METTLER TOLEDO Presents Kinetic Experimentation Webinar

Press release from: METTLER TOLEDO

METTLER TOLEDO has expanded its leading webinar program with an interactive event focused on teaching chemical kinetic experimentation methods. The event will aid in the training of industrial chemists worldwide.

METTLER TOLEDO will hold a webinar, entitled “Teaching Chemical Kinetic Experimentation,” on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. By demonstrating basic kinetics experiments, guest lecturer Professor John R. Sowa, Jr. will explore how the methodology he uses in chemistry instruction can help those in industry improve their understanding of chemical reactions to obtain more predictable and reproducible lab results. All interested parties are invited to attend.

“Most experiments performed in teaching labs are related to synthesis, qualitative and quantitative analysis instead of kinetics, because kinetics experiments are not easy to set up and perform,” says Professor Sowa, who teaches Chemistry and Biochemistry at Seton Hall University. “However, kinetics are fundamental to understanding and predicting a chemical reaction’s progress and critical when evaluating industrial chemical processes.”

Professor Sowa will demonstrate experiments that determine reaction order, rate constants and energy of activation on well-characterized unimolecular, bimolecular and catalytic reactions using the METTLER TOLEDO EasyMax. Attendees will learn how to understand and measure the kinetics of these reactions, as well as how to run their own kinetic experiments to obtain useful data using EasyMax.

A full understanding of kinetic experiment set-up and measurement methods should help anyone involved in teaching chemistry as well as enhance the working knowledge of professional chemists. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions relevant to their particular applications in an interactive Q&A session after experiments have been conducted.

Registration for the METTLER TOLEDO webinar is free and can be completed online at: http://us.mt.com/us/en/home/events/webinar/live/kinetic-ez.html

METTLER TOLEDO specializes in the area of precision instruments for professional use. METTLER TOLEDO laboratory instruments are used in research, scientific, drug discovery, and quality control labs, amongst many others in the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and cosmetics industries.
