Congratulations to the RSC Prize Winners at 4th Annual UK Porous Materials Conference!

The Annual UK Porous Materials Conference (UKPorMat), now in its 4th year, was held at Cardiff University on the 1st and 2nd of July 2019. The meeting, organised and chaired by the committee members of the RSC Porous Materials Interest Group, aims to bring together researchers working in the expanding field of porous materials, which includes metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), porous organic cages, porous organic polymers, polymers of intrinsic microporosity and much more.

The Royal Society of Chemistry was delighted to be a part of the event, sponsoring a number of poster and talk prizes:

•  Alexander Thom (University of Glasgow) was awarded the CrystEngComm Poster Prize
•  Giulia Schukraft (Imperial College London) was awarded the ChemComm Poster Prize
•  Iona Doig (University of Southampton) was awarded the Materials Horizons Poster Prize
•  Alex James (University of Sheffield) was awarded the Chemical Science Prize for Best Talk

Congratulations to all of the prize winners!

Poster prize winners at CEMWOQ-4

Congratulations to the CrystEngComm poster prize winners who were awarded at The 4th Crystal Engineering and Emerging Materials Workshop of Ontario and Quebec (CEMWOQ-4). The workshop was held in Ontario, Canada from the 26th – 28th May 2017. Christer Aakeroy our Associate Editor attended as a plenary lecturer and was on hand to award the prizes.

The winners were presented accordingly:

1st Place Undergraduate Poster Award: Junghoon Ko, University of Windsor, for “Discotic Liquid Crystals with Internal Side Chains as Potential Organic Semi-Conductors”
2nd Place Graduate Poster Award: Mitchell Nascimento, University of Windsor, for “Expanding the Family of Palladium-DTDA Metal Complexes”
2nd Place Undergraduate Poster Award: Austin Peach, University of Windsor, for “Applications of 35Cl SSNMR for the study of HCl Pharmaceutical Cocrystals”

The workshop enables an easy exchange of ideas, expertise and information and serves as an educational event for students. It also supports/creates new collaborations between research groups. There are plenary and oral presentations, and a poster session with opportunity for discussion within the program. A training workshop on the day before the main meeting is included, on a topic relevant to one or more of the existing themes of the meeting.

Further information on the most recent meeting, and links to other previous meetings, can be viewed at this website.
