Homecoming Chemistry Speaker: Dr. Dan Moser

Friday, October 9, 2020 1:25pm to 2:25pm

“Synthetic Chemists and the Semiconductor Industry”

Dr. Dan Moser, Senior R&D Manager, EMD Performance Materials, Sheboygan WI

After graduating from UND Chemistry with a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry, Dan moved onto the University of Wisconsin where he was a post-doctoral fellow under Professor Robert West from 2000-2002, studying silylene and germylene compounds.  Upon leaving the UW, Dan moved onto a teaching position at Southwestern Oklahoma State University where he taught general and inorganic chemistry and led research in silylene and germylene chemistry.  After a two year stay in Oklahoma, Dan moved to Sigma Aldrich Corporation in their SAFC custom chemical division back in his home state of Wisconsin. 

As a scientist in the lab, he was responsible for small scale research and development of processes to be scaled to high volume.  This development side piqued his curiosity into high volume manufacturing of semiconductor grade organometallics and metal organics.  After several years in the laboratory, Dan was promoted to lead the R&D team at the Sheboygan where he has been expanding the team and providing precursors for advanced nodes in the semiconductor space.  Sigma Aldrich was purchased by Merck KGaA in Germany in 2015 and Dan continues to oversee synthesis, purification, and precursor studies as a Sr. Manager in EMD Performance Materials.
