Chemistry celebrates Nobel Prize centenary
9 October 2003
UCL's Department of Chemistry is hosting a lecture to mark the centenary of Sir William Ramsay's receipt of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.
The lecture Ramsay Nobel Prize Centenary Celebration: Lighting up NMR and MRI Using 'Nobel' Gases', will be held at 5pm on 28 October 2003 in the Chemistry Auditorium, with Professor Alex Pines (Berkeley, California) as the lead speaker.
Dr Andrea Sella (Chemistry), who is co-organising the event, said: "Professor Pines is an astonishingly good speaker who has developed highly imaginative techniques involving xenon NMR spectroscopy to probe biological systems." Dr Sella and departmental colleague Professor Alwyn Davies will start the proceedings with a brief biography of Ramsay and his work, making use of artefacts held at UCL.
