The College of Sciences and Mathematics will present the Schneller Frontiers Lecture featuring Shannon Stahl, professor of chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The lecture will take place on Thursday, Aug. 31, at 3:45 p.m., in 115 Sciences Center Classrooms Building. Stahl will give a talk titled, "Catalytic Reactions with O2: From Pharmaceutical Synthesis to Fuel Cells.” His research focus is catalysis, with an emphasis on catalytic aerobic oxidation reactions for chemical synthesis. Additional efforts focus on the chemistry of molecular oxygen related to energy conversion, including fuel cells and solar energy conversion.

Stahl is an American Chemical Society Arthur C. Cope recipient and has been recognized with the American Chemical Society Award for Affordable Green Chemistry. He is a Senior Research Awardee of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. To date, he has 175 publications and 17 patent applications to his credit. His current research group is composed of 18 doctoral students and seven postdoctoral associates.

The Schneller Frontiers Lectureship is endowed by Stewart Schneller, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and his wife. The event recognizes international pioneers in chemistry and biochemistry. The lecture is open to the public, and refreshments will be served prior to the talk at 3:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Chemistry Building.
