Neil Robinson has recently been awarded the best poster price at the Faraday Discussion in London. The conference was called Designing New Heterogeneous Catalysts and took place at the Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, London, from 3rd-6th April 2016.
It was a major event in Heterogeneous Catalysis featuring renowned speakers in the field.
Neil's work is focused on combining NMR relaxation methods with Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations in order to improve the understanding of how catalytic surfaces behave. He is a post graduate student, supervised by Dr Carmine D'Agostino.
There were two poster sessions, each with 47 posters, and one prize for each session. Neil was awarded the poster prize for the Tuesday session. These prizes were awarded at the conference dinner which took place at the Royal Society.
