Congrats to Annie on finishing 12 months of hard work and completing your MRes!! Good luck with the PhD at Strathclyde!!

Meeting the local MP!

Jenni was invited to meet the local MP Ian Murray to discuss our research, along with opportunities to tackle plastic pollution. Ian also filed an early day parliamentary motion on our research, which you can see here!

Time for a special publication

Jenni's recent paper 'Heterodinuclear zinc and magnesium catalysts for epoxide/CO2 ring opening copolymerizations' published in Chemical Science has now been included as part of a special collection! Chemical Science welcomed Professor Serena DeBeer to the journal as an Associate Editor at the end of 2018, handling papers in the areas of (bio)inorganic chemistry, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and spectroscopy. Serena has looked back over Chemical Science papers published over the past couple of years and has selected some outstanding articles in this area of research. We hope you find them of interest too! Find the collection here!
