Members of the group travelled to Birmingham to present their work at Materials Chemistry 14, organised by the RSC. Rachel gave a keynote talk on the Bottom-Up Design of Integrated Spectral Conversion Materials for Luminescent Solar Devices. Morton also presented a poster on this subject. Tom Parton, Elaine and Kieran presented posters on photoresponsive materials, … Continue reading Materials Chemistry 14, Birmingham, 8-11th July 2019
Congratulations to Tom Southern who won a poster prize at the MacroGroup UK Young Researcher’s meeting held at the University of Kent on 1st-2nd July (https://macrogroup.org.uk/2019/04/30/2019-young-researchers-meeting/). Tom’s poster described his work on a dual-template method to prepare hierarchically porous polymer films. Well done Tom!!
Congratulations to Dr Camille Blayo who became the 6th PhD student to graduate from the group and the last one to graduate from Trinity College Dublin. The sun was shining and Camille had a great day celebrating!
We welcome back Oliver Nelson-Dunnett who will spend some time with us over the summer continuing his work on energy transfer in microporous polymers (PIMs).
Rachel was Co-Chair (with Prof. Alberto Credi) of the inaugural UK-Italy Photochemistry meeting jointly hosted by the RSC Photophysics & Photochemistry Group (PPG) and the Gruppo Italiano di Fotochimica (GIF) (http://www.fotochimica.org). The meeting took place on the beautiful islands of Lipari, one of the Aeolian islands, and attracted over 80 participants. Rachel attended the meeting, … Continue reading UK-IT Photochemistry Meeting, Lipari (Italy), 24-26th June 2019
Congratulations to Kieran Richards who won second place in the Department’s postgraduate poster symposium. Well done Kieran! Kieran’s poster describes his work on the development of photoresponsive nanoparticles as Pickering emulsion stabilisers.
Congratulations to Oliver Nelson-Dunnett and Alex Zanre who carried out their Part III projects in the group – they both obtained First class honours in their final degrees! Well done both!
Rachel gave an invited talk at the CPE annual meeting in Imperial College London on the 10-11th June 2019 (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/191852/cpe-annual-symposium-2019/).
Tom Parton has one first prize in the Science in Innovation Unit (SIU) art in Science Oxford photo competition. Well done Tom! Legend: The intense colours seen in this micrograph are created by cellulose nanocrystals, tiny slivers of carbohydrate extracted from cotton. Each individual nanocrystal is only 200 nanometres long; too small to be seen … Continue reading Congratulations to Tom Parton – another image prize to add to the collection!
