#ORGNVideo The Division is holding a video contest to highlight the benefits of membership in the division. Undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are invited to submit videos of up to 3 minutes. Five prizes of $1,500 in travel support to the ACS 2016 Spring National Meeting in San Diego will be awarded. The videos will be judged by a panel of prominent organic chemists from industry and academia. One prize will be awarded to the video with the greatest number of views, in addition to several other award categories. The submission deadline is September 28, 2015.
Contest details are available at www.organicdivision.org/videocontest. http://ow.ly/OTFNS

The Division has recently started a public YouTube Channel to compliment the Members only videos available on our website. Our first public video is a recording of Nobel Laureate (2010) and Professor Emeritus Richard F. Heck Presenting at Queen's University Canada in September of 2006. 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 Division of Organic Chemistry. http://ow.ly/Oklbi

C&EN Organic Scene: Teaching An Old Cobalt Complex New Tricks

Chemists have tweaked a century-old, chiral cobalt complex to catalyze reactions via hydrogen bond donors on the ligands, rather than at the central metal. The researchers think the new class of versatile and low-cost enantioselective catalysts may greatly broaden the options for synthesizing enantiomerically pure pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals: http://cenm.ag/org55
Hydrogen bond donation catalysis is becoming increasingly popular as a strategy for controlling enantioselectivity. Previous work has focused on organic catalysts containing NH and OH groups that catalyze reactions by stabilizing transition states in specific orientations through hydrogen ...

The ACS Organic Division (ORGN) fosters and promotes advancement of the field of organic chemistry.
Introduction
The Mission of the ACS Organic Division (ORGN) is to foster and promote advancement of the field of organic chemistry. This is done through the organization and sponsorship of lectures, posters and awards at ACS-sponsored meetings, the National Organic Symposium, Organic Reactions Mechanisms Conference, and elsewhere. ORGN also promotes graduate and undergraduate education in organic chemistry through programs such as the DOC Graduate Research Fellowship program, Travel Awards, etc., maintains a web presence to provide information to our membership, and collaborates within the ACS, its committees, and other ACS divisions in advancing the goals of ACS and of ORGN.
