Event details

This meeting will honour two great scientists, Davy and Weyl, on the 150th anniversary of the first published work on the nature of stable, bound or solvated electrons formed of solutions of alkali metals in liquid ammonia. Modern views of electron solvation in liquids will be discussed, alongside the related processes of electron transfer and electronic conduction; three phenomena of fundamental importance  to many aspects of the biological and physical sciences.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers will be made available shortly.
