GVSU Ott Lecture features award-winning chemist: The Arnold C. Ott Lectureship in Chemistry at Grand Valley State University features Harry B. Gray, professor of chemistry and founding director of the Beckman Institute at the California Institute of Technology. Gray will give a public lecture at 6 p.m. Sept. 22 and address Grand Valley students Sept. 23. His public lecture, “The 21st Century Solar Army,” will be held in Grand Rapids at the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, 301 Michigan St. “The sun is a boundless source of clean energy, but it goes down every night,” said Gray. “We and many others are trying to design solar-driven molecular machines that could be used on a global scale to store solar energy by splitting water into its elemental components, hydrogen and oxygen. We have recruited hundreds of students to join a solar army whose mission is the discovery of brand new metal-oxide catalysts for solar water splitters.” Gray’s research addresses a wide range of fundamental problems in inorganic chemistry, biochemistry and biophysics. Electron transfer chemistry is a unifying theme for much of this research. His lecture to students will take place at 1 p.m. Sept. 23 in Manitou Hall on Grand Valley’s Allendale campus. The lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the GVSU Chemistry Department at (616) 331-3317 or visit www.gvsu.edu/chem.
