ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: Chemical detective work in the form of modern chemical methods can be used to examine both ancient and medieval artifacts. Orna will discuss the ways these probes are used in: clarifying the techniques used in making these objects, determining their content, and dating their origins. The variety of methods used in the examination of such materials as ancient textiles, pigments in medieval manuscripts, medieval stained glass, Middle Eastern obsidian and pottery, and 20th century art forgeries will be discussed. Although those methods give great insight into the objects in question, there are limits to such technology; the limitations of those techniques will be presented.

Orna was a major contributor to the ACS symposium series on The Posthumous Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Volume 2. Ladies in Waiting for the Nobel Prize (2018).

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: This talk will highlight the extraordinary contributions that women chemists have made to our health and well-being through such inventions as chemotherapeutic agents, Kevlar, Scotchgard, Permanent Press fabrics, and easy self-diagnosis for diabetes. All of these women have been inducted into the National Inventors’ Hall of Fame, an institution that celebrates the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of great inventors by showcasing exhibits and presentations that allow the public to experience the excitement of discovery, creativity and imagination.

PRIOR TO THE LECTURE:  At 6:00PM there will be an inaugural meeting of the SD Mentor Group. All women chemists and chemical engineers interested in mentoring junior and senior chemistry/biochemistry majors are urged to attend this meeting.  Those women individuals interested in joining this effort who are unable to attend the meeting should contact Jackie Trischman (trischma@csusm.edu).
