Creative Problem Solving in Chemical Research

May 05, 2011
ACS Webinar (

Chemists are expected to be problem solvers! Such problems might involve obtaining new research ideas, improving processes and production in industry, or dealing with problems that arise during research. Too often, we apply a random process or follow the same way - and receive poor results.  Great problem solving requires creativity.  Join our speaker, Dr. Bill Mattson, who has successfully trained many chemists to be creative problem solvers, as he engages you in an interactive presentation focused on providing insights that will strengthen and improve your creative thinking abilities. Be the Creative Chemist you can be!

ACS Webinars is a free, weekly online event serving to connect ACS members and scientific professionals with subject matter experts and global thought leaders in chemical sciences, management, and business. The ACS Webinars are divided into several series that address topics of interest to the chemical and scientific community; these series include career development, professional growth, small & medium business, green chemistry, and executive view. Each webinar is 60 minutes in length, comprising a short presentation followed by Q&A with the speaker. The live webinars are held on Thursdays (and many Tuesdays on career topics) from 2-3pm ET.  Recordings of the webinars are available online and upcoming events are posted at
