From sniffing out Parkinsons to the manipulation of the building blocks for the world’s quickest computer, the School of Chemistry is demystifying some of its recent achievements by making them more accessible to audiences beyond academia and the University.
The School of Chemistry has unveiled a plaque awarded by the History Division of the American Chemical Society to celebrate seminal work by Sir Edward Frankland FRS that established the theory of chemical valence in 1852.
Dr Cinzia Casiraghi, Reader in Carbon Nanostrucutures in the School of Chemistry, together with Dr Dr Antonios Oikonomou, of the National Graphene Institute, have been shortlisted in the Royal Society of Chemistry Emerging Technologies Competition 2016.
