On Wednesday 31st. October, we are holding a joint physical/organic chemistry seminar session at Leeds University. This is focussed on carbon capture and storage (CCS), and some of the more chemical aspects of CCS implementation, from CO2 reaction chemistry and utilisation, to the chemistry of amines in the atmosphere. We would also like to encourage people from other Departments and Universities to come along. To book please contact Chris Rayner.

The timetable is as follows:
