Report on RSC Downland Local Section awards evening Monday 13 May 2019 at the University of Brighton
The Downland Local Section was pleased to present a number of awards to chemists who have been members of the RSC for 40 years.
The evening began with a buffet and networking session for the participants who included the awardees, members of the Local Section and of the Downland Committee, and students.
This was followed by a most entertaining lecture by Gordon Woods FRSC which was particularly appropriate in this International Year of the Periodic Table. For many years Gordon has been interested in the history of the Periodic table, in ways it has been recognised in various countries around the world, and in the many and varied representations used to exemplify periodicity, the groups, periods and electronic shells. His lecture encompassed all of these in a most entertaining way.
The lecture was followed by presentation of the awards by Gordon.
Gordon Woods has indicated he would be happy to repeat his lecture for other groups within the RSC subject to availability and ease of transport. Please contact our secretary if you are interested.
