James Fleming won an award for his poster entitled ‘Chiral Magnetic Nanoparticles as Sustainable Asymmetric Catalysts’ which describes the work done during his Vacation Scholarship.

We recently made a contribution to the very exciting work of our collaborator Prof John Protasiewicz from Case Western University  who is investigating the interesting optoelectronic properties of naphthoxaphospholes.
