Lecture/Seminar DR RICHARD ZARE Chemical "Fizzics" & the Chemistry of Drink 2013-09-17 19:30:00

Vifor Pharma Distinguished Speaker Series presents DR RICHARD ZARE Chemical "Fizzics" & the Chemistry of Drink


Chemistry is all around us, not just in a laboratory.
Some great examples are the drinks we consume. This lecture is about drinks; alcoholic, carbonated, or otherwise. Join us as we ponder such questions as why James Bond prefers to have his vodka Martini shaken, but not stirred.
Dr. Zare--with his unique ability to translate complex science into every-day examples--will fill his lecture with demonstrations illustrating the world of bubbles. At first one might think that bubbles cannot occupy the thoughts of a serious, award-winning scientist. Yet with his trademark passion and zany enthusiasm, Dr. Zare will elucidate some amazing technological applications for bubbles--such as the recovery of oil from tired oil wells, by making a raisin rise in a glass of champagne.
Be warned: this is the tamest of his experiments. Those attending should be prepared for some surprises as Dr. Zare explores the topic of chemical “fizzics.” Only the brave should sit in the front row.
