Where did you see the Register for ChemViews magazine newsletter & win an iPad campaign?

A colleague brought it to my attention.

Did you know before?

Not really. I have a subscription to quite a number of newsletters. This one had escaped my attention.

How do you use

I am going to use it to stay informed about the topics which are of interest for my daily work.

What do you think of

If you start browsing through the site there is a lot of information to be found in a broad field. So I think there must be something in it for everybody.

What do you like best?

One of the things which is quite convenient for me is the easy access to the contents of a lot of magazines. It gives me the opportunity to screen the most relevant ones for interesting articles.

What is your field of research?

I’m working on the development of non-food applications of agricultural side streams, such as building blocks for the chemical industry.

Thank you very much!
