It brings together inorganic chemistry students from Scotland and the north of England and featured internationally renowned keynote speakers Claire J. Carmalt, Andrew Goodwin, Robert Tooze, and Piet van Leeuwen as well as a number of speaking slots reserved for student talks.

 

The Dalton Transaction prize for best oral presentation was given to Alice Bumstead at the University of St Andrews for her talk Modulator-Mediated Synthesis and Structural Transformations of an Interpenetrated Zirconium MOF. The prize for best poster presentation was awarded to Reuben Leveson-Gower, a recent graduate of Durham University, for his poster entitled Novel Iridium (III) Pincer Complexes. Dalton Transactions offers a huge congratulations to both winners!

Professor Nishibayashi gave an excellent award lecture entitled Development of Catalytic Nitrogen Fixation Using Transiition Metal-Dinitrogen Complexes. He has been at the University of Tokyo since 2005 and currently has 200 publications to his name. As well as the construction of molecular scaffolds for supporting dinuclear catalysts for nitrogen fixation, Professor Nishibayashi also studies the design and synthesis of transition metal catalysts for organic transformations. More information about his work can be found at his website.

The event was organised by Dr Jennifer Garden (University of Edinburgh) and Emma Sackville (University of Bath), the post-doctoral and PhD representatives of the RSC Dalton Division, and featured plenary talks by Robin Bedford, Rebecca Melen, and Geoff Spikes as well as a packed schedule of oral and poster presentations by PhD and post-doctoral researchers.

 

Dalton Transactions was on hand to offer prizes for the best oral and poster presentations. The winners were:

 

Best Oral Presentations:

Conrad Goodwin (University of Manchester)

Alice Johnson (University of Zaragoza)

 

Best Poster Presentations:

Jamie Hunter (University of Edinburgh)

Kristine Laws (King’s College London)

Gemma Trott (University of Oxford)

L-R: Jennifer Garden,  Alice Johnson, Kristine Laws, Jamie Hunter, Conrad Goodwin, Gemma Trott, Emma Sackville 

 

 

DYME alternates years with the Meeting of Inorganic Chemists Recently Appointed (MICRA) which will be hosted by Rebecca Melen next year at Cardiff University.

Congratulations to the poster prize winners at ISACS 2017!

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.
