Attempts to create element 120 raise the issue of the so-called “island of stability”.

Professor Martyn Poliakoff discusses.

It’s our Einsteinaversary!

Today is the anniversary of when Albert Einstein delivered a lecture at Nottingham University College (aka The University of Nottingham) in 1930. 

He used a blackboard and we kept it! It lives in the School of Physics and Astronomy, kept behind a glass screen. 

Watch Prof Poliakoff from our School of Chemistry take a visit to the blackboard in this video from 2009.
