The 2019 Journées de Chimie de Coordination meeting was held 31st January – 1st February in Montpellier, France. These two days were organised by chemists from the four major chemistry institutes of Montpellier (ICGM, IBMM, IEM and ICSM) in order to bring together the French Coordination Chemistry community around a scientific program comprising of six plenary conferences and Oral Communication and Poster prizes.
There were talks from over 20 speakers including, Jean-François Nierengarten (University of Strasbourg), Eduardo Peris (Universitat Jaume I), Clotilde Policar (Sorbonne University), Corine Mathonière (Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux), Myrtil Kahn (CNRS) and Abderrahmane Amgoune (Institut de Chimie et Biochimie Moléculaires et Supramoléculaires).
Dalton Transactions and New Journal of Chemistry sponsored a poster prize and an oral prize each.
The two poster prize winners were:
Ghada Manai, Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie des Nano-Objets (Dalton Transactions) for their poster entitled:
Matériaux hybrides nanostructures à base de nanoparticules de platine et de plymères peptidiques
Ekaterina Mamontova, Université de Montpellier (NJC) for their poster entitled:
Making Prussian blue analogues nanoparticles luminescent: effect of the confinement over the properties
