Request for speaker--Pigment deterioration

NatSCA (Natural Sciences Collections Association) is running a
biochemistry seminar at Kew (Gardens) Jodrell Laboratory November 9,
2006 (Thursday) and I am still looking for someone to give a
presentation and or demonstration on the biochemistry of pigment
breakdown caused by fading (UV), preferably to natural science
specimens, and by autolysis and/or drying (some pinned insects
losing their colour quite rapidly).

If anyone might be able to give a similar talk/ demonstration about
the biochemical effects of anoxic treatment as one of the speakers
has had to drop out, that would be most useful. Expenses up to
UKP100 plus free entry to the seminar.
