2nd From Carbon-Rich Molecules to Carbon-Based Materials Conference

 

The 2nd From Carbon-Rich Molecules to Carbon-Based Materials Conference will be held in Nassau, Bahamas from 7-10 June 2018.

This interdisciplinary conference will provide unique “fusion” opportunities for chemists, physicists and engineers having various backgrounds but sharing passion and interests in carbon-only or carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials. It will allow a diverse group of scientists from all over the globe to discuss the current challenges, needs and prospects of this quickly-evolving multidisciplinary field.

The major focus areas will range from newly designed methods of chemical synthesis, characterization, and structure determination of carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials to measurements of their functional properties and investigations into their potential practical applications. The types of carbon-rich molecules include (but are not limited to) π-bowls and π-baskets, carbon nanohoops, nanobelts and short segments of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphene nanoribbons, and full-length nanotubes. This forum is designed to promote excellence in research and education and to facilitate the interchange of new information among a broad community of scientists.

Keynote speakers:

  • Luis Echegoyen (University of Texas-El Paso)
  • Miguel Garcia-Garibay (University of California, Los Angeles)
  • Mark Hersam (Northwestern University)
  • Kenichiro Itami (Nagoya University)
  • Klaus Muellen (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research)
  • Colin Nuckolls (Columbia University)

Other confirmed speakers include Malika Jeffries-EL, Boston University USA, Associate Editor Journal of Materials Chemistry C

3rd Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference

 

The 3rd Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference will be held in Cancun, Mexico from 2-5 March 2018.

Significant progress has been made recently in artificial photosynthesis based on molecular chemistry and material science.  However, developments in these two areas have occurred more independently than what is perhaps desired. This meeting will bring together researchers in these two scientific communities to explore possible synergistic effects of “fusion” between molecular and materials systems.

Key Sessions:

  • fundamentals of light capturing and conversion
  • water oxidation catalysis
  • proton and CO2 reduction catalysis
  • interfacing molecules and materials for photosynthesis
  • complete cells for the generation of solar fuels

Journal of Materials Chemistry A is proud to be sponsoring poster prizes at this great event!

Submit your talk abstracts before 30 November 2017

Submit your poster abstracts by 5 January 2018

Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship Winner 2017

We are delighted to announce that Dr Serena Corr has been selected as the eighth winner of the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship.

Dr Corr is hoping to present the lectureship at the 2018 Spring MRS in Phoenix Arizona, April 2018, during Symposium EN14 – Materials Science and Device Engineering for Safe and Long-Life Electrochemical Energy Storage where she is an invited speaker.

Dr Corr received her BA and P.h.D in Chemistry from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, where she held a Teaching Fellowship for 4 years. After a bursary award to attend the ICMR-ICYS Nanomaterials School (NIMS, Japan), she moved to UC Santa Barbara to carry out her postdoctoral work with Professor Ram Seshadri.

Serena is currently a Reader in Physical Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, and has held visiting professorships at UC Santa Barbara and Otago University. Her group’s current research on the design, synthesis and characterisation of functional nanomaterials for applications in energy and the environment is especially motivated to understand the intimate structure-property interplay, a cornerstone in the rational design of materials.

In addition to regularly making invited, keynote and plenary contributions at international conferences, Dr Corr is committed to the promotion of chemistry at all education levels. She is an active member of the School’s Chemistry Outreach Group in the UK, delivering lectures and demonstrations to schools, teachers and the public. She has also taken an leading role in outreach programmes such as Salter’s Science Festival, the BA Festival of Science, and the Royal Dublin Society Science Live event.

Dr Corr is an Associate Editor on Nanoscale, and is on the Editorial Board for Nanoscale Horizons.

Bright future for trace water analysis

MOF-based material has detection limit as low as traditional Karl Fischer titration

Researchers from Germany have devised a new way to detect trace water in solvents. Their technique combines luminescent metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with a magnetic core to give a system that users can see change colour then fish out of the sample once the test is complete.

Source: Royal Society of Chemistry The microparticle core contributes superparamagnetic properties to the compound, while the shell exhibits a mixed yellow luminescence originating from Eu3+ and Tb3+

Composite materials combining multiple luminescent MOFs and superparamagnetic microparticles for ratiometric water detection
