Who Will Win the #ChemNobel? Predicting the 2023 Nobel Laureate(s) in Chemistry

ACS Webinars

Can’t wait until Oct. 4 when the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announces the winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry? Neither can we. 

Join Laura Howes of Chemical & Engineering News and a panel of special guests as they make their predictions for who will receive this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry and why. Enjoy a lively discussion about why prize winners are often polymaths, whether hot topics in chemistry like Artificial Intelligence, and the COVID-19 pandemic will impact this year’s decision-making process, and which fields of science (and scientists) that our panel believes are historically underrepresented and should be considered for future awards.

During this free interactive broadcast cast your virtual vote and ask the panelists questions about Nobel-worthy science! This is ACS Webinar is co-produced by Chemical & Engineering News.
