The Secret Life of Fluorine
Think fluorine canít possibly have
anything to do with you?
If you cook, use a fridge, wear clothes, ever need an operation, or spray
your garden - or if youíre an
atomic scientist - then you might have come into contact with one of the
applications of fluorine.
The University of Leicester houses one of
the UKís foremost centres for excellence in green chemistry and at the BA
Festival of Science to be held at the University between 9-13 September 2002
experts from the Department of Chemistry and elsewhere will reveal some of the
wide-ranging secrets of fluorine.
Quality of life is this yearís theme
for the BA Festival, which is the UKís biggest science festival, held annually
at different universities throughout the country.
This yearís event will attract 400 top international scientists and
science communicators and reveal the latest developments in research.
A total of 3,000 delegates are expected
to attend the event at the University, as well as thousands of students of all
ages and members of the public interested in science.
The Festival returns to the
University of Leicester for the third time since 1921, during a year in which
the University is celebrating its 80th anniversary.
