The 44th Symposium on Main Group Element Chemistry took place on the 7th to 9th December at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Over 250 delegates attended the symposium which was chaired by Prof Kei Goto (TITech).
ChemComm was proud to sponsor two prizes, which were chosen out of 60 oral presentations and 108 poster presentations.
The winner of the ChemComm oral presentation was Mr Shogo Morisako (Graduate School of Science, Hiroshima University) who presented on ‘Syntheses and Reactivities of New Multiple Bond Boron Compounds’.
The winner of the ChemComm poster presentation was Mr. Tomoyuki Kosai (Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University) who presented on ‘Activation of Dihydrogen Using Disilenes Bearing Amino and Boryl Groups’.
Congratulations to both Mr Morisako and Mr Kosai, we wish you both the best for the future!
