Categories: News

Today, October 10th, 2015, the DOC regrettably learned that Nobel Laureate (2010) and Professor Emeritus Richard F. Heck passed away. We are honored to help celebrate his life and career by providing a video of him lecturing at Queen’s University Canada in September of 2006. To view the video on YouTube, follow this link:

Note: We did as much enhancement as we could on the audio, so you might need to turn up the audio on your computer to hear his lecture. Special thanks to Prof. Victor Snieckus for his generous donation of this video to the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry as well as the CSC Division of Organic Chemistry. We graciously thank Professor Heck who agreed to allow us to provide this recording back in June 2015 and we send our condolences to his family and friends.
