“Live” online ACS CELL Division meeting

In place of the cancelled 2020 ACS Spring National Meeting in Philadelphia, the CELL Division ran a successful “live” online CELL Division meeting – “New Horizons: Early Career Researchers in Renewable Materials” to share some of the exciting research in the area of cellulose and renewable materials to our division members. This two-day “Live and Online” Division meeting was held remotely on YouTube Live Stream on the 22nd and 23rd April 2020. The event attracted over 100 virtual attendees. 

On Day 1 – 22nd April 2020, we had an exciting line up of presentations:
