Summer Activities – A Belated Update

It appears the dog days of summer in St Andrews (!!) have had a negative impact on the pace of website updates.

In late June, we were very happy to welcome James Findlay from the Crowley group at University of Otago to the lab for two weeks. Working with Nicolas, James brought some of the Crowley group’s cool ferrocene-based molecular switches to the lab. We hope to tell you about some exciting results soon!

It was also great to host James’s supervisor – and Euan’s ex-colleague from Edinburgh days – James (yes it was confusing) for a couple of days. James (Crowley) gave a great lecture and found some time to re-acquaint himself with some fine Scottish produce.

Enjoying a few beers with James and James.

Euan was very pleased to give a talk at Steve Goldup and Jon Kitchen’s Supramolecular Syposiusm (unofficially #GoldupSupra) in Southampton in July.

It was a great day of mostly unpublished science, meeting up with old friends, and making some new ones…see here for the full line-up.

Thanks Steve and Jon for the great day…and the photo.

Welcome Marek and Virginie

This month we welcome two visitors to the group; coming to enjoy summer in sunny St Andrews.

Marek Kaminski is from Warsaw, Poland. He graduated with a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Warsaw in 2014, and is currently a MSc student at the same institution.

Virginie Viseur joins us from the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Lille, France, where she is an undergraduate.

Welcome both!
