Dr. Jay Switzer, Chancellor’s Professor and Curators’ Distinguished Professor emeritus of chemistry, will deliver the sixth annual Stoffer Lecture at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8, in the Monsanto Lecture Hall (Room G3) of Schrenk Hall.
Recently, Switzer was awarded a patent for a new method of creating metal foils with ordered crystal structure. The metal-based foils made of gold, silver or copper are used to make electronics, especially flexible electronics used in wearable technology. His research combines chemistry with materials science to create these high-performance inorganic thin films. He has published extensively in the area of inorganic materials chemistry.
The lecture series was established by Dr. James O. Stoffer, Missouri S&T Curators’ Distinguished Professor emeritus of chemistry. It gives the campus and Rolla communities an opportunity to learn from scholars and innovators in the field of polymer chemistry and related areas.
