University of Warwick Chemistry Professor Pat Unwin has been awarded one of the most important awards in the field of Chemistry – a silver Corday-Morgan medal from the Royal Society of Chemistry which comes with a £500 prize.
The award recognises his research into “physiochemical” processes at interfaces, where liquids meet other liquids, gases or solids. Some of the applications of his work include new understandings as to the performance of human cartilage, transport processes in biological membranes, and a better understanding of how crystals and biominerals grow and dissolve at the molecular level.
