ChemComm symposia on energy science and materials

Organized jointly by ChemComm and local institutes in China, the ChemComm symposia on energy science and materials consist of a series of one-day symposia to be held in three different cities ‒ Beijing, Tianjin and Dalian (please see the linked events below).

 




The theme of the symposia is energy science and materials, with a particular focus on sustainable energy and fuels, and will feature leading researchers from around the world.

Speakers at each symposium include leading international speakers and renowned scientists from institutions in China. These symposia are devoted to recent advances and new trends in energy science as well as interdisciplinary studies at its interfaces with other subjects, like new materials, nanotechnology, photocatalysis, CO2 conversion, photonics and biotechnology. The symposia are free to attend for all, however, we ask participants to register.

Together with our local hosts, ChemComm warmly invites you to take part in these symposia ‒ we look forward to welcoming you in Beijing, Tianjin and Dalian.


The standard registration deadline is set for the 17th September 2017. Please find out more for each event on the symposia’s respective websites.

‘Lightning talk’ prize winner at the University of California Symposium for Chemical Sciences

Congratulations to our ChemComm ‘lightning talk’ prize winner at the University of California Symposium for the Chemical Sciences.
Liban Saleh from the Spokoyny group

The meeting was supported by eight UC departments (UC Davis, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara) representing all areas of chemistry including biological, organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry. The symposium which was held for the first time provided an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to not only present their work in a multidisciplinary environment, but also take part in different workshops to further their career and establish connections with professionals from industry, government and alternative science jobs.

We would like to congratulate the winner of the best ‘lightning talk’, a short representation of the speaker’s research of about 5 min.  The prize was given to Liban Saleh who is currenlty working as a Post-Doctoral Associate in the group of Alexander Spokoyny (UCLA). His research focuses on inorganic and organomimetic cluster chemistry towards functional materials.

His tour will culminate at the Royal Society of Chemistry’s 2nd Asian-European Symposium on Organic Optoelectronics on 27-29 October 2015 in Edinburgh, where he will be awarded with his official Lectureship certificate.

Deanne DAlessandro

Deanna D'Alessandro

Deanna will deliver her inaugural ChemComm EMI Lecture at a symposium on Metal-Organic Frameworks: Synthesis, Properties and Applications at Pacifichem 2015 in Hawaii this December. Further details of her Lectureship tour, including additional lecture locations, will be announced in due course.

This annual lectureship recognises an emerging scientist in the early stages of their independent academic career. For information on previous winners see our website.

Also of interest: You can now read the 2015 ChemComm Emerging Investigators Issue which highlights research from outstanding up-and-coming scientists. There is a mix of Feature articles and Communications, as well as a Profile of this year’s contributors, with cool photos to spotlight our authors at work or at play – look out for the famed Faraday Loving Cup, some serious curling, the Great Wall of China, and once again, as last year, a pumpkin is involved!  You can also take a look at our previous Emerging Investigator issues in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Yong Sheng Zhao presents his first ChemComm EMI Lecture at the APCCOM 2015 in Beijing

Soon to come: We will soon be launching our forthcoming 2016 ChemComm Emerging Investigators issue – watch this space for more details.

Feihe Huang wins Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize 2015

Congratulations to Prof Feihe Huang from the State Key Laboratory of Chemical Engineering at Zhejiang University, China, winner of the 2014 Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize in Supramolecular Chemistry.

The prize, sponsored by ChemComm, is organised by the committee of the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry and is awarded each year to a young supramolecular chemist.

The Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize is named in honour of the winners of the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and recognises significant original and independent work in supramolecular chemistry. Previous winners include Oren Schermann, Tomoki Ogoshi, and Jonathan Nitschke.

Feihe will receive £2000, free registration for the ISMSC meeting in Strasbourg, France, and the opportunity to give a lecture at the ISMSC. He is also giving two additional lectures as part of his prize in Germany, at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and the Free University of Berlin.

Dr May Copsey, Executive Editor of the journal, will be also attending this conference to personally award Feihe with the lectureship. She hopes to meet many ChemComm readers and authors there. Please do let her know if you will be there too!

“Professor Feihe Huang follows in the tradition of other winners and is an excellent supramolecular scientist. He has published over 100 articles as an independent researcher, in top tear journals such as ChemComm,” says Professor Roger Harrison, Associate Professor at Brigham Young University and Secretary of the ISMSC International Scientific Committee.  He adds, “He has set himself apart from other chemists by investigating supramolecular polymers and learning how to control their properties.”
