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!
