SciFinder Seminar: April 29

SciFinder Solutions
Wed., April 29
Mallet Chemistry Library
Seminar Room, WEL 2.132J

Join Feroze Ali, Application Specialist from Chemical Abstracts Service, for an informal seminar on getting the most out of SciFinder, the world's most powerful literature tool. You'll learn about the latest features and power-searching tricks. Bring your questions and your laptop if you wish. Light snacks will be available!

New Journal: ACS Central Science

ACS has launched its first fully open access journal, free to read and also free to publish in, with no author processing charges. [4/6/15]

New RSC Database: Synthetic Reaction Updates

RSC has launched a new current awareness database service, merging the now discontinued (but still available) Catalysts and catalysed reactions and Methods in organic synthesis databases into one source, starting with 2015. SRU covers graphical abstracts from a selected group of 35 primary journals. You can browse SRU by date, search by keyword and reaction type, and set up personal searches and email alerts. [4/2/15]

Poster Printing now in PCL

The poster printer formerly located in the WEL media lab is now operating in PCL Copier Services, downstairs in PCL. More information [3/2/15]

50 Years Ago: Cyclobutadieneiron tricarbonyl synthesis

In early 1965 researchers working under UT chemistry professor Rowland Pettit reported the landmark synthesis of this iron complex of cyclobutadiene, which for the first time was shown to have aromatic properties. It opened a fruitful period of exploration in the quest to create the elusive cyclobutadiene in its free state. (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 87, 1965, 131-2.) [2/3/15]

100 Years Ago: William Thornton Read

william thornton read
William Thornton Read (1886-1972) was appointed Instructor in chemistry for the spring term of 1915. A student of J.R. Bailey, Read had earned an M.A. in organic chemistry at UT and went on to earn his PhD at Yale in 1921. He was the founding professor in the chemistry department at Texas Technological College (now Texas Tech) in 1925. He authored an important textbook in industrial chemistry and was subsequently dean of chemistry at Rutgers University. [1/6/15]
