CHT401 Recent Advances in Homogeneous Coordination Chemistry
                This course is focused on Ligand design and coordination chemistry                 of the main group elements and their applications in homogenous                 catalysis. This course is aimed at the Masters level covering the 
                most recent literature results.

To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl, Cardiff University's School of Chemistry recreated how George's Marvellous Medicine might have looked based on descriptions in the book. Featuring Dr David Willock, Dr Rebecca Melen and Dr Angelo Amoroso.
