Organic Chemists Tap the Rockies

I'm in Boulder, Colorado this week for the National Organic Symposium. As I write this, Robert Grubbs is giving his talk to a packed auditorium. Later this afternoon, I'll be joining a group of chemists on a tour of the Coors Brewing Company. I hope the tour guides are prepared for interesting questions. Watch the blog for news and more updates.

  1. while at the cakebread vineyard in napa, my tour group coincidentally ended up being composed of me, a biomedical engineer and a biochemist. our guide, also coincidentally, was some sort of an engineer. he was amazingly knowledgeable about the science of making wine. it was such a great tour! i’ll be interested to hear how the coors folks manage–ask about what molecule is associated with skunking!

  2. It turns out that the tour was self-guided…. hopefully blog post to come on it anyway though.
