In October Polly and Mark travelled to Shanghai to attend a conference on Organic Free Radicals. This was held at the Shanghai Institute for Organic Chemistry
The week long conference had a wide range of interesting talks given by academics from around the world, including Prof John Murphy from Strathclyde, that showed the depth and versatility in free radical chemistry.
In addition to the talks there was a poster session in which another Strathclyde student in the Murphy group, Joshua Barham, won a prize for his poster. Polly and Mark also presented posters during this session.
There was also plenty of opportunity to explore the city of Shanghai and experience the Chinese culture.
