How Molecules Move Electrons, a talk by Christopher Allen

I wish we lived closer to Machine Project because they host so many cool activities. This Friday, they are hosting a lecture about how molecules move electrons.
Christopher Allen will give a talk on how molecules move electrons, and how this applies to the design of new materials. Two different processes will be discussed. The movement of electrons hoping from one independent molecule to another will be illustrated by the example of a glucose sensor. The process of electrons moving around within a molecule will be illustrated with the example of conductive plastics used in flexible display panels. Also discussed will be how chemists utilize their knowledge of the geometrical and electronic structure of molecules to design new materials.

Years ago, I attended a workshop about hyperbolic crochet at machine.
