The Business of Chemistry and the Chemistry of Business

October 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Business of Chemistry and the Chemistry of Business — the view from Ephraim Honig, Ph.D. ’86, COO of Strem Chemicals, Inc. Chemicals, a small specialty chemicals business operating for more than 50 years in a multi-billion dollar global market.

Did the discovery of Ferrocene in 1951 lead to the founding of Strem Chemicals by a Brown History major? What products did the fledgling company offer its first customers and why are they still important in today’s state of the art electronics and life-saving drug products? What is the process for adding add new products? How does the company continue to provide innovative products to its customers and compete with giant multi-billion dollar global competitors? What role do strategy, execution, and people play? These questions and more will be presented at this seminar.

Event sponsored by the Department of Chemistry and the Jonathan M. Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship.
