Poster prize!

A School of Chemistry event was held to showcase the research from all early career researchers (M.Res., PhD and postdocs), with talks, a wine reception and posters!

Great news is that Veronica from our group won the poster prize! Congratulations Veronica! Here some photos of some other group members at their posters! Well done to all on a great effort, and thanks to Tom Oliver, Carmen Galan and Simon Hall for organising this event!

 

Visiting Xiaoyu Li at BIT

Charl had the pleasure to visit Xiaoyu, collaborator and co-author on our Nature Communications paper last year, at the Beijing Institute of Technology.

It was a great opportunity to catch up with Xiaoyu, listen to some talks from his students, and finally for Charl to give a research seminar as well. Hopefully there will be many such future interactions, and continued collaboration!

Invited Focus Review on electroactive amphiphiles accepted!

We just heard that your invited Focus Review for ChemNanoMat (part of a Special Issue on Supramolecular Nanostructures) has been accepted! In this Focus Review, which has already appeared online, we aim to highlight an exciting class of materials, electroactive amphiphiles (EAAs).

Well done to Esther, Maha, Kazu, Ben and close collaborator Annela Seddon (also Esther’s joint PhD supervisor)!  And special thanks to Kazu for the great frontispiece and graphics!

Visiting PKU!

Charl visited the College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering at Peking University in Beijing today. He visited old friends Prof Qi Limin, who also spent time at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Golm, and Prof Yun Yan, who was part of the same ESF scientific network.

After Charl’s talk there were some very interesting discussion with prof Huang Jianbin concerning the FRG’s recent paper in Chemical Science!
