Questionnaire on ALD- please complete if possible

Dear Colleagues

One of our final year Chemistry students here in Cork has prepared a simple 3-part questionnaire requesting your views on various aspects of ALD

The links to each part are as follows:




Please complete these short surveys if possible

Many thanks
