Throughout the academic year, the Department of Chemistry invites professors from other universities and institutes to speak at the University of Colorado Boulder in one of four seminar categories: analytical/environmental chemistry, materials and nanoscience chemistry, organic/inorganic chemistry and physical chemistry.

These seminars provide an opportunity for faculty and students to learn about exciting current research at other universities.

Seminars are free and open to the public

You can find more information about the Analytical Seminars here.
