The symposium was attended by delegates from academia and from a wide range of companies that rely on the skills and dedication of organic chemists.
The exceptional entries were judged by Dr John Clough (Syngenta) and Professor David O'Hagan (University of St. Andrews). The prize winners were: Christopher Spicer (1st prize, University of Oxford), Malcolm Spain (Runner up Prize, University of Manchester) and Rebecca Maksymowicz (Runner up Prize, University of Oxford). The participant's prize was awarded to Vincent Gray (University College London). This year, for the first time, there was also an industry prize.
