The Congresso del Gruppo Interdivisionale di Chimica Organometallica della Societa’ Chimica Italiana (Co.G.I.C.O) recently held their 10th meeting in the beautiful city of Padua, in the North of Italy. Founded in 1991, the group meets every 2 years to discuss recent developments in the field of organometallic chemistry

Attracting established international scientists and young researchers alike, this year the delegates enjoyed a range of talks from the plenary speakers: 

Paul J. Dyson, Lausanne, “Organoruthenium agents for the treatment of invasive tumours“ 

Steven P. Nolan, St Andrews, “Recent advances in late transition metal-NHC mediated catalysis” 

Kay Severin, Lausanne, “Chemistry with organometallic half-sandwich complexes: sensors, nanostructures, and catalysts” 

Christophe Coperet, Zurich, “Control functionalization of surfaces towards single-site catalysts” 

Poster sessions were also held during the meeting and we are delighted to announce that the winners of the two Dalton Transactions Poster Prize’s were Daniela Intrieri of Università degli Studi di Milano, and Blerina Gjoka of Università degli studi di Padova. 

Daniela’s poster was on the topic of ‘Ru(TPP)CO-Catalysed 2-Azido Biaryls Annulation to Afford Phenanthridine and Dihydrophenanthridine Derivatives’, and Blerina’s on ‘Iron(III) Amino Triphenolate Complexes as Catalysts for CO2 Fixation’

Poster prize winner Dr Subash Sahoo at the ACC3

We are very pleased to report that at the 3rd Asian Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ACC-3), Dr Subash Sahoo, from the group of Prof. Rahul Banerjee of the National Chemical Laboratory in Pune, was awarded the Dalton Transactions poster prize! His winning poster focussed on chiral coordination networks and proton conductivity along helical chains of hydrogen-bonded water molecules. More details of the conference can be found here.

Dr Sahoo was awarded a Dalton Transactions certificate and a copy of the book Coordination polymers: design, analysis and application, which unfortunately he could not receive in person, but was accepted on his behalf by Prof. P. K. Bharadwaj.

The RSC Advances poster prize was awarded to Sandeep Kumar Dey for his poster on anion binding and host-guest chemistry with tripodal ligands, details for which can be found on the RSC Advances Blog.

Caroline Knapp wins again at the CCDG 2011 meeting

I am delighted to report that Caroline Knapp was the winner of the Dalton Transactions Poster Prize for the second time at the recent Coordination Chemistry Discussion Group (CCDG) meeting! The annual meeting of the CCDG was held at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK from the 7-8 July 2011. Caroline is a member of Jose Goicoechea’s group at the University of Oxford. Congratulations Caroline!

Find out more about Caroline’s research on Zintl ions in her recent Dalton Transactions articles :

A versatile salt-metathesis route to heteroatomic clusters derived from phosphorus and arsenic Zintl anions
Caroline M. Knapp, Joseph S. Large, Nicholas H. Rees and Jose M. Goicoechea
Dalton Trans., 2011, 40, 735-745

Reactivity studies of group 15 Zintl ions towards homoleptic post-transition metal organometallics: a ‘bottom-up’ approach to bimetallic molecular clusters
Caroline Knapp, Binbin Zhou, Mark S. Denning, Nicholas H. Rees and Jose M. Goicoechea
Dalton Trans., 2010, 39, 426-436

The meeting itself was a great success featuring a wide spread in coordination chemistry from actinides to artificial photosynthesis and magnetism to MOFs. The meeting saw excellent talks by keynote speakers, such as Polly Arnold (Edinburgh) and Jean-Francois Carpentier (Rennes), in addition to some great postgraduate presentations. I particularly enjoyed the great conference dinner ‘by the pitch’ at Delia Smith’s restaurant in Norwich City Football Club! Thanks to all those at UEA who organised this year’s exciting CCDG meeting.

If you attended the meeting yourself, do let us know how you got on by posting a comment below….. What talk did you find most interesting? Did you enjoy eating in the stadium?

EuCOMC XIX and CCDG

Just a quick post to let you know that I will be attending both the EuCOMC XIX (in sunny Toulouse) and Coordination Chemistry Discussion Group (in equally sunny Norwich, I’m sure) meetings next week. Dalton Transactions Poster Prizes will be up for grabs at both conferences.

If you will be at either of these conferences, I would love to meet you. Just send me an email or post a comment in the box below this post.

Hot Article: Metallocene alkynes catalysing dehydrogenation of boranes

In this HOT article, Rosenthal and co-workers present studies on the application of group 4 metal complexes, in particular metallocene alkyne complexes and metal amides, for the catalytic dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane.  In this context, the catalytic evolution of hydrogen from stable hydrogen storage materials has become increasingly important.
