Royal Society of Chemistry NMR Discussion Group – 8th Annual Postgraduate Meeting, University of Manchester

The annual NMR Discussion Group Postgraduate  Meeting  is  now  an established event and the 8th  meeting was hosted by the School of Chemistry, University of Manchester.  As always, the meeting provided an ideal forum for early career research workers to present their work in an informal environment, either orally or as a poster.    Established researchers, from both academia and industry, also attended the meeting as delegates.  A diverse range of topics was presented, covering all magnetic resonance related disciplines, including small molecule  characterisation,  solid-state NMR, imaging and molecular biology.

To complement presentations given by early career  research  workers,  overview  lectures  were  delivered  by  Professor  David Middleton (University of Lancaster) and Dr Mathias Nilsson (University of Manchester) on ‘Adventures in Biomolecular Design and Solid-State NMR’ and ‘Pure Shift NMR’ respectively.  The meeting was sponsored by Thermo Scientific and the Royal Society of Chemistry, and prizes were awarded for the best oral and poster presentations. Judging was carried out by three independent members of the NMR Discussion Group Committee.

Graphical Abstract
The prize for the best oral presentation was awarded to Davy Sinnaeve (Ghent University/University of Manchester), for his work on Ultrahigh resolution 1H – 1H coupling measurements, by Professor Gareth Morris  (NMR  DG Chairperson) and  Dr   Andrew   McLachlan  (Thermo Scientific).

Conference report: The 4th Workshop on Microfluidics

Posted on behalf of Angelo Luiz Gobbi, conference organiser of the 4th Workshop on Microfluidics

The 4th Workshop on Microfluidics was held at the National Center for Research on Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, Sao Paulo (Brazil) from July 24-25, 2014. Since 2011, the workshop has brought together young students, researchers, and companies from different states of Brazil to discuss topics related to the fundamentals, fabrication technologies, innovations, and applications in microfluidic science. This field has been spread out around different regions of the Brazil with great contributions for fabrication technologies as well as innovative developments and diverse applications.

For the second time, the event was supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry. Representing the scientific board of the IV Workshop on Microfluidics, Prof. Dr. José Alberto Fracassi da Silva presented the awards to the two best posters which were granted by Royal Society of Chemistry.

Furthermore, the Analytical Methods Award” was considered for the innovative and original work on Analytical Science. The winner was Mr. Paulo de Tarso Garcia from University of Goias. Mr. Garcia is a Ph.D. candidate under supervision of Dr. Wendell K. T. Coltro and he was also awarded with a book entitled: “The Cosmic-Chemical Bond ”. The work presented by Mr. Paulo describes the preparation and application of paper-based microfluidic devices for clinical assays. Metallic stamp was used to delimit the microfluidic regions. The device was applied for quantification of nitrite, bovine serum albumin, glucose, and urea.

The Lab on a Chip Award”, in turn, was considered for the most innovative work in the field of microfluidics. It was given to Ms. Debora Freitas do Nascimento, a Ph.D. candidate at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Maria de Fátima Vieira Marques. Ms. Nascimento was also prized with a Tablet. The developed work relies on the use of a microfluidic system to assemble monodisperse droplets containing poly(ethylene glycol), chitosan, and alginate with isoniazid as encapsulant.

Sincerely yours,

Angelo Luiz Gobbi

Advances in GC IV, Cheshire

Advances in GC IV
30th October 2013 (First Announcement)
LGC Ltd, The Heath Business Park, Runcorn, Cheshire

Joint meeting organised by The Chromatographic Society and the North West Region of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

After the success of the 2011 meeting we are pleased to announce another follow up meeting in the series.
GC is still technique of choice for analysing both volatile and semi volatile compounds, but as we move to more difficult matrices, more is being asked of the technique in terms of separation and limits of detection. The meeting sets out to both give an overview of current GC technologies and methodologies, information on newer detection/separation solutions and case studies from all the main user areas.
 
In parallel to the full meeting program will be an Instrument exhibition with representatives from all the major GC Instrument and Consumables Suppliers.
