Matthew Renshaw has won the oral presentation prize at the Royal Society of Chemistry's (RSC) Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Discussion Group (NMRDG) Postgraduate Meeting. The prize was awarded jointly to Matthew for his paper entitled, Operando MR: Fixed-bed heterogeneous catalysis at elevated temperature and pressure and Nicholle Bell from the University of Edinburgh for “Separation” by NMR: 3D and 4D NMR experiments for complex mixtures.
The meeting was held on Thursday 20th June 2013 at the Department of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh. It is held annually (and is currently in its 6th year) as a chance for young and early career researchers to present their research via oral and poster presentations in an informal setting with leading academics in the field also present to give feedback and encouragement.
The prize was sponsored by Goss Scientific Instruments Ltd and on the back of the prize, Matthew has been invited to give a talk at the main NMRDG Christmas meeting held at the Institute of Child Health, London on 17th December 2013 which sees eminent leaders in the field of NMR give talks on their research and recent developments in the field.
