Meet Professor Stefanie Dehnen

Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Stefanie Dehnen of Philipps University of Marburg to the Editorial Board of the journal!

Stefanie Dehnen obtained her diploma in 1993 and her doctoral degree in 1996 from the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) under the supervision of Dieter Fenske on experimental and theoretical investigations of copper sulfide and selenide clusters. After a postdoctoral stay with Reinhart Ahlrichs (1997) she completed her Habilitation in Inorganic Chemistry in 2004. In the same year she was awarded the Wöhler Young Scientists Award from the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh). In 2005, she received a Heisenberg Grant from German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) and the State-of-Baden-Württemberg Teaching Award. Since 2006 she has been Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Philipps University of Marburg. In 2006, she also became Director and from 2012-2014, she was Executive Director of the Scientific Center of Materials Science at Philipps-Universität Marburg. She is currently an elected member of the Board of the Division for Inorganic Chemistry (Wöhler-Vereinigung für Anorganische Chemie) at GDCh, elected member and spokesperson of the Review Board (Fachkollegium) for Molecular Chemistry at DFG, and Editorial Board or Editorial Advisory Board Member of several scientific journals. As from 2016, she has been a full member of Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanity (Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen) and a full member of Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz (Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur Mainz).

Her current research interests comprise synthesis, formation mechanisms, stability, reactivity, and physical properties of compounds with binary and ternary chalcogenidometalate anions, organotetrel chalcogenide compounds, binary Zintl anions and ternary intermetalloid clusters.

Congratulations to the RSC prize winners at the 67th JSCC symposium!

Earlier this year the 67th conference of the Japan Society of Coordination Chemistry (JSCC) was held at Hokkaido University, co-organised by The Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ). Including both fundamental and applied work on synthesis and properties of coordination compounds, encompassing organometallics and bioinorganic chemistry, the event was a huge success with over 1000 attendees. More than 150 talks, in English and in Japanese, were given over three days, including Award Lectures by world-renowned academics Omar M. Yaghi (University of California, Berkeley), Yoshiaki Nishibayashi (University of Toyko), Jian-Ren Shen (Okayama University), and Erwin Reisner (University of Cambridge).

A number of presentation slots were also allocated to students, and the RSC was on-hand to offer poster prizes.  This year saw the presentation of the inaugural Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers awards as well as the eighth year running that Dalton Transactions and CrystEngComm have awarded prizes at this event. Out of a total of 460 poster presentations, the award winners were:

An Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers award for outstanding poster presentation went to Yoshiyuke Takemoto, of Nagoya Institute of Technology, for his poster entitled “Catalytic silylation of N2 by use of T-shaped cobalt complex bearing iminophosphorane ligands
An Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers award for outstanding poster presentation went to Shuto Mochizuki, in the group of Takashi Uemura at Kyoto University, for his poster entitled “Fabrication of ultrathin polymer films using metal-organic frameworks with 2-D nanospace
 

The Dalton Transactions award for outstanding poster presentation goes to Shuji Akinaga, in the group of Makoto Fujita at The University of Toyko, for his poster entitled “Inner-functionalization of crystalline meso-porous peptide complexes

The CrystEngComm award for outstanding poster presentation goes to Masashi Fujimura, in the group of Ryotaro Matsuda, for his poster entitled “溶存酸素吸着を実現する光応答性ナノポーラス金属錯体の設計

The winners were given an RSC heat-sensitive mug as seen in the photo above of Yoshiyuke Takemoto – who we hope doesn’t drink coffee while using that solvent drying system!

 

The RSC offers its hearty congratulations to all the winners!

Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers’ First Impact Factor 4.532

Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to announce its first Impact Factor as 4.532*!

We also received a ranking of 6 out of 46 inorganic chemistry journals.

As a collaborative journal led by the Chinese chemistry community, Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is committed to report the very best research from China, Asia and rest of the world to an international audience. This impressive Impact Factor 4.532 demonstrates that the journal has attracted and published outstanding research, and has a large, community-spanning international readership.

Many thanks for authors and readers! It seems that frontiers of inorganic chemistry attracted more attention of chemists in short time; we do wish publish more interdisciplinary cutting-edge research between inorganic chemistry and related subjects, and make much more significant impact on inorganic chemistry and beyond.” said Professor Song Gao, Editor-in-Chief of Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers.

The editorial office is also grateful to our distinguished international editorial and advisory board members for ensuring the high quality of the journal. Most important of all, are our reviewers, authors and those who have cited their work, and to them we extend our particular thanks!

We look forward to welcoming the next challenges and greater achievements in the future!
