This annual event was established in 2001 to honor and celebrate the late Prof. Joseph Bunnett’s seminal contributions: Prof. Bunnett was a pioneer in his sub-discipline of physical organic chemistry and a founding member of our department. The Bunnett Symposium has evolved into an opportunity to connect past and present friends of the Department for discussion, accompanied by exposure to seminal ideas in chemistry through the distinguished lecture, and an Awards Ceremony where we honor the academic and research achievements of our current crop of outstanding undergraduates. Due to the COVID pandemic, this year’s Bunnett lecture will be held remotely. We hope to return to our in-person gathering, with poster session and dinner, next year.
