CDT Winter Showcase 2024

20 Feb 2024

The CDT in Sustainable Chemistry held its annual Winter Showcase event on 5-6 February 2024, this was a fantastic opportunity for the students to give lectures, poster presentations and discuss their research.

The event, which took place over two days at East Midlands Conference Centre on University Park, attracted an audience of over 135 students, researchers, academics and industrial partners.  The Centre was also very pleased to welcome the students from its partner institution - University College Dublin

The event was a jam packed 2 days which included 17 talks by final year CDT and UCD students, a very lively poster session involving 31 posters by the CDT second- and third-year students from both the CDT in Sustainable Chemistry and students based at University College Dublin.

In addition, the event hosted three lectures including:

  • Continuous flow chemistry - from improving known reactions to the discovery of new reactivity - Marcus Baumann, University College Dublin, Ireland
  • Sustainable Production of Critical Raw Materials - Orla Williams, University of Nottingham
  • Let's Go Green: Intensifying Sustainable Electrochemical Reactions - Kevin Leonard, University of Kansas, USA

We would like to congratulate all Best Talk and Best Poster Prize Winners!
