A Discussion of the Pros and Cons of Functional Group Theory 
Robert Tisserand, Marco Valussi, Tim Miller and Melani Kovac 

Each year the AIA offers one webinar that is open to members and non-members alike at no cost. This year we are pleased to present a discussion on the pros and cons of Functional Group Theory. 

Robert Tisserand and Marco Valussi will state why this is not an adequate theory and why Functional Group Theory should not be relied on in aromatherapy chemistry. 

Tim Miller and Melani Kovac will discuss why Functional Group Theory can be helpful and why it should, at least in the beginning, be used for students taking aromatherapy programs. 

Each speaker will have 10 minutes to present his/her point of view after which the lines will be opened for questions. 

Please note the time of this webinar – three of four of the speakers are located in Europe which means that noon MST worked best for them. 

The order of the speakers, in alphabetical order, will be: 

Marco Valussi 

Melani Kovac 

Robert Tisserand 

Tim Miller
