Charl at the ACS meeting

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!

Saying goodbye to Ben!

We hope that it is rather “auf Wiedersehen” rather than goodbye!  Ben‘s time in the FRG is coming to an end, and we celebrated, true to group character, with food! We all headed down to the harbour side and enjoy pizza (and pies!)!

Great way to say thank you to Ben for all his efforts over the last 5 years! Enjoy the well-deserved break!

Mini symposium with Florian von Wrochem, Sony

We had the pleasure to host Dr Florian von Wrochem from Sony’s Materials Laboratories (Stuttgart, Germany).  It was a great opportunity to put together an exciting symposium, with former FRG member Dr James Thomas (funded by the BCFN, and now a post-doc in Oxford) as well as Liam speaking.
