UK chemist light ups the stage and RNZ's studio!

From Nine To Noon, 10:08 am on 6 July 2015

Peter Wothers

Dr Peter Wothers is bringing chemistry to life in a series of demonstration lectures and public talks across New Zealand. Audiences are getting the chance to learn about the chemistry of two items they use daily: lighting, including the glow from smart phones, and shampoo.

Dr Peter Wothers is being brought here by the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry as part of the International Year of Light celebrations, in partnership with the Royal Society of New Zealand, Massey University, Victoria University of Wellington, the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, and the UK's Royal Society of Chemistry.
