Natrajan Group: LILA Lab visit

Dr Kathryn George (a PDRA in the group of Louise Natrajan) is currently spending six weeks in the specialised high activity radiation equipped LILA labs of the CEA (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique et aux energies alternatives) Marcoule in the south of France with Phillipe Guilbaud, Marie-Christine Charbonnel and Christelle Tamain. 

During her stay Kathryn will be examining the coordination and redox chemistry of oxygen donor ligands with plutonium; studies which are crucial to understanding the speciation of plutonium in nuclear waste reprocessing and management. Kathryn's placement is funded by the EU FP7 funded TALISMAN network (Transnational Access to Large Infrastructure for a Safe Management of ActiNide).
