Stone Symposium 2018

The Stone Symposium will be May 23rd and 24th at the Baylor Sciences Building in Waco, TX. This will be the 7th annual Stone Symposium and this year’s theme is “Organometallic Chemistry”

Baylor has been organizing a symposium in honour of the late F. Gordon A. Stone who spent the last 20 years of his career at Baylor leaving a legacy here. The symposium started in 2010 while Prof. Stone was still working at Baylor. Unfortunately he passed away in 2011 and we have made the Symposium an annual event celebrating his achievements and impact on the chemistry community.
