Xue Jiao ('Crystal'), a graduate student at St John's, has won the Best Poster Presentation Prize at the European Society for Electro-analytical Chemistry (ESEAC) 2018 meeting, held in Rodos, Greece on 3-7 June.

Xue Jiao Chemistry DPhil prize winner June 2018Crystal's poster showed how nanoparticles' porosity can influence their electro-catalytic properties, using Platinum particles as an illustration. Her work demonstrates unambiguously that the internal surfaces are electrochemically active. 

Crystal is working for her DPhil in the group of Professor Richard Compton, Tutorial Fellow in Chemistry at St John’s. 

The prize is sponsored by the international journal Electroanalysispublished by Wiley.
