Other Notable Organic Chemistry Videos

The Division webmasters have compiled a page of other noteworthy videos from around the web. While most of these videos are not the product of the Division, they are of likely to be of interest to the diverse membership of the division.


The face of disease in Sub-Saharan Africa | Richmond Sarpong | TEDxBerkeley

Richmond Sarpong, who was born in Ghana, West Africa, is a professor of chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, where he has been since 2004. He moved to the United States in 1991 after a childhood and adolescent years in Ghana, Zambia, and Botswana, respectively.

What do you think of when you hear, “disease in sub-Saharan Africa?” Richmond Sarpong invites us to reject stereotypes and redefine the face of disease in Africa.


R B Woodward
Speaking on Cephalosporin C

Recorded at the Technion in Haifa some time in late 1965 or more probably in 1966. One of the first video taped chemistry lectures so you may need to turn up your audio. This is also excellent example of Woodward’s mastery of “boardwork”

The Video is part of the Imperial College London’s chemistry video clip archive


Richard Heck Lecture
Queens University September 2006

Recording of Nobel Laureate (2010) and Professor Emeritus Richard F. Heck Presenting at Queen’s University Canada in September of 2006. 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 Division of Organic Chemistry.
