The development will transform the derelict post office sorting building and part of Arena Island into an open campus that will be part of the community, help to regenerate the area and benefit the whole city.
The UoB is working with communities, businesses and the council to shape future plans, which include landmark buildings for teaching, learning and collaboration, with a focus on future digital technologies. Part of the development includes a new student village and expanding the UoB’s successful enterprise hub, Engine Shed.
Charl contributed to an invited feature article on supramolecular polymers with Prof Xi Zhang and his group members. The article was just accepted for publication Macromolecular Rapid Communications – more details to follow soon.
Our friend and colleague, Dr Patrice Rannou, based in Grenoble, France, has a PhD position available for an exciting new project in the area of polymer synthesis for photovoltaics and energy storage – “Functional Block CoPolymers (FunBCPs): Encoding Performances in Smart Active Layers for next generation Battery and Solar Cells“
This project, within the in the Laboratory for Innovation in new Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials (CEA-LITEN) in Grenoble, France, is a collaborative effort with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in polymer or synthetic organic chemistry. Please see the details of the project here or here, or contact Dr Rannou directly for further information.
Alex, Kazu and Charl contributed a chapter to an RSC book on supramolecular amphiphiles, edited by our collaborator and colleague, Prof Xi Zhang from the Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. The book, with a chapter from Bristol focusing on the use of electrostatic interactions for the formation of supra-amphiphiles, has just been published!
Great to have had the chance to contribute to this exciting book in the RSC’s Monographs in Supramolecular Chemistry series!
Charl visited the Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto, on Monday. He was hosted by Professor Dwight Seferos, and had the chance to meet a number of faculty and researchers during the day – discussing lots of very exciting science!
Various member of the Faul Research group were in Canada in the past week. Charlie, Liam and Horatio at the Canadian Society for Chemistry’s Conference, and Esther, Betty, Christian and Charl at the University of Waterloo’s Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology.
Charl will also be visiting the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto, hosted by Prof. Dwight Seferos – more details to follow.
