"Dr. Rajendra Rathore Colloquium of Chemistry" seminar series has been established at the Department of Chemistry, IIT Kanpur, through an endowment fund created through generous contributions from Mrs. Rajni Nigam, wife of late Dr. Rajendra Rathore, and their family members and well-wishers.

Dr. Rajendra Rathore, Pfletschinger-Habermann Professor of Organic Chemistry at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA, departed this world on February 16, 2018, after a short but strenuous battle with pulmonary disease. Dr. Rathore was an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur who received his M.Sc. degree in Chemistry in 1986. Dr. Rathore was a scientist of the highest calibre. A pioneer in the field of organic and synthetic chemistry, he made key contributions to the areas of organic supramolecular and materials chemistry.
