Viva and conference success

Many congratulations to Dr Veronica Del Angel Hernandez who passed her PhD viva last week. We wish her continued success in her postdoctoral research associate position within the Cooper Group at the University of Liverpool.

Further celebrations are in order for group members Neha Yadav and Basiram Narzary. Both are both recipients of prizes at last week’s GWPore conference for contributing with a talk on polymer formation using cyclic carbonates from CO2 and a poster discussing CO2 capture and conversion using microporous materials (see below), respectively.

Commonwealth Chemistry Posters submission

Great efforts by group member Basiram on his successful submission to this years’ 2nd Commonwealth Chemistry Posters exhibition. This is a virtual event that allows for collaboration, discussion and engagement with other chemists from across the Commonwealth working on problems that address Sustainable Development Goals.

Basiram’s poster covers his work on “Tuneable Naphthalene-Based Microporous Polyimide Networks for CO2 Capture and Conversion” and is a fantastic summary of his research. Available to view here.
