It has been a busy week for MSc Materials Chemistry student, María Isabel Cabrera Amorin, as she has won two further awards to add to her rapidly growing list of accolades.
Chemistry in Focus (Sofia Bariami, Iain Prentice, Kyle Acheson, Johanna Rademacher, Angie Mat’usová, and Dr. Antonia Mey) are delighted to share their first video showcasing some of the exciting work being done by PhD students in the School of Chemistry.
Dr Adam Kirrander has been selected as a finalist in the Falling Walls Science Breakthroughs of the Year, which is part of the World Science Summit.
The summit, part of Berlin Science Week, brings together scientists from a range of disciplines. Falling Walls looks at major new research across ten different areas of science. Dr Kirrander's work examining the motion of atoms and molecules represents the physical sciences.
Chemistry in Focus is a student-led project, based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh and funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The project aims to popularise significant, milestone publications from PhD students within the School, and to give PhD students a platform to promote themselves and share their ground-breaking research with the general public.
Congratulations to a team from EaStCHEM and the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh for winning this year's Ekeberg Prize. They were awarded the prize for their research paper "Tantalum recycling by solvent extraction: chloride is better than fluoride", in the journal Metals.
