Students and postdocs from the Durrant group (Chemistry) took part in the Grantham Institutes 10th anniversary celebrations on 28 February 2018.

Continuing with the 10 year anniversary celebrations of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change, the Grantham Annual lecture was presented at the end of last month by an important invited speaker: HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. His Serene Highness gave an interesting talk focused on mitigating the effects of climate change, with particular emphasis on the fragility and importance of our oceans.

Members of the Durrant group presented a range of flexible organic photovoltaics, demonstrating the important niche that such materials can fill in meeting energy demands in creative ways. They also displayed a conceptual H2-powered remote-control car to highlight the importance of ongoing research in solar fuel technology to enable efficient energy storage and alternative fuel sources.
