Chemistry Seminars - 2023

Researchers from the Discipline of Chemistry host regular seminars to showcase their work across applied projects in health, environment, energy technology and defence.

Academics and students from collaborative institutions are also invited to share their research and knowledge when visiting our school.

The seminars are open to the public, industry, researchers from other departments, schools and universities, and to current and past students.
