Simply Complex: Precisely Manufactured Simple Molecules for Today’s Applications

November 22, 2018

On November 30, Dr. Rob Hart, head of R&D from The Shepherd Chemical Company (Cincinnati, USA) is invited to present a seminar at our Institute.

“It turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks”.

Rob Hart, 2018

You are all invited to attend and discover how the chemistry and manufacture of simple molecules like basic copper nitrate, cobalt neodecanoate, zinc octoate and chromium acetate is in fact complex and interesting. Advanced characterization techniques, precise chemical engineering and strategic partnerships create opportunities for these types of materials to play a prominent role in technologies that impact us every day. 

Rob Hart is the Head of R&D from The Shepherd Chemical Company . He obtained his bachelor’s degree from University of Wisconsin and his Ph.D.from Indiana University where he worked with Prof. Josef Zwanziger on ceramic glasses. After graduation, he did a post-doc at Argonne National Lab where he worked with Chris Benmore, Ph.D. on characterizing optics, glasses, refractories, molecular liquids, etc. with neutron and x-rays cattering. Rob joined Shepherd Chemical in 2005 and has served numerous roles in the company from chemist and characterization lab manager to production manager and now Head of R&D.

Looking forward to meeting you all there!
