"Ligand Exchange, Hydrides, and Metal-Metal Bonds:
An Investigation into the Synthesis, Structure, and Reactivity of Group 12 Metal Complexes in Sulfur-Rich Environments"

Presented by Ava Kreider-Mueller (Parkin & Owen Groups)

Monday, July 28, 2014 at 4:30pm

Room 209 Havemeyer

 

The tris(2-mercapto-1-t-butylimidazolyl)hydroborato ligand has been used to synthesize the first monomeric zinc complex featuring a terminal hydride, [TmBut]ZnH, in a sulfur rich coordination environment and its reactivity towards a variety of reagents, including group 6 metal hydride complexes, has been investigated.  For example, [TmBut]ZnH and [TmBut]MR (M = Zn, Cd; R = Me) have proven to be useful precursors in the synthesis of a series of heterobimetallic [TmBut]M-M’Cp(CO)3 (M’ = Cr, Mo, W) complexes,  and the first molecular structures of complexes featuring Cr-Zn and W-Cd bonds, namely [TmBut]Zn-CrCp(CO)3 and [TmBut]Cd-WCp(CO)3, have been obtained.  Additionally, [TmBut]MR complexes have been used to synthesize a variety of [TmBut]MO2CR complexes, and an overview of carboxylate ligand exchange will be discussed.

Speaker: Dr. Luis Avila, Columbia University
A student-­‐centered approach to materials science for high school students:
The Introduction to Materials Science and Nanotechnology summer program A three-­‐week student-­‐centered summer program designed to expose junior and senior high school students to materials science and nanotechnology problems is described. The program activities are grouped into two learning stages: The training-­‐learning stage and the educating-­‐learning stage.  The training-­‐learning stage integrates a wide range of teaching strategies, including informal and formal learning. The educating-­‐learning stage is a Problem-­‐Based Learning (PBL) session in which the students solve ill structured problems in the form of independent projects. At the end of the program the students present their results in a public poster session. The effectiveness of the program has been evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively using Students Assessment of their Learning Gains (SALG) surveys.
 
Speaker: Reyne Pullen, University of Tasmania
Improving the student laboratory experience using alternative teaching methods:
In an effort to improve upon the laboratory experience had by students at the University of Tasmania, Australia, this study investigates the advantages and disadvantages in using different teaching methods. The unit in question is the foundational chemistry unit taken by students lacking the pre-­‐requisites to enter into first year chemistry. Current laboratory experiments prior to this study most closely relate to Expository as teaching method and the methods to be investigated including pure Expository, Guided Inquiry, and Problem solving. A total of four experiments were considered covering several experiment types including basic skills, separation by distillation, identification of an unknown organic acid, and fundamentals of acids, bases and buffers. Results have been obtained for each of the teaching methods and statistical analysis has been carried out. This study will be extended for further iterations within the foundation unit in addition to considering experiments from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year levels of chemistry units. This project intends to not only improve the laboratories currently used at the University of Tasmania, School of Chemistry, but also provide insight into which teaching methods are appropriate depending on experiment type.

Synthesis, Structure, and Reactivity of Transition Metal Silyl Complexes

Presented by Ashley Zuzek (Parkin Group)

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 2:00pm
Room 209 Havemeyer

Abstract: 

Transition metal catalysts are essential to many important transformations in silane chemistry; therefore, an in-depth knowledge of both the reactivity of transition metal compounds with hydrosilanes and the coordination of silanes to metal centers is valuable in gaining a better understanding of metal-catalyzed silane chemistry. In this talk, I will examine the reactivity of silane (SiH4) and the series of phenylsilanes (PhxSiH4-x) with electron-rich molybdenum and tungsten trimethylphosphine complexes.  These reactions afford a variety of novel silyl, hypervalent silyl, bridging silylene, silane, and disilane complexes.  Structural and spectroscopic characterization, along with mechanistic investigations and computational work, will be discussed.

The Earth Institute has developed the Sustainability Essentials Training Program for people who wish to explore the concepts and principles of sustainability and who want to learn how to introduce sustainability practices into their organizations, new projects, and other aspects of their lives.

SET is a 40-hour, non-credit training Program designed to address the four central areas of achieving sustainability. The Program offers well-designed lectures and participatory learning experiences designed to address four key questions:
- What is sustainability and how does one manage it in any organization?
- How can government policy and regulation speed the transition to a sustainable economy?
- How do we create a built environment, including workplaces, buildings, and infrastructure, while conserving water and energy and reducing environmental damage?
- How can we finance sustainability initiatives that may be risky and involve a long time gap between investment and pay-off?

How to Crack the Coding Interview: Skills and Strategies for Software Engineers and PMs

Speaker: 
Gayle Laakmann McDowell, Founder / CEO of CareerCup.com and Author of Cracking the Coding Interview, Cracking the PM Interview, The Google Resume.
 
Topic: 
CS interviews are a different breed from other interviews and, as such, require specialized skills and techniques. This talk will teach you how to prepare for coding and PM interviews, what top companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft really look for, and how to tackle the toughest programming and algorithm problems. This is not a fluffy be-your-best talk; it is deeply technical and will discuss specific algorithm and data structure topics.
 
Signed copies of McDowell's Cracking the Coding Interview and Cracking the PM Interview will be on sale after the talk. Cracking the Coding Interview is the #1 interview prep book for software engineers and Cracking the PM Interview serves the same purpose, but for product managers. The Google Resume is a broader book to teach people what they need to do to position themselves for a tech job, starting from early in college up through the offer and job performance itself. 
 
Bio:
Gayle Laakmann McDowell is the founder and CEO of CareerCup.com and the author of Cracking the Coding Interview, Cracking the PM Interview, and The Google Resume. CareerCup is the leading source of technical interview preparation and provides a free forum with 8000+ technical interview questions, a book, a video, and mock interviews. 
 
Gayle has worked as a Software Engineer for Google, Microsoft and Apple and has extensive interviewing experience on both sides of the table. She has interviewed and received offers from Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, IBM, Goldman Sachs and a variety of other firms, and she has interviewed over 120 candidates at Google and served on its hiring committee. 
 

Gayle holds a BSE and MSE from UPenn in Computer Science, and an MBA from the Wharton School.
