The European Polymer Federation Congress @EPF2022 soon to start in beautiful sunny Prague. Thank you very much for inviting me. Having a pre-conference walk through the old town with #legendsofpolychem Nikos Hadjichristidis @QUT @QUTmaterials @KITKarlsruhe


We have had a close look at the photochemistry of dimethyl dialdehydes, an important functionality for light induced material design https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.joc.2c01020 Outstanding work @FlorianFeist1 @Cluster3DMM2O @KITKarlsruhe @QUT @QUTmaterials
