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.
Congratulations to CrystEngComm prize winners: Bhupinder Sandhu, Yue Qiu and Shane Nichols. They were awarded their prizes at the Midwest Organic Solid State Chemistry Symposium XXVII (MOSSCS) which took place at Kansas State University, USA from the 9th – 10th June 2017. CrystEngComm Associate Editor Christer Aakeroy was on hand to present their certificates.
The MOSSCS symposium provides opportunities for the scientific community to exchange ideas and research results on the organic solid state in a relaxed environment. The symposium involves presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral associates as well as invited lectures on topics of current interest.
Further information about the symposium can be found on their website.
Congratulations to Mr Asato Mizuno the CrystEngComm presentation prize winner at the 25th Symposium on Organic Crystals which took place from the 18th – 19th September in Koyoto, Japan.
The symposium was organised by the Organic Crystals Division – Chemical Society of Japan. Mr Mizuno’s presentation was titled: ‘Structures and Physical Properties of 3D Crystals Formed by a Triangular π Radical’.
Congratulations to the poster prize winners at the 66th Japan Society of Coordination Chemistry Symposium which took place from the 10th – 12th September in Fukuoka, Japan. CrystEngComm and Dalton Transactions provided support in the form of poster prizes which were awarded to Takumi Hanaya (University of Tokyo) for his poster titled: ‘Synthesis and Photocatalysis of Mixed Valence Tin Oxide Clusters within Polyoxometalates’ and Takafumi Enomoto (Institute of Molecular Science) for his poster: ‘Near-infrared Light Induced Electron Transfer Reaction Using Distorted Phthalocyanine’.
The symposium is an opportunity for members to exchange ideas in order to contribute to advances in the field of coordination chemistry in Japan. The society is currently composed of 725 ordinary members, 23 Emeritus members, 267 student members, and 12 companies from legal entities. Further information can be found on the webpage.
Congratulations to our CrystEngComm prize winner Tomonori Ikegami (Hokkaido University) who was awarded for best oral presentation at the 24th Symposium on Organic Crystals which took place at Hiroshima University, Japan from the 1st – 3rd November 2015.
The symposium was organized by the Organic Crystals Division of the Chemical Society of Japan. Hiromitsu Urakami, our RSC representative for Japan was in attendance and commented that the award was “very well received” by the attendants at the symposium.
The president of the Organic Crystals Division, Professor Rui Tamura (Kyoto University) was also on hand to present awards.
Many congratulations to the following CrystEngComm poster prize winners: Josefina Perles (Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain), Laura Valles Rios (Freie Universitat, Berlin) and Shu Tsukui (Kyoto University, Japan) who were presented with their certificates by our Associate Editor, Professor Christer Aakeroy at the 29th European crystallographic meeting which took place in Rovinj, Croatia from the 23rd-28th August 2015.
The meeting took 4 years of preparation and stemmed from the Executive Committee of the Croatian Crystallographic Association (CCA) accepting an invitation of the European Crystallographic Association to present the bid to host the ECM29 in Croatia.

CrystEngComm would like to congratulate the following who were awarded poster prizes for their contributions at the 2nd ICSU/IUPAC Workshop on Crystal Engineering which took place in Como, Italy from the 30th August – 1st September 2015.
- Vijith Kumar (Politecnico di Milano, Italy): ‘Dynamic Separation of Homologous Dicarboxylic Acids by Nonporous Organic Solids’
- Hannes Kulla (BAM, Germany): ‘Direct in Situ Analysis of Milling Reactions using Synchrotron XRD and Raman Spectroscopy’
- Luca Catalano (Politecnico di Milano, Italy): ‘Modular Preparation and Dynamic Characterization of Halogen-Bonded Crystalline Molecular Rotors’
- Davide Capucci (University of Parma, Italy): ‘Stabilization of Drug Molecules Through Co-Crystallization and Their Solubility Properties’
Participation at the workshop was free and and consisted of invited lectures by internationally renowned leaders in the field with plenty of opportunities for young scientists’ networking with both peers and recognized leaders in the field.
Further details about the event can be found on the website.
The 2nd ICSU/IUPAC Workshop on Crystal Engineering will be held in Como, Italy on August 30-September 1, 2015.
The Chairmen of the Workshop, Pierangelo Metrangolo and Giuseppe Resnati, invite you to participate in this memorable event.
This international workshop will also serve as the mid-term meeting of the ICSU project CONvINCE “CONcepts and termINology in Crystal Engineering” and of the IUPAC project no. 2012-044-1-100 “Basic Terminology of Crystal Engineering”. The objectives of these projects are to produce guidelines for terminology in the area of crystal engineering.
The program of the workshop will comprise invited lectures by internationally renowned leaders in the field. Poster presentations are also scheduled and opportunities are planned for young scientists’ networking with both peers and recognized leaders in the field.
Participation is free and limited to a maximum number of 150 attendees, which will be selected on a first come first served basis.
The deadline for registration and abstract submission is June 30, 2015.
Full details of the Workshop can be found here.

IUPAC project meeting and workshop: Topology representations in coordination networks, MOFs and other crystalline materials
A follow up to the IUPAC project on the somewhat controversial issue on terminology of metal-organic frameworks and coordination polymers deals with the question of how we describe and communicate the structures of MOFs, PCPs and related network forming compounds.
The use of topology is very efficient in describing, disseminating and even designing such new materials, and the IUPAC task group deals with the project: Terminology guidelines and database issues for topology representations in coordination networks, metal-organic frameworks and other crystalline materials. As it turns out, network topology is also important, albeit sadly neglected, for the group 14 allotropes and even polymorphs of water.
The task group invite all who are interested to a workshop in Samara, Russia 21-23 May 2015 under the devise ”Describe, Disseminate and Design”. The workshop will feature talks by prominent scientist highlighting the network topology approach from many different angles, from mathematics to chemical synthesis and will also help the task group to gather viewpoints from the community. There will also be a poster session.
You can register and submit an abstract until 30th April 2015.
