Organometallics in catalysis: an article collection

Perhaps the most well-known applications of organometallics in catalysis are the Ziegler–Natta catalysts which are used to generate polymers, the catalysts are made up of mixtures of transition metal halides and organo-aluminium complexes. Karl Ziegler and Giulio Natta were awarded the 1963 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery and development of the catalysts, which today are the most commonly used for the manufacture of polythene.

The esteemed history of organometallics are not to be under-estimated and include Grignard’s reagents, the Heck reaction, Schrock catalysts, Grubbs’ catalysts and the Suzuki Coupling to name just a few. Organometallic compounds have revolutionised science and industry and to keep you up to date with the latest break-through research being made across all areas of organometallics in catalysis, we have made this cross-journal article collection free until the 26th September.

Talking inorganic chemistry in Toronto

Growing herbs at the University of Toronto

Growing herbs at the University of Toronto

The conference series International Symposium on Advancing the Chemical Sciences was launched in 2010, to celebrate the launch of the RSC’s new flagship journal, Chemical Science. ISACS8 was the eighth meeting in the series, and the second to have a focus on challenges in inorganic and materials chemistry. This year’s meeting was held at the University of Toronto, Canada.

A slight break in some unusually hot weather meant that for our time in Toronto, we were blessed with perfect weather –  neither too hot nor too cold, but just right! The good weather was clearly being utilised by some members of the university , as was evident in the very healthy looking herbs being growing in the courtyard just outside lecture theatre. I was very good, and did not help myself to any (but I was sorely tempted!).

The conference began on the Thursday evening with an extra special event – a lecture by Profesor Joan Valentine , who was recently awarded an RSC Honorary Fellowship. Her award lecture ‘Manganese and superoxide: Curiosity-driven research at the inorganic chemistry-biology interface’, was a perfect way to open the meeting.

During the  next three days, we covered a diverse range of inorganic and materials topics: main group chemistry, materials for chemistry, magnetism, porous materials and catalysis. The conference featured 16 Plenaries, by Warren Piers, Francois Gabbai, Viola Birss, Sossina Haile, Clare Grey, Simon Aldridge, Joe Hupp, George Christou, Russell Morris, Annie Powell, Noritaka Mizuno, Tom Baker, Kyoko Nozaki, Paul Chirik, Roberta Sessoli and William Dichtel.  The conference programme was completed with a number of contributed talks. As you might expect from ISACS conferences, all the talks were of the highest quality. Snippets of information I learnt from the conference are that Uranium is the Jekyll and Hyde of the Periodic Table, Chemical Science Editors work on Christmas Eve and that we need about 80 of the elements to live our lives.

One of the social highlights of the meeting for me was the speakers’ dinner, held  at the top of the CN Tower. With great food and stunning views, the evening was an excellent way to round off the first full day of the conference.  The conference was a good size ( about 150 delegates) and this  allowed many opportunities to meet new friends and catch up with old ones at the poster sessions, coffee/tea breaks and lunchtimes.  It was good to see a number of people at the conference who I have not seen for a while, including previous Dalton Transactions Development Editor, Anna Roffey, who left the Editorial Office to study for a PhD at UCL, UK over a year ago!

Many thanks to the organisers for arranging a great meeting, in particular local host Doug Stephan and Rachel Thompson from RSC, who in addition to ensuring a well organised meeting, also ensured that we had plenty of sweet treats to keep us going though the day (I have never seen so many cookies…)

3rd Dalton Transactions International Symposium – Bioinorganic Chemistry

Banner for Dalton Transactions Symposium

The 3rd Dalton Transactions International Symposium was held at Osaka University and International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research (I2CNER) at Kyushu University, Japan from the 14th-16th November. The aim of the event was to bring together scientists from around the world to discuss the exciting and ever expanding subject of bioinorganic chemistry and the symposium certainly delivered!

The conference began at Osaka University with a lecture titled ‘Reactivity of Mononuclear Copper Active-Oxygen Complexes’, by Shinobu Itoh (Osaka University) who examined the catalytic mechanism of the copper monooxygenases. This was followed by an overview of ligand design and metal complexes for use as diagnostic tools and therapeutic agents by Chris Orvig (University of British Columbia, Canada). Shun Hirota (Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan) gave an insightful look into ‘Structural Changes of Metalloproteins and Metal-Peptide Complexes’ before we briefly broke for lunch. Rejuvenated, Erwin Reisner (University of Cambridge, UK) spoke on solar fuel-producing hybrid systems and the prospects for replacing enzymes with synthetic catalysts, he was followed by Takashi Hayashi (Osaka University) speaking on the ‘Construction of Supramolecular Hemoprotein Self-Assembly Systems’. Nils Metzler-Nolte (Ruhr University, Germany) began the final session of the day with a talk on ’Bioorganometallic Chemistry: Synthetic Strategies and Biomedical Applications for Metal-Peptide Bioconjugates’ with some interesting results on cell delivery and organelle localisation. The day in Osaka was then concluded by Kazuya Kikuchi (Osaka University) discussing his work into designing fluorogenetic labelling systems.

The Symposium then moved onto Fukuoka on Kyushu island, to 12CNER at Kyushu University, where the day was opened with a welcome by the Director of 12CNER, Professor Petros Sofronis. The scientific sessions began with Seiji Ogo (I2CNER, Kyushu University), who discussed his research into an [NiFe]hydrogenase mimic as a potential catalyst for electron extraction from hydrogen. Research into a range of novel nanomaterials containing Vitamin B12 activity was then discussed by Yoshio Hisaeda (Kyushu University). The bioinspired system his team have developed works under irradiation with visible light and can be applied to the degradation of organic halide pollutants. Chris Orvig, Erwin Reisner and Nils Metzler-Nolte were able to maximise their contribution to the symposium by joining us again at Kyushu University and sharing their expertise in their fields. The event was then rounded off by two excellent discussions; Yoshinori Naruta’s (Kyushu University) lecture on ‘Oxygen Activation with Bio-Inspired Molecular Catalysts’ and ‘Oxygen Atom Transfer and Dehydrogenation Reactions using Molecular Oxygen as Oxidant’ presented by Tsutomu Katsuki (Kyushu University).

The symposium was a great event for which we owe much thanks and gratitude to the local hosts, in particular Dalton Transactions Regional Associate Editor Shinobu Itoh, in Osaka and Advisory Board member Profesor Seiji Ogo in Fukuoka and all the speakers.  For more information about the symposium, including a full programme about the 2 day event see the website.

On the topicof one of the topics covered by the Symposium, next year Dalton Transactions will be publishing a themed issue ‘Application of inorganic chemistry for non-cancer therapeutics’, with guest editor Professor Kathy Franz (Duke University, NC, USA).

Gaseous silanetriols: partners or loners?

Silanetriols are compounds of the general formula Si(OH)3R which readily form polysiloxanes by condensation, by substituting R for condensation resistant ligands a range of crystal structures have been identified for different solid state silanetriol compounds. Norbert W. Mitzel and colleagues have been investigating the intermolecular forces of gaseous silanetriols, the first investigation of its kind, with the aim of discovering if tert-butylsilanetriol [tBuSi(OH)3] dimerises via H-bonds or remains monomeric when in the gas state.

 

Intrigued? To find out more about the teams findings, including the taste of their silanetriol, read the full HOT article which is free to access until the 20th of December
