The temporary exhibit Walking in the Woods with Chemistry at the UC Davies Arboretum is spread across several collections in the Arboretum and focuses on plants and their chemistry. The exhibit reveals some of the research of UC Davis Chemistry Professor Dean Tantillo, Plant Biology Professor Philipp Zerbe, and Chemistry Ph.D. candidate Nhu Nguyen. We are grateful to obtain a tour to the exhibit by members of this group. Professor Philipp Zerbe will lead us around the garden to see some of the signs and tell us some fun stories about plants and their applications. Discussions and questions are always greatly welcome.

This exhibit was described in a recent (5/9) C&EN article.

Number of participants limited to 30.  Please register with the California Section office, or 510-351-9922.
