Recent Research: Chemistry at Newcastle University FREE

Yvonne Choo is a final year PhD student. In her session, she will be talking about the making of cling-film-like polymer membranes that could potentially be used as an alternative to Nafion in water splitting devices. The device's performance depends on the membrane and its components, hence, the development of new membranes would help make the device more efficient, bringing our dream of a greener future one step closer to reality.

Samantha Lunn has completed her undergraduate Masters and is now a final year PhD student in Chemistry at Newcastle University. DNA-based nanotechnology is of increasing interest due to the potential applications in biosensing, templating of metal ions for increased conductivity and nano electronic circuits. She will be talking about her research into interfacing DNA with surfaces for DNA duplex healing, electronic and sensing applications. She will also talk about her collaboration and research into the charge transport through DNA monolayers at NUS Singapore.

This  lecture is in conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry.
