Roald Hoffmann, who received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1981, delivered the 2014 Kilpatrick Lecture on Monday, September 15, in the McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC) Auditorium. A poster session followed the lecture, exhibiting some of the ongoing research in chemical sciences at IIT, along with a reception. This was the second time that Hoffmann was selected; he also gave the lecture in 1973 and is one of seven Nobel Laureates to deliver the prestigious Kilpatrick Lecture. More »
