07.01.08 minutes

Minutes

Attended by: Dan, Noor, Becky, Colette, Craig and Eleanor

Points covered:
- Heajin has definitely left the University and Becky is fine to take over the whole of the 'Electrochromism' section.
- Becky has decided to condense her section to allow more time for the 'Introduction' section. The whole presentation should, in theory, last 15 minutes.
- It was decided everyone would email Eleanor their section of the presentation so she could group them together in one place and change the backgrounds of each to a generic one.

- The order of the presentation was decided as follows:
Noor - INTRODUCTION
Eleanor & Craig - THERMOCHROMISM
Becky - ELECTROCHROMISM
Dan and Colette - PHOTOCHROMISM
Question Time?

- Dan to email ST to see if he would like to see our practice run at 11.30 on Thursday

07.12.07 meeting

~ Dan was not present, attending a tutorial.
~ Everyone presented their preliminary slides to the gropup to see how the presentation was taking shape.
~ Noor (introduction) had an introduction to all smart materials specifying that we would be concentrating on chomism. had an order of presentation. nearly ready 2 present, quite long.
~ Eleanor and Craig (thermo) had some slides ready. still in process of making slides and deciding what to say. had both applications and chemistry.
~ Colette (photo) quite long. good slides, lots of chemistry which can be explained to a-level students. good applications.
~ Heajin and Becky (electro) slides are nearly ready, working on talk. quite long. mostly applications, some chemistry.

~ We must make sure that the presentaion is not too long.
~ Everyone will; email Noor their slides so he can add media to them.
~ Over christmas everyone needs to stay in contact and work out what they are going to say. If everyone keeps themselves to 2 mins masx then the presentation will be the correct length.

30.11.07 – minutes of meeting

Friday 30th nov, 10am.

Noor and Heajin not present.

Some of the types of chromism we were trying to research had either very little information or very complex and in depth information that was hard to understand let alone break down to alevel standard.

Therefore it was decided to concentrate on five main areas
1. thermochromism (researched by Eleanor and Craig)
2. photochroimism (researched by Colette and Dan)
3. electrochromism (researched by Heajin and Becky)
4. LCD displays (researched by everyone)
5. title page, flow chart and media (researched by Noor)

We decided that this would be a better approach as there is lots of relevant interesting understandable information on these topics.

We have therefore decided to propose a change of title to Scott Turner,
"The Chem istry and Applications of Chromism within Smart Materials"
Dan will email Scott Turner about this.

We are going to haver a meeting next friday (7th december) 10-11am on the science concourse (room being booked by Eleanor) in which to go over everything in some detail before the Christmas holidays. can EVERYONE please make every effort to attend.

by next friday everyone needs to have completed the following tasks.

NOOR - made a title page and flowchart of how the presentation will flow (ie what will; be covered in what order, from list above)

COLETTE - worked with dan to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about photochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's

DAN - worked with colette to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about photochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's. Emailed Scott Turner about title changes

HEAJIN - worked with becky to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about electrochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's

BECKY - worked with heajin to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about electrochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's

ELEANOR - worked with craig to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about thermochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's. Booked room for meeting.

CRAIG - worked with elearnor to come up with a 3-4 minute mini presentation about thermochriomism which will have a backbone on power point and some preliminary ideas on what is going to be said and some information on LCD's

On friday we want to be able to start to put the whole presentation together so that we can fine tune it over the holidays ready to start practice presentations early next term.

meeting on 23/11/07 – individual work for the presentation

From the meeting on 23/11/07 (Friday), individual work decided;

Dan: Halochromism
Colette: Photochromism
Craig: Mechanochromism
Backy: Ionochromism
Heajin: Electrochromism
Noor: Media images/videos/audios on each aspect of chromism + the introductory page discussing Smart Materials, specifically chromism
Eleanor: Thermochromism

Each person unless otherwise spcified needs to create a 2 minute presentation which covers their type of chromism in depth and applications in everyday life which use it.

Additionally, everyone needs to do some research on LCDs as it is thought that its a good idea to discuss this particular application of chromism in more detail.

We provisionally agreed that our next meeting would be Tuesday 3-4pm before our Co-ordination Chemistry Examples Class. However, is it worth meeting on Friday instead before Spec Labs by which point we will have all had time to get it done.

16/11/07 |RESEARCH MEETING| Minutes


~ Colette, Craig, Heajin and Noor met outside The Main Library at 11am; were joined later on 2nd floor by Eleanor and Dan.

~ Colette went up to 3rd floor to search the library catalogue whilst Craig, Heajin and Noor stayed on 2nd to find and read journal articles. There were some useful finds in the Chemistry World and The Chemistry of Materials. Noor had also brought some useful information found online.

~ It was proving difficult to find books on chromic materials so Colette + Heajin tried searching journal titles based on the ones we were already aware of, which gave some useful results.

~ Dan, Craig, Eleanor and Noor found useful articles in few journals including New Scientist. Suggestion was made that LCD technology and chromics in gadgets would be good to include in the presentation, which all agreed was a good idea.

~ Colette and Heajin agreed on suggesting to the rest of the group that we take a journal each and search for relevant and recent articles on optical/ chromic materials, as it did not seem very productive going through issue after issue of every available journal. Colette noted down journal names and Heajin suggested this to Dan, Craig, Eleanor and Noor, who agreed on the plan. Here are the journals each person is finding articles in for Thursday next week (22/11):

[Becky] Smart Materials Bulletin
[Colette] Chemistry of Materials (ASC)
[Craig] Journal of Intelligent Material systems and Structures (Technomic Pub. Co.)
[Dan] Material Chemistry (S.A. Cenfor/ S.R.L.)
[Eleanor] Smart Materials and Structures (IOP Publishing)
[Heajin] Chemistry World (RSC) + Journal of Materials in Medicine (see if relevant)
[Noor] Scientific media that we could include in our presentation, e.g. video, graphics; (are you also finding articles in the Journal of Chemistry and Physics (Elsevier Sequoia)? I have you down doing this…)

Finding the links to these journals is done by going onto the Library Catalogue page and typing the journal name. Select ‘Journal’ from the drop-down menu. It’s usually the ones at the top that have the most relevance (you’ll probably be able to tell anyway). On the journal website, if there is such search option, it may be better to search chromism OR chromics rather than AND (doesn’t return many results). Also useful may be the e-resources that come up with some journal searches.

~ The meeting lasted from 11am until 12.30pm (a total of 1hr 30 mins).
~ The next meeting is scheduled to be Thursday 22nd November, which may change in the mean time.

Please post a comment if there’s anything missing or if you want to comment on how it went!
