Graphene award

Chemists from Queen's University Belfast are named on the UK's Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) roll of honor for their research into removing mercury from natural gas. The IChemE's Nicklin Medal is awarded jointly to Queen’s Ionic Liquid Laboratories (QUILL) and PETRONAS for the project. The award of the IChemE Nicklin Medal is the latest accolade for the University's multi-award winning partnership with Malaysian oil and gas giant PETRONAS which has developed a much more environmentally friendly and safer gas production process.
