Charl in Beijing

Charl is back in Beijing to teach at the Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University.  It is, as always, a pleasure to see old friends and enjoy excellent food … and, in addition, enjoy sunny weather and blue skies!

Welcome Juvaid!

Talks, talks, talks …

Last week was a busy week, with talks from our undergraduate project students Rachel, Steffan and Nick (and a celebration lunch in Cosmo afterwards!).

In addition, Prof. Julius Vancso (Twente University, the Netherlands) also visited the School of Chemistry.  Peter from the FRG gave a great talk as part of the preceding mini-symposium before Prof Vancso’s fascinating talk!

Well done to all from the FRG!
