Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium 2017

The RSC Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium provides an opportunity for talented young inorganic chemists (PhDs and postdocs) to present their work to their peers and senior representatives from industry and academia. The symposium, funded by the Geoffrey Wilkinson Foundation, is free to attend for successful applicants and we will cover up to £150 travel expenses. On the day there will be talks from Royal Society of Chemistry prize/award winners and there is also the opportunity to win significant prizes including bursaries to attend an international conference.

The event will take place in Burlington House, London on the 27th March 2017.

The deadline for poster abstracts is the 13th January 2017.

Further information about the symposium and how to submit an abstract can be found here.

Inorganic Chemistry Symposium

24th October: Inorganic Chenmistry Symposium at Kyushu University hosted by Professor Yoshio Hisaeda

Our flagship inorganic chemistry journal Dalton Transactions was proud to co-present the Inorganic Chemistry Symposium which took place on the 24th October in Fukuoka, Japan. The symposium was co-presented with Kyushu University, Osaka University and the Tokyo Institute of Technology. It was also supported by Chemical Science, ChemComm, Chemical Society Reviews, and Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers.

Amongst those speaking at the symposium were Dalton Transactions Executive editor, Dr Andrew Shore (Royal Society of Chemistry, UK) who gave a talk on: ​Publishing your research in high impact journals and Dalton Editorial board member: Professor Polly Arnold (University of Edinburgh, UK) whose talk was on: Architectural control of f-block organometallics for small molecule activation. The full list of speakers can be found here.

British Zeolite Association meeting 2016 prize winner

The 39th annual British Zeolite Association meeting was held on 21-23 March, 2016, at the University of Bath, UK. During the event, keynote lectures were given by Professor Richard Catlow, UCL, UK, Professor Diego Gatta, University of Milan, Italy, Professor Svetlana Mintova, CNRS & University of Caen, France and Dr Matthias Thommes, Quantachrome Instruments.

The Dalton Transactions poster prize was awarded to Huan V. Doan, a PhD student at the Unitversity of Bath’s Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies, for his poster entitled: “Synthesis of hierarchical metal-organic frameworks in CO2 expanded solvent systems.” Huan’s research shows that CO2-expanded synthesis modifies the porosity and crystallite size of the material and could lead to promising control of MOF formation for a variety of applications with reduced environmental impact.

Please join us in congratulating Huan!

Report from the Northern Postdoctoral Researchers Meeting

The Northern Postdoctoral researchers meeting took place on May 28th at the School of Chemistry and Zochonis Building, The University of Manchester. This was the fourth of a series of events organised by the Chemistry Postdoctoral Society for the academic year 2014/15, included in the proposal funded by the Dalton Division Committee through the Small Grants for Scientific Activities scheme.

The purpose of the meeting was to gather young scientists from the Northern and North-West region, giving the chance to showcase their research and offering also a great networking opportunity. The event was free to attend and saw the participation of around 70 attendants between Postdocs and PhDs coming from the University of Manchester, University of Liverpool, University of Huddersfield, University of Sheffield, University of Hull, University of York, and University of Leeds.

Postdoctoral researchers selected from Northern institutions (Manchester, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds and Liverpool) offered research talks which spread across a wide range of topics in chemistry. The quality of the talks and of the research presented was outstanding, leading also to a great interaction between the audience and the speakers.

After the coffee break, the meeting was moved to the foyer of the School of Chemistry were the poster session took place, featuring over 30 contribution from Postdocs and PhD from various Northern institutions. At the end of the poster session, two prizes were awarded, sponsored by Dalton Transactions. The winner of the prize for the best postgraduate poster went to Luke Wilkinson (University of Sheffield), whilst the prize for the best poster from a postdoctoral researcher was awarded to Kevin Vincent (University of Huddersfield).

In general, we received very enthusiastic feedback about the meeting. In particular, visiting postdoctoral researchers had high praises for the work of the Postdoctoral Society and offered to organise another event analogous to this in one year’s time.

The meeting was kindly supported by the RSC Dalton Division and the School of Chemistry (UoM). Furthermore the Postdoctoral Society obtained additional support from Fluorochem, Sigma-Aldrich and TCI. Dalton Transactions was acknowledged during the opening and closing remarks of the conference; additionally the Dalton Transactions logo was included in the conference material.
