7 October 2009, The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London, UK.
On 7 October the 14th Desty Memorial Lecture for Innovation in Separation Science was held in what has become its established home of the Royal Institution of Great Britain. It is quite clear to see why Denis Desty loved the Royal Institution. Apart from it being the research laboratory of Michael Faraday, Denis’ hero, it also gave Denis the opportunity to demonstrate his other passion, apart from chromatography, that of flames. Standing behind the same lecture table that Michael Faraday used, you can see why, when you look at the vast array of gas supplies that are delivered to this lecture table. Unfortunately, these cannot be used today but maybe Denis would have found a way!
