SCI Fire and Materials Group Research Seminar: Bromine Flame Retardants – Life Savers or Eco Villains?

University of Strathclyde and The Glasgow City Hotel

The Seminar is an opportunity for researchers, new post docs and PhD students to share their research in Fire Materials with others from industry and academia. Visiting industrial speakers will discuss both sides of the argument for and against brominated flame retardants. Bringing together young researchers and industrial representatives, this event will enable them to network and ask questions of each other. The event will start on 4 November with an optional tour of the laboratories in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde. The following day we will move to the Glasgow City Hotel (formerly the Thistle) for the seminar. To view the full timed programme, please visit
