Lab Dinner 2008

The annual Lab Dinner was held on Friday 28th November, 2008. As always this was preceded by a lecture and a chance to see the new facilities in the Department.

This year the dinner included celebrations to remember Sir Christopher Ingold, a pioneer of mechanistic analysis in organic chemistry, in whose memory a Royal Society of Chemistry Chemical Landmark Plaque was unveiled. Professor John Ridd, one of Professor Ingold's students gave a talk on the life and works of Sir Christopher Ingold in the Ramsay Lecture Theatre.

The formal dinner itself, which was held in the Old Refectory , was preceded by drinks which included a toast to the Department by Professor John Mann, Queen's University Belfast.
