Asynt’s action-packed lineup at CHEMUK 2024

Published: 3-Apr-2024

The event will see a unique chemistry-meets-baking show and a insightful talk into processes that drive innovation in the lab

Asynt has announced it will be exhibiting at CHEMUK 2024 — the chemical, laboratory and process industries show taking place from 15-16 May at the NEC in Birmingham.

In addition to the array of effective and sustainable laboratory equipment on display, the company has a bunch of presentations and demonstrations to inform and entertain.


Chemistry is just like cooking – but don’t lick the spoon!

On day 1 of CHEMUK 2024 (15th May), Asynt welcome Great British Bake Off finalist, Josh Smalley, to collaborate in blending the world of chemistry and the culinary arts.  

Josh is a multi-talented chemical biologist, passionate baker, gardener and rugby fan whose painstaking attention to detail won him a place in the Great British Bake Off show finale of the recent series. 

Asynt will be hosting Josh at its stand (K80) to demonstrate his amazing baking skills, but not in the usual way — as he’ll be using lab equipment. 

The event will run from midday to approx. 12.30 pm, and will allow patrons to speak to Josh afterwards.


Electrochemistry, flow chemistry and photochemistry

Day 2 is going to be just as busy, with Martyn Fordham (Asynt Ltd Managing Director and Head of Product Development) presenting a highly anticipated session to all attendees:

Discover the essential fundamentals of flow chemistry, photochemistry, and electrochemistry in  “Close Encounters of Three Reaction Kinds”.

Martin will delve into the transformative potential of these dynamic methodologies, uncovering the basic principles that drive innovation in the lab.

The talk will be held on the 16th May, on Stage 5 from 10:30 to 10:50am.


A glimpse into chemical biology

Dr Smalley’s engagement with Asynt at CHEMUK 2024 extends beyond the kitchen. Introduced by Martyn Fordham, he will be sharing insights from his ground breaking chemistry research at the University of Leicester.

As a significant figure in the world of chemical biology, Josh’s talk will highlight the critical impact of scientific research that we may not even consider in our daily lives.

The event will take place on Stage 5 on the 16th May, from 10:50 to 11am.


Whether you’re a fan of The Great British Bake Off, an aspiring chemist, or a professional in the scientific community, this event promises something for everyone.
