Our Groups

Within our Branch we have established a range of specialist interest groups who host various offerings for the membership to participate in. We'd love you to be involved.

These groups comprise:

The Inorganic Group of the Victorian Branch of the RACI welcomes interest from any area of chemistry in which people enjoy the use of metals, non-metals, metalloids, minerals etc. The group primarily serves to run the annual Student Symposium, typically in early December, at which the research of graduate students and early career researchers is highlighted. There is a thriving inorganic community in Victorian universities which participates in this event and we welcome all of our industry colleagues to explore the work that the next generation are conducting.
