Chemistry Lab Dinner 2015
22 November 2015, 4:30 pm–10:45 pm
The dinner took place on Friday 20th November 2015 and was attended by 87 guests.
Due to on-going refurbishments to UCL Campus, the dinner was hosted by the Ambassor Hotel on Upper Woburn Place just a short walk from the department.
The RSC Thomas Graham Lecture was given by the departments' very own Professor Julian Evans entitled “Forever blowing bubbles”: the preparations for an ocean mirror". Julian outline the strategies for climate remediation by increasing planetary albedo and then focus on the UCL proposal to cover a few percent of ocean surface with persistent foam, preferably derived from ingenerate resources. This example illustrated the broader problems of how chemistry can be integrated with materials processing and how materials can benefit from biomass resources.
