Tomislav Friščić (McGill University), one of the winners of the 2014 ChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship, delivered the first of his three lectures, entitled “Mechanochemistry: from environmentally-friendly synthesis to the discovery of new materials and reactivity,” at the University of Ottawa on 25 February 2015.
Tomislav will next be speaking at University College London on Friday, 17 April 2015, and will deliver his final Lectureship talk at the 22nd International Conference on the Chemistry of the Organic Solid State (ICCOSS XXII) in Niigata, Japan on 12-17 July 2015, where he will be formally awarded with his Lectureship certificate.
Xinliang Feng (Technische Universität Dresden, Germany) was the third recipient of the 2014 Lectureship, and he will be delivering his lecture at ECME 2015 – the 13th European Conference on Molecular Electronics – to be held in Strasbourg from 1-5 September 2015. More details on this and Xinliang’s other forthcoming lectures will be posted soon.
Our annual lectureship recognises emerging scientists in the early stages of their independent academic career. We will soon be announcing our winners for 2015.
