The Congresso del Gruppo Interdivisionale di Chimica Organometallica della Societa’ Chimica Italiana (Co.G.I.C.O) recently held their 10th meeting in the beautiful city of Padua, in the North of Italy. Founded in 1991, the group meets every 2 years to discuss recent developments in the field of organometallic chemistry.
Attracting established international scientists and young researchers alike, this year the delegates enjoyed a range of talks from the plenary speakers:
Paul J. Dyson, Lausanne, “Organoruthenium agents for the treatment of invasive tumours”
Steven P. Nolan, St Andrews, “Recent advances in late transition metal-NHC mediated catalysis”
Kay Severin, Lausanne, “Chemistry with organometallic half-sandwich complexes: sensors, nanostructures, and catalysts”
Christophe Coperet, Zurich, “Control functionalization of surfaces towards single-site catalysts”
Poster sessions were also held during the meeting and we are delighted to announce that the winners of the two Dalton Transactions Poster Prize’s were Daniela Intrieri of Università degli Studi di Milano, and Blerina Gjoka of Università degli studi di Padova.
Daniela’s poster was on the topic of ‘Ru(TPP)CO-Catalysed 2-Azido Biaryls Annulation to Afford Phenanthridine and Dihydrophenanthridine Derivatives’, and Blerina’s on ‘Iron(III) Amino Triphenolate Complexes as Catalysts for CO2 Fixation’.
