The chemistry of early actinide elements continues to be a flourishing field of active research. Join us as Dr. John Arnold, Department of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley, presents "New actinide chemistry and connections to future nuclear energy challenges". This topic has received considerable attention in the last few years. Dr. Arnold will present works from his current research on uranium and seawater, and describe recent results from our laboratory concerning the synthesis and reactivity of Th and U derivatives incorporating new supporting ligands.
