2nd Annual Poster Session for 4th-year Chemistry B.Sc
4th-year chemists had the opportunity to show off their scientific and design skills in the annual “Poster Session” on 19th December 2001. The event was held in the Aula Maxima and was accompanied by the type of refreshment that chemists otherwise term ethanol and carbohydrate.
Once again both the chemical compounds and the cash prizes for the two best Posters were sponsored by the International Company, , the company that creates and delivers innovative medicines. So many thanks to them!!
As in 2000, when the inaugural session was held, both Departmental academic staff and the external judges (Dr Humphrey Moynihan and Dr. Erik Chelius) were highly impressed with the standards in all three themes: Synthesis& Mechanism, Materials & Structure and Environmental & Analytical.
Brian Daly and Michael O’Dwyer won prizes for best posters with
the entries: “Atmospheric Chemistry of Aromatic Aldehydes” and “Environmental
Chamber Studies of Dimethylphenols” and were able to buy lots of Christmas gifts
(socks, CDs and aftershave mainly) last month.
So, if you are a current 3rd-year chemist, get ready for December 2002 when you will be a part of sights like those shown in the accompanying photographs.
