A doctoral student from the University of the North, Ms Hilda Mokoboki, has completed a very successful three month visit to the University of the Free State's (UFS) Department of Chemistry to receive training in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and advanced chromatography.

Organic Chemistry at the UFS has an international reputation in structure elucidation of secondary metabolites with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The Department of Chemistry has started an initiative to make this expertise available to other researchers. At least two publications in Botany will result from Ms Mokoboki's visit.
