ACS Indiana – American Chemical Society – Indiana Section

The spring meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) is almost here! Emmanuel College students will be traveling with Dr. Gerdon, Dr. Watt, and Dr. Lau to Indianapolis – the Crossroads of America – for this amazing conference. It is time to be immersed in – and geek-out about – global chemistry fun. If you’re looking for some great talks and posters, look no further. Here’s your guide to great chemistry:
