Periodic Table Talk – the beginnings of the Periodic Table

Come to Trinity College to hear from renowned chemist, popular textbook author, and the third speaker of the IYPT Symposium – Dr Peter Wothers MBE ! Known for his outreach efforts in promoting chemistry to young students and members of the public, as well as his joint publications of Organic Chemistry, Chemical Structure and Reactivity, and Why Chemical Reactions Happen, Dr Wothers is currently a teaching fellow at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge. Dr Wothers’ personal interest in the history of chemistry has led to a great collection of antique science books, which he displayed at an IYPT exhibition last March.

TCSS and ChemSoc have come together, on occasion of the IUPAC International Year of Periodic Table of Chemical Elements 2019, to bring you this talk as part of the larger IYPT Celebration Symposium. It will take place in the Old Combination Room, starting at 15:00. The talk has free entry, and refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there!
