MSc Isabella Norrbo defends her docotoral thesis “Synthetic hackmanites and their optical properties – from theory to applications” on Friday 17th of May at 12 o’clock ARC1 auditorium. Adj. Prof. Mika Lastusaari will act as a custos and the opponent will be Prof. Mark T. Weller from Cardiff University.
The Kemian kevät seminars for BSc and MSc students are held in Arcanum lecture hall Arc1 on 24.-26.4.2019. Most of the presentations are in Finnish, international student present their work on Thursday afternoon 13.35-14.15.
You can hear inorganic material chemistry talks on Thursday 25.4. from 9.45 onwards first with six BSc thesis presentations from Teppo, Veera, Herkko, Matti, Otto and Roosa followed by one MSc presentation from Sami. The topics range from luminescent particles and LEDs to metal-organic complexes and reversible photochromism. In Thursday afternoon at 13.35 you can also hear a presentation from Qingan about transition metal catalyzed coupling.
MSc Emilia Palo successfully defended her thesis “Modifying upconverting nanoparticles with polyelectrolyte multilayers” on Friday April 12th.

University of Turku was well represented in the Chembio 2019 event in Helsinki 27.-28.3.2019. Isabella Norrbo from our group and Maarit Karonen from NCRG presented their research in Materials in Nature seminar by FinTAC ry. In addition, Marica Engström from NCRG presented her research in the session by the chromatography society of Finland.
Great job from all of you!

Isabella is presenting our research on hackmanites with the topic of “Hackmanite minerals for detecting radiation” at 12:10 in hall 3d. The talk is part of the FinTAC ry session “Materials in nature – thermoanalytical aspects”.
During the months of November and December we have had the privilege to host students for their Bachelor of Science laboratory work. We hope you have enjoyed the laboratory work and its ups and downs and continue with us further in your studies. There is lots of interesting research ahead!
