My ACS Dallas experience

Since this blog is also my diary, I thought it would be a good idea to write down the talks I have been to at ACS Dallas this year. 

First of all, it was the greatest experience I have had as an undergrad. I have seen so many great chemists and I had the chance to listen to some of them. Unfortunately, we left the meeting on Tuesday at noon, so, I missed many great talks.
