RACI Awards

Congratulations to Ben Spyrou (Donnelly group) and Martin van Koeverden (Abrahams group) who were both shortlisted for the prestigious Don Stranks Award.

The Don Stranks Awards were part of the RACI Inorganic Division Conference (IC19) held on the 15 to 19 December 2019 at the University of Wollongong. Martin attended the conference using a T. W. Healy scholarship and went onto win one of two equally ranked Don Stranks Awards for his talk and poster entitled “Semiconductivity and Spontaneous Magnetisation in a Mixed-Valence Iron(III)-Chloranilate Framework”.

This is the fourth consecutive win of a Don Stranks Award by a student from the School of Chemistry, University of Melbourne.
