ACS Webinars, Live from New Orleans!

ACS Webinars, Live from New Orleans!

ACS Webinars is hitting the road this April to broadcast some of the excitement LIVE from the ACS National Meeting straight to you. Indulge yourself with a live food chemistry demonstration and then redeem yourself by learning about the chemistry of weight loss. Learn about how developments in lipid self assembly can be applied to medicine and cleaning our environment.  You will also learn how you can win funding for your ideas on how to make products out of waste. We hope you’ll join us!

“Future of Lipid Self Assembly: From Drug Delivery to Dispersants for Oil Spills”

Meet The Expert
Dr. John works in the highly interdisciplinary areas of lipid self-assembly, drug and vaccine delivery, and the development of nanostructured materials. He currently leads a consortium project for the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (, called the Consortium for the Molecular Engineering of Dispersant Systems (C-MEDS). This group’s primary objective is to design the next generation of dispersants and understand the fundamentals of the  oil-water interface in the presence of dispersants.

    Ah! You guys should probably mention that Shirley Corriher used to make regular appearances on Good Eats! I can’t think of anything else that would be more appealing to us scientific chefs out there.

  10. admin says:

    Hi Erik, unfortunely I will be absent from the next meeting at New Orleans.
    I like to suggest for a future webminar to discuss something concerning catalysis for layman or beginners.

    Recipe Idea:
    As a savory homage to lemon meringue pie, I’d use the garlic meringue as a topping on a quiche! This might even entice some egg-shy kids I know to try it… they’ll eat ANYTHING that looks like dessert!

    Awesome Frittata

    2 eggs
    3 tbsp milk
    1 Italian sausage
    1/4 c onion, diced
    1/4 c red bell pepper, diced
    1/2 jalapeno (optional)
    1 tbsp olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Grated fresh parmesan cheese
    White truffle olive oil

    Fry up sausage in a frying pan. Add olive oil, onion when sausage is almost browned. Fry mixture until onion is translucent (3-4 min). Add bell pepper and jalapeno and fry for 1 minute. Pour in egg from outside to center of pan, salt and pepper to taste, and cook 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and put under broiler for 3-4 minutes. Place onto serving plate and drizzle with white truffle oil.

  23. Cindy F says:

    BTW, using the garlic-stabilized egg white for the frittata would make it fluffier and add a great flavor!

  24. Rick says:

    Perhaps garlic-stabilized egg whites allows us to make savory île flottante (the classic french dessert)?

    Season garlic-stabilized egg white foam with salt and bring to thick meringue stage. Poach in water or milk.

    Add to a bowl of parmesan creme anglaise:
    2 cups whole milk
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 C parmesan
    6 egg yolks (reserved from stabilized egg whites)
    1 tablespoon honey
    salt & white pepper to taste
    Heat cream, milk, and parmesan to simmer a few minutes and thicken/melt cheese.
    Whip egg yolks. Slowly add cream mixture in stream as you stir.
    Season with honey, salt, and white pepper.

  25. Robert says:

    Recipe to use eggwhite foam (I want a cookbook! obviously I need one! LOL).

    Low cholesterol Eggwhite Openface Omelette
    Whip 6 eggwhites and 1 tsp garlic juice into a foam. Saute in 1 tsp oil chopped vegetables as desired, such as 2 Tbsp onion, 3 Tbsp red pepper, 3 Tbsp mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste. When vegetables are softened, add the eggwhite mixture. Flip after 2 minutes. Cook another minute, then serve vegetable side up. Optionally, add shredded cheese immediately after flipping.
