  • But I've heard about is that you are touched on the shoulder by the queen or a member of the royal family with the sword, just like you see in pictures in medieval battlefields and so on, though I think the sword they use is rather lighter and less sharp.

  • So in my case, so Martin, they're in full.

  • I would be Professor Sir Martin Polyakov, but nobody in their right mind would actually say that they might write it in the formal document.

  • It is, I think, for a combination of reasons.

  • I think it is partly through my role at the Royal Society as an ambassador of UK science.

  • But also it is it for my role in chemistry partly my research in green and sustainable chemistry, but also for my efforts, thanks to you, the YouTube watchers, to promote chemistry through YouTube.
