Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium 2017

The RSC Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium provides an opportunity for talented young inorganic chemists (PhDs and postdocs) to present their work to their peers and senior representatives from industry and academia. The symposium, funded by the Geoffrey Wilkinson Foundation, is free to attend for successful applicants and we will cover up to £150 travel expenses. On the day there will be talks from Royal Society of Chemistry prize/award winners and there is also the opportunity to win significant prizes including bursaries to attend an international conference.

The event will take place in Burlington House, London on the 27th March 2017.

The deadline for poster abstracts is the 13th January 2017.

Further information about the symposium and how to submit an abstract can be found here.

Inorganic Chemistry Symposium

24th October: Inorganic Chenmistry Symposium at Kyushu University hosted by Professor Yoshio Hisaeda

Our flagship inorganic chemistry journal Dalton Transactions was proud to co-present the Inorganic Chemistry Symposium which took place on the 24th October in Fukuoka, Japan. The symposium was co-presented with Kyushu University, Osaka University and the Tokyo Institute of Technology. It was also supported by Chemical Science, ChemComm, Chemical Society Reviews, and Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers.

Amongst those speaking at the symposium were Dalton Transactions Executive editor, Dr Andrew Shore (Royal Society of Chemistry, UK) who gave a talk on: ​Publishing your research in high impact journals and Dalton Editorial board member: Professor Polly Arnold (University of Edinburgh, UK) whose talk was on: Architectural control of f-block organometallics for small molecule activation. The full list of speakers can be found here.

MICRA2016 poster prize winner

Many congratulations to Dalton Transactions poster prize winner Dr Sophie Benjamin who was awarded at the MICRA2016 – Meeting of Inorganic Chemists Recently Appointed which took place at the University of Bath from the 5th - 7th September.

The meeting takes place every two years and brings together the UK’s community of early career researchers in inorganic chemistry along with experienced colleagues. The aim is to strengthen the UK’s inorganic community by helping junior academics to develop into successful, independent researchers through exchange of experiences and networking.

Further information about the meeting can be found on the webpage.

Carbon dioxide reduction put under the spotlight

Written by James Moore for Chemistry World

A team of scientists in China and France has made a rhenium-based catalyst that reduces carbon dioxide under visible light, providing a practical alternative to UV-sensitive catalysts.

By tuning the complex's ligands, researchers designed a rhenium catalyst that reduces carbon dioxide under visible light

By tuning the complex's ligands, researchers designed a rhenium catalyst that reduces carbon dioxide under visible light

With atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations increasing, scientists are searching for ways to halt the rise. One method is to capture the gas and convert it to chemical feedstock. But significant energy is required for its conversion. Considerable effort has, therefore, been devoted to developing catalysts for carbon dioxide’s electrochemical or photochemical reduction.

Interested? The full article can be read in Chemistry World.

*The Impact Factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, Impact Factors are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years. Data based on the 2015 Journal Citation Reports®, (Thomson Reuters, 2016).
