Among the topics Golton will cover are:The Small & Medium Business series, part of the ACS Webinars program, features industry experts and luminaries that address business topics on issues faced by scientists, entrepreneurs, and executives in small/med companies. There will be a 30-minute presentation by Golton followed by a Q & A session.

News media and scientists can tune into the conference without charge, but must register in advance.

Golton retired from DuPont in 1994, prior to becoming a successful consultant. While at DuPont, he managed a large analytical and physical measurement group. He also started and managed the quality program for a $2 billion business. Later, Golton moved to the pharmaceutical business to run a highly visible corporate LIMS project. After DuPont, he joined The CECON Group, a broker for independent consultants in science and engineering, where he recently retired as Vice President of the company. He is a founder and the first chair of the Chemical Consultants Network, a volunteer organization supported by the Philadelphia Section of ACS, and by American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Golton holds a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry.
