The 2015 Rideal conference was organised by Profs HJ Freund and Martyn Twigg in Harnack House, Berlin. The conference started with a moving session honouring the late Prof. M. Wyn Roberts, a distinguished surface scientist and the man who first suggested holding the 2015 Rideal meeting in Berlin. Phil’s presentation at the meeting analysing Wyn’s last paper can be seen below:

Fantastic week in London at the beginning of July to present an exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science festival. 15 thousand visitors in 7 days and 6000 After Eight Mints to give away. We talked to loads of fascinating people about gold catalysis.
