Chemistry: Contemporary Chemistry to Tackle 21st Century Challenges
New

Tue 3 Mar, Tue 10 Mar, ... Tue 26 May 2020
CANCELLED

Description

Chemistry plays a very crucial role in tackling 21st century global challenges. From climate change mitigation to discovering therapeutic strategies for human health and driving sustainable energy production and usage - we are faced with many challenges for which chemical sciences has been providing and will continue to provide many plausible solutions.

Much of the research involved in developing these initiatives requires a huge drive towards interdisciplinary research networks. As such, this course has been developed with some of our colleagues from across the Chemistry Department who are working on exciting and emerging areas with this multidisciplinary focus.

This 10 session course will introduce how chemistry can be used as a tool to solve these challenges. First session will include the introduction. Each lecture following this will focus on a different branch, area or concept of chemistry covering the fundamental chemistry and background of how it works, any advances to date and the applications towards tackling these global challenges.

The first session is compulsory, plus choose optional sessions you wish to attend when you make your booking.

Session 1: Introduction

Session 2: Organic Electronics

Session 3: Electrochemistry (Batteries)

Session 4: Mechanochemistry (Mill-Grinding)

Session 5: Antibody Design

Session 6: Supramolecular Materials

Session 7: Air Quality Sensing

Session 8: Photochemistry
