New Royal Society international project – with Jilin University!

Success! A Royal Society International exchange project, with funding for exchange of staff and students over two years between the research group of prof Kun Liu at the State Key Laboratory for Supramolecular Structure and Materials, College of Chemistry, Jilin University, Changchun, China, and the Faul Research Group.

This is an exciting addition to the long-standing interaction and growing collaborative efforts between the Faul Research Group and the State Key Laboratory, and fits perfectly with new undergraduate initiatives between the School of Chemistry at Bristol and the College of Chemistry at Jilin (including a new 2+2 joint degree, and a summer school for advanced undergraduate students).

Porous Materials mini symposium – with Pan as speaker!

We recently hosted an early career mini symposium, with Elvia Valadez-Sanchez (Karlsruhe), Harina Hamzah (Ting Group, Engineering) and our own Pan! Thank you to all involved for an exciting morning of science!

Here Charl, Pan, Elvia, Harina, Valeska and Pierangelo Gobbo (symposium organiser). Great talk by Pan – well done!

 

Prize for Grace!

Grace, who did her final year research project in the FRG, won one of two prizes for the best “materials” talk last week – what a great way to mark the end of all UG research projects!

Here Grace (on the right) is with Prof Emma Raven, Head of the School of Chemistry, and other prize winner Hannah Taylor.
And, finally, a photo of Charl, Grace, Matt and Sam at the wine reception at the end of the presentation day – well done all!
