Medal to be awarded at chemistry symposium

One of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s most prestigious medals will be presented at a special symposium on the applications of voltammetry in electrochemistry taking place at the University of Bath today.

The first lecture of the day-long symposium will mark the award of the Tilden Medal, presented annually to three of the younger members of the Society.

The medal was founded in 1939 in memory of Sir William Augustus Tilden, President of the Society from 1903 to 1905.

This year’s winner is Professor Richard Compton from the University of Oxford, for his innovative, quantitative investigations of the kinetics and mechanisms of reactions at solid and liquid interfaces.

A silver medal and cheque for £500 will be presented to Professor Compton, whose lecture will take place at 10.30 in lecture theatre in 3WN 2.1.

The symposium includes an international line up of speakers covering a range of aspects associated with the science of analyzing chemical mixtures using potential-dependent current measurements.
