Frank, a professor of organic materials and nanosystems at the University of Würzburg, Germany, visited Bristol on 4th March to present his exciting work on perylene diimide materials and their supramolecular assembly.
His lecture was preceded by a series of excellent talks by Bristol postgraduate researchers on topics from nanoparticle assembly at interfaces to the monitoring of micellular growth using the latest fluorescent techniques!
Charl spent the day at the Department of Chemistry at Monash, where he gave a talk and interacted with a number of colleagues, including Dr Rico Tabor!
He also had the chance to have a look at their brand-new and very impressive chemistry building on campus! Great day in very summery Melbourne!
Charl was invited to speak at the Australasian Colloid and Interface Society’s Biennial symposium in Hobart, Tasmania! He spoke about some of the work from the FRG in the area of electroactive materials.
It has been a great meeting so far and a good chance to meet up with some old friends (like Dr Rico Tabor, now from Monash University)! And all of this taking place in a wonderful setting!
