Gorter Symposium and Gorter Lecture: David Britt (UC Davic, Department of Chemistry): 'Mechanisms of solar fuel reactions as probed by advanced EPR spectroscopy'



12:30 hrs


Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, Rapenburg 28, Leiden


On November 24, the 4th edition of the Gorter Symposium will be held at the "Rijksmuseum van Oudheden". The symposium, which is organized by the Gorter Foundation, has brought the different research groups on Magnetic Resonance from Leiden together for the last ten years. This year’s edition will highlight the latest achievements from the different disciplines and includes the Gorter Lecture by David Britt from UC Davis.

The program starts at 12:30 and is free of charge, but we do ask you to register by sending an e-mail to Rijsewijk [at]
