Congratulations to Professors Steed and Verlet who have both won prestigious RSC Prizes. Both are major or flagship awards from the RSC, well done to both Jan and Jon for their achievements. Please check out the links for a Q+A with both Jon and Jan. For example, did you know Jon’s favourite element is ruthenium and that Jan’s is hydrogen!
