Chinwe has created microstructures that resemble golf balls from a tetra(aniline)-based material.
Last Wednesday, Bristol Chemistry held the first in a series of Materials Chemistry symposiums. The afternoon featured two external speakers (Sharon Cooper, Durham and Andrew Houlton, Newcastle) and five post-graduate researchers from the School of Chemistry including Tom. The talks were all of an extremely high standard and stimulated a lot of scientific discussion!
Charl also had the pleasure to meet Jiangtao, who spent a year in Bristol, during the CCS meeting. They went for a traditional Sichuan-style hot pot meal – very hot indeed!
Charl attended the Chinese Chemical Society’s meeting in Chengdu, Sichuan province, China from the 13-16th of April. He had the chance to visit the local panda park close to Chengdu with colleagues. Here he is with Dr. Jose Oliviera, the Editor-in-Chief for the journal “Small”, in front of a very lazy panda!
