Allegheny College Assistant Professor of Chemistry Timothy Chapp will present “Hydrogen, Hydrogenases and Their Potential Roles in Contributing to Sustainable Energy.” The lecture is a part of the Karl W. Weiss ’87 Faculty Lecture Series, and will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. in Campus Center 301/302.
Chapp will be speaking on how hydrogen gas can contribute to alternative energy solutions, specifically through electrolysis. His presentation will analyze how hydrogen, found primarily in bonds with other elements, can be withdrawn from those bonds into a usable state. He will also analyze how the natural gas industry influences hydrogen collection in his pursuit of more efficient electrolysis.
The Karl W. Weiss ’87 Faculty Lecture Series features professors from various departments representing the diversity of scholarship at Allegheny. The lecture is free and open to the public.
