Quantum effects in small and complex systems

Quantum effects in small molecular systems
10 – 12 September 2018, Edinburgh, UK

Register by 20 August to secure your place and join the discussion

With something to appeal to researchers working on both isolated and confined molecular systems, we’ll be discussing some fundamental physical chemistry. Nonetheless the impacts are tangible in atmospheric chemistry, biology, physics, and astrophysics and astrochemistry.

We look forward to hearing from world leading researchers including:

  • Sir David Clary (University of Oxford)
  • Ad van der Avoird (Radboud University Nijmegen)
  • Joel Bowman (Emory University)
  • Steve Bradforth (University of Southern California)
  • Stephen R. Leone (University of California, Berkeley and Berkeley Lab)
  • Anne B. McCoy (University of Washington)
  • Petr Slavíček (University of Chemistry and Technology Prague)
  • Thierry Stoecklin (Université de Bordeaux)
  • Anne Zehnacker-Rentien (Université Paris Sud)

Don’t forget that every delegate has the opportunity to participate, with a record of the comments and discussions in the associated volume of Faraday Discussions.

Save the date: Quantum effects in complex systems
1 – 13 September 2019, Coventry, UK

With the rapid rate of development and broad application domains, the principal aim of this Faraday Discussion is to provide a snapshot of the current theoretical and experimental state-of-the-art in methods designed to interrogate and rationalize the role of quantum-mechanical effects in complex systems; simultaneously, this meeting will act as a new forum to discuss ideas which span the experimental/theoretical domains.

Submit an oral/paper abstract by 19 December 2018 if you wish to be considered for an oral presentation and associated published paper (submission opening soon).

Symposium in memory of Ahmed Zewail: Ultrafast molecular sciences by femtosecond photons and electrons

Faraday Discussions is pleased to sponsor the upcoming Symposium in memory of Ahmed Zewail: Ultrafast molecular sciences by femtosecond photons and electrons which will take place at the ACS Division Of Physical Chemistry 256th National Meeting in Boston, MA from 19-23 August 2018.

This special symposium in memory of the late Ahmed Zewail includes 44 invited and 4 contributed talks on the most recent advances in Femtoscience, including theory and experiments. Topics include reaction dynamics in gas, liquid, and at interfaces, charge transfer processes, primary processes in biology, and electron dynamics with ultrafast diffraction and imaging. These studies are now possible, thanks to developments in mid-IR, Vis, UV, X-Ray, and electron pulses with durations on the femtosecond and attosecond timescales, many of which were pioneered by Ahmed Zewail.

The topic is closely related to the Faraday Discussion in Ventura, California in April 2019 on Ultrafast Photoinduced Energy and Charge Transfer, co-Chaired by Mike Ashfold (University of Bristol) and Steve Bradforth (University of Southern California).

Enquiries regarding the symposium in Boston should be directed to the organisers: Dongping Zhong, The Ohio State University (zhong.28@osu.edu) or Marcos Dantus, Michigan State University (dantus@chemistry.msu.edu)

Challenges in analysis of complex natural mixtures

It’s tricky to analyse mixtures that don’t easily separate into their constituent parts. But it’s important to do so to look at pollutants in soil, the components of food or biological metabolites.

So we’re bringing together experts from across a range of specialities to discuss this fascinating field. From chromatographers to spectroscopists and those whose focus is on a particular biological metabolite or environmental mixture, researchers from around the world will be in Edinburgh next May to discuss Challenges in analysis of complex natural mixtures.

Topics for discussion include the latest mass spectrometry and chromatography techniques, high-resolution techniques, data mining and visualisation, and chemometrics.

 

So how can you get involved?

Submit an oral abstract by 27 August for a chance to join
– Philippe Schmitt-Kopplin (Helmholtz Zentrum München/Technical University Munich)
– Chris Reddy (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
– Lutgarde Buydens (Radboud University)
– André J. Simpson (University of Toronto)
– Dan Stærk (University of Copenhagen)
and many more!

    Chemistry in the urban atmosphere & new heterogeneous catalysts – deadlines approaching

    We have a diverse programme of topics for our 2016 Faraday Discussions meetings – from catalysis through liquid salts to carbon capture and electrochemistry. There is something for everyone – do check out the full list on our website.

    The deadlines for some of early meetings are already fast approaching:

    power station chimneyChemistry in the Urban Atmosphere – oral/paper abstract deadline 20 July

    This meeting will cover:
    • Chemical complexity of the urban atmosphere and its consequences.
    • Timescales of mixing and of chemistry
    • Urban case studies
    • Numerical modelling strategies for the urban atmosphere

    moleculeDesigning New Heterogeneous Catalysts – oral/paper abstract deadline 20 July

    Topics discussed will include
    • Catalyst design from theory to practice
    • Designing new catalysts: synthesis of new active structures
    • Bridging model and real catalysts
    • Application of novel catalysts

    We hope you enjoy this selection of reviews and original research from across the Royal Society of Chemistry’s journal portfolio on these topics:
