Fast Facts
• There are 12 Nobel Laureates with ties to UCLA (3 are alumni and 3 are faculty of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry) • The London Times Higher Education ranks UCLA as the 13th top University in the World and 8th in World Reputation • UCLA has 10 National Medal of Science Winners (5 of whom are faculty members in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry) • There are 50 National Academy of Science Members (12 of whom are Chemistry & Biochemistry faculty)

The Super Supercapacitor
In “The Super Supercapacitor,” Maher ElKady (a student in Prof. Richard Kaner’s group receiving his Ph.D. today!) can be seen throwing a handful of batteries into the “battery recycling bin,” in favor of running everyday gadgets with a superior replacement, the graphene supercapacitor. Graphene supercapacitors are not only biodegradable, but are also able to charge and discharge about 100 to 1000 times faster than the average alkaline battery.*

Distinguished Lecture Series
We welcome you to join us for the inaugural UCLA Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry Distinguished Lecture Series. The lecture series will be geared toward students, faculty, friends, and alumni whose interests range from systems biology and complex molecule synthesis, to nanomaterials and chemical theory. The Inaugural Fall Lecture will be presented by Professor Frances H. Arnold (CalTech) on November 6, 2013 at UCLA.*

The 2013 Glenn T. Seaborg Medal will be awarded to Professor Kendall Houk. Houk received A.B., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard. He has taught at Louisiana State University and the University of Pittsburgh, before coming to UCLA in 1986. From 1988-1990, he was Director of the Chemistry Division of the National Science Foundation. He was chair of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry from 1991-1994, and became the Saul Winstein Chair in Organic Chemistry in 2009. The 2013 Seaborg Symposium & Medal Award Dinner will take place on Oct. 26, 2013. Please visit www.seaborg.ucla.edu for more information.

If you are waitlisted. you have a good chance of getting into the class.Frequently Asked Questions I can’t enroll in a Chemistry class. Even if your name is on the waitlist. as it is difficult to do well in courses where you are not fully prepared. Professors will not waive prerequisites simply because you need the class to graduate. This rule is only waived if you bring in written permission from the instructor stating that s/he knows the prerequisites have not been completed and is still allowing you to enroll in the class. What can I do? If you have taken the prerequisites for a UCLA chemistry class at a different school. the enrollment coordinator.

You should sign up on the waiting list and show up to class on the first day. or you cannot enroll for another reason-. Can I enroll in a class that I have not met the prerequisites for? You are not able to enroll in a chemistry class unless you meet the prerequisites. The professor will give enrollment spots to graduating seniors first. Be sure to attend class on the first day.
