STEM OpenTalk

Chemists in their Elements

This event took place on 19th November 2019 at 6:00pm (18:00 GMT)
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

2019 is the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, one of the most significant achievements in science. To celebrate this, a group of chemists at the OU reveal their favourite element in the Periodic Table and explain why they like it so much.  “What is your favourite element?” may seem an easy question but it is hard to single out only one. Each element has its own distinctive properties and it’s amazing in its own way.  This talk will contain some awesome chemistry of metals and non-metals.
