Workshop on Silicon Nanoparticles

Earlier this month the Workshop on Silicon Nanoparticles was held in Bertinoro, Italy. Organised by Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Paola Ceroni (University of Bologna), the workshop gathered world-renowned scientists in the field of silicon nanocrystals and porous silicon, such as Leigh Canham (University of Birmingham, UK), Michael Sailor (University of California, San Diego, US), and Brian Korgel (University of Texas at Austin, US). The workshop was a great success, providing a forum to discuss the latest developments in the field and the most debated aspects related to properties of silicon nanoparticles.

Dalton Transactions was pleased to provide awards to the best Oral and Poster presentations.

The best oral presentation was awarded to Rens Limpens, for his talk entitled  “Carrier Dynamics and Mobilities in Doped Silicon Nanocrystals: When Do Free Carriers Matter?”

The best poster presentation was awarded to Sara Angeloni, for her poster entitled “9-10 Diphenyl Anthracene-functionalized Silicon Nanocrystals via covalent and non-covalent method

 

Dalton Transactions offers a huge congratulations to both of the presentation winners!

UK-India Symposium on Advances in Inorganic Chemistry

This September saw the occasion of the UK-India Symposium on Advances in Inorganic chemistry, held at The University of Manchester. Jointly organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Chemical Research Society of India, it is the fourth such meeting held in the UK. The purpose is encourage collaborations and discussion by bringing together world-renowned researchers from the respective countries. 

Dalton Transactions Editorial Board member V. Chandrasekhar (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Hyderabad) gave an excellent lecture on multiple bonding between heavier main-group elements. The journal was also on hand to provide prizes to the best poster presentations by early-career researchers.

The winners of the Dalton Transactions Outstanding Poster Presentation awards were:

Cordelia U. Dueke-Eze (University of Lagos, Nigeria) for her poster entitled Synthesis, Characterisation and antibacterial activity of halogen substituted Isonicotinic acid hydrazide Schiff bases and their Co(II) and Cu(II) complexes 

Vijay Parmer (The University of Manchester, UK) for his poster entitled Towards High-Temperature Single-Molecule Magnets 

Poster prizes were also awarded by The University of Manchester to Benjamin L. L. Réant, Jessica Cid, and Rosie Magnall.
