The latest International Symposium on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) was held recently in Manchester, UK, and focused on Challenges in Inorganic Chemistry. The conference covered all aspects of inorganic chemistry, including organometallic, coordination, main group, bioinorganic, and materials chemistry, and boasted a great line-up of internationally-renowned plenary speakers.
Professor Richard Layfield, Conference organizer and Dalton Transactions Associate Editor, presented poster prizes. The winners of the Dalton Transactions poster prizes were Nikolaos Tsoureas and Monojit Ghosal Chowdhury. Nikolaos is a post-doctoral research associate, working with Professor Geoffrey Cloke at the University of Sussex, UK. He presented a poster entitled “Synthesis and reactivity of syn-bimetallic titanium hydrides“. Monojit is a PhD researcher in the group of Professor Sundargopal Ghosh at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India, and presented a poster entitled “Electron precise diborane units stabilized in the coordination sphere of group 5 transition metals: A new outcome“. The winners are pictured below with a Chemistry World poster prize winner Jasmine Cross who is working towards a PhD with Dr James Walton at Durham University, UK.
