Main Group Seminar Series

We’re a free-to-access, online seminar series that hosts a seminar once a fortnight. Each seminar features two speakers – one early-career and one more established scientist.

This seminar series aims to showcase the best main–group chemistry happening around the world, with both experienced and early-career scientists presenting. In particular, we hope to reach chemists working outside our field.

4pm GMT+1, Wednesday 17th June

Our programme is curated by Dr Michael Cowley at (or, for the moment, not at) the University of Edinburgh, together with funding and substantial help from the Royal Society of Chemistry Main Group Chemistry Interest Group.

If you have a talk to give, get in touch.

All you need to present is a laptop, a microphone, and a lecture.
