In chemistry for a collision to be efficient, i.e. breaking atomic bonds allowing the formation of new molecules and compounds, the reagents have to collide with an energy that is proportional to the bond strength and a direction that depends on the molecular geometry. This is what happened during YOCOCU 2012 (YOuth in COnservation of CUltural heritage), that took place at the Hof van Liere in Antwerp, Belgium on 18-20 June 2012.
