Newton grant aids to develop new collaborations in Thailand

Posted on 19 December 2016

Developing a potential collaboration with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA).

Dr Duncan Macquarrie and Dr Andrew Hunt from Green Chemistry recently met with Dr Nontipa Supanchaiyamat and Associate Professor Sittipong Amnuaypanich at Khon Kaen University (KKU) as part of a Royal Society Newton Mobility grant between KKU and Green Chemistry. During the visit, Dr Macquarrie and Dr Hunt also gave a set of talks at Nanotec, part of the NSTDA of Thailand.

The visit was extremely positive. The NSTDA have incredible facilities and programmes with significant potential for working with the Department of Chemistry in the future.
