Charl joined the ACS Fall meeting in Washington earlier this week. He spoke at two symposia – the “Metal-Containing and Metallo-Supramolecular Polymers and Materials” as well as the “Non-conventional Building Blocks in Conjugated Materials: Innovative Designs & New Applications”. It was great to meet friends, colleagues and collaborators from across the world at a great meeting!

Light-Triggered Soft Artificial Muscles!
Dicker’s paper on light-triggered soft artificial muscles just appeared online at Scientific Reports!
This collaborative effort, driven by Dicker, included input from chemistry, robotics and aerospace and composite engineering! See the open access full paper here!
Visitor from Beijing!
Rita Fan, who works in the University of Bristol’s China office (In Beijing), visited the School of Chemistry this week.
Horatio and Xiaoyu showed her around our facilities – with a stop for a photo-opportunity in the teaching labs (with Charl)! Rita enjoyed wearing a white lab coat for the first time!
Cake and bright colours!
Bella spent the week with the Faul Research Group as part of her work experience. It was great to have her, and we certainly enjoyed the fabulous cakes she brought to say thank you!
She also made some very colourful crystals, with some of the photos sure to turn up on the Faul Research Group website! Thanks Bella!
