Do not be afraid of organic chemistry. | Jakob Magolan | TEDxUIdaho

Organic chemistry, like many subjects in science, is percieved to be hard. Scientists are assumed to be unfriendly super smart people who speak a foreign language. However, what if you could learn any ‘hard’ science in 15 minutes or less? In this talk, Jakob Magolan breaks the stereotype and teaches the basics of organic chemistry in 15 minutes. Jakob received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Western University in Canada. After three years of postdoctoral research at the Eskitis Institute for Drug Discovery in Australia, he joined the chemistry faculty at the University of Idaho where he teaches organic chemistry and runs a research program focused on organic synthetic methods and drug discovery. Jakob was recently granted tenure and has received awards in recognition of his research, teaching, and mentorship of students. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
