‘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.

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.”

IRIS-14 Conference

Are you ready for the 14th International Symposium on Inorganic Ring Systems (IRIS-14) conference? This exciting conference will be held from the 26th to the 31st of July at the University of Regensburg, Germany.

Dalton Transactions and ChemComm proudly sponsor this symposium, which supports and reinforces the position of research groups worldwide within the large field of main group chemistry. The topics of the symposium cover all modern aspects of main group chemistry in a wide range of disciplines from material sciences to pure academic aspects of research.

Additionally, Manfreed Scheer, Associate Editor of ChemComm, will be organising this fantastic conference. He is Professor (Chair) of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Regensburg (Bavaria, Germany).

His research interests include the synthesis and investigation of reactivity patterns of unsubstituted main group element ligands with the focus on the heavier group 15 elements as well as the stabilisation and reactivity of main group compounds consisting of combinations of different elements. The chemistry of highly reactive molecules like P4, As4 or compounds containing transition metal group 15 element multiple bonds is of further interest.
