Many congrats to Richard for winning the poster prize at the postgraduate conference of the School of Chemistry. Richard presented his research on controlling the mechanical reactivity of Diels-Alder adducts.
We had the great pleasure to host Rint in Manchester on Tuesday 29th of May. Rint gave an amazing talk on Molecular scale probing of mechanical damage in polymeric materials’. We're looking forward to his next visit!
The inevitable Periodic pic!
At Christie's with Dr Alex Pulis
MChem students Sam and Lewis, and Erasmus students Simon and Sharon have now finished their projects and left the lab. We wish them the best of luck for the upcoming exam period and all their future projects.
The group first paper published in JACS is now Open Access! Check it here.
Sharon and Simon join us from the University of Louvain (Guillaume's Alma Mater) for a 3-month Erasmus placement. Welcome to both!
We are please to welcome our first postdocs: Dr Rafael Sandoval Torrientes and Dr Min Zhang. Min is joining us from Shanghai as a Newton International Fellow and Rafa is coming from Madrid to work on a Wellcome Trust funded project. Welcome to both!
Our first review has been published. We cover the emerging field of the mechanochemistry of the mechanical bond.
