On Monday, 2nd July, 2001, the Department of Chemical Engineering held its annual Research Open Day.
The Open Day this year was based on a theme of Reactions and Catalysis. The programme involved a mixture of internal and external speakers together with informal periods where delegates could talk to members of staff, visit the laboratories and talk to research students.
This year's event also featured the inauguration of a distinguished lecture - the Professor J. F. Davidson Annual Lecture. The lecture was given by Professor Lynn F Gladden OBE on Magnetic resonance flow visualisation and its relevance to reaction engineering . Professor Gladden heads the Catalysis and Magnetic Resonance Group
