Leading physical chemists from the UK and abroad presented their research at the University as part of a recent awards ceremony.

The School of Chemistry hosted the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Faraday Division Awards Symposium, sponsored by the South East Wales Local Section of the RSC.

Guests had the opportunity to hear lectures from the three 2010 winners.

Angelos Micahelides, University College London, was awarded the Marlow medal for his innovative contributions in broad areas of surface and physical chemistry, and Robert Thomas, University of Oxford, was awarded the Surfaces and Interfaces Award.

The Centenary Prize went to Avelino Corma, University of Valencia, in recognition of his numerous novel contributions to the design, synthesis and applications of catalysts.

Professor Graham Hutchings, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and himself a previous recipient of the Surfaces and Interfaces Award, said: "It was a great pleasure to act as the host institution for this prestigious event. It was a fantastic opportunity for those who attended to hear some excellent science."
