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.

Poster Prize Winner at the University of California Chemical Symposium

Left: Crystal structure of spin frustrated TiCrIr2B2 with Cr3 triangles and trigonal planar B4 unites.

Right: No-spin polarized (top) and spin polarized (bottom) crystal orbital Hamilton population (COHP) curves for Cr−Cr interaction in TiCrIr2B2.

Congratulations to the Poster Prize winner at the University of California Chemical Symposium (UCCS): Yuemei Zhang. Yuemei is currently working in the group of Boniface Fokwa at the University of California Riverside. Her poster was entitled “Magnetic Ordering, Frustration and Possible Spin Liquid State from 1D Cr3-Triangles in the TiCrIr2-xOsxB2 Series“.

The meeting was supported by ten UC departments (UC Davis, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, UC Merced, and UC San Francisco). All areas of chemistry, including inorganic, organic, biological, analytical and physical chemistry were represented and the symposium provided an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to not only present their work in a multidisciplinary environment, but also take part in different workshops to further their career and establish connections with professionals from industry, government and alternative science jobs.

The prize was presented by the RSC Editorial Development Manager, Americas, Dr Jennifer Griffiths.

Intercalation Chemistry celebration through ISIC19: this year in Assisi, Italy

The 19th Edition of the International Symposium on Intercalation Compounds (ISIC19) will focus on the peculiar properties of intercalation materials. These solids have experienced a great development in recent years and represent now an established specific domain of solid-state research and materials sciences. The design and the characterization of intercalation compounds with advanced functional properties demands interdisciplinary competency in fields such as chemistry, solid-state physics and biology. This Symposium offers a unique opportunity for the Intercalation Compounds Community to bring together information, results and ideas that will stimulate further exploration in the field of intercalation compounds.

Registration deadline: April 20th, 2017

A very warm welcome to Richard Layfield

Please join us in welcoming Professor Richard Layfield who has recently joined the Dalton Transactions Editorial Board as an Associate Editor. Based at The University of Manchester, U.K, where he is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Assistant Vice-Dean for Research, his research interests include lanthanide organometallic chemistry, 3d transition metal amide chemistry and carbene chemistry, applications of coordination/organometallic chemistry in molecular magnetism (particularly single-molecule magnets). He also has some interests in catalytic transformations involving heavier p-block elements.

When joining the Board, Professor Layfield said:

“I am very much looking forward to working with the Dalton Transactions team, and to contributing to developing the Editorial Board’s vision for the journal.”

Recent articles by Professor Layfield published in Dalton Transactions include:
