Congratulations to the EuChemS Poster Prizewinners

EuChemSOn the 26th August approximately 1,500 delegates from 60 different countries came to Liverpool for the 7th EuChemS Chemistry Congress. The theme was Molecular frontiers and global challenges, a topic addressed over 5 days by over 100 speakers and in over 500 poster presentations.

To celebrate the diverse range and oustanding quality of the posters a number of Royal Society of Chemistry journals awarded poster prizes. All prizewinners received an official certificate and a £50 voucher for use in the RSC bookstore.

And if you missed the action, don’t worry! You can watch some of the Poster highlights on Youtube now – featuring Immo Klose, winner of a Chemical Science poster prize and Anjali Das, winner of the Polymer Chemistry prize.

Congratulations to prizewinners at the 1st National Meeting of the Swedish Chemical Society

The 1st National Meeting of the Swedish Chemical Society took place in Lund on the 17th to 20th June. Roughly 500 participants attended to discuss a broad range of topics within chemistry and to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Chemical Association in Lund.

Dalton Transactions, Molecular Systems Design & Engineering and Soft Matter were all delighted to award poster prizes at this event.

The winners were

Levgen Pylypchuk (Swe. Univ. of Agricultural Sciences) won a Dalton Transactions poster prize for their talk on ‘Enhanced performance and stability of enzymes immobilized on magnetic SiO2-DTPA nanocomposites’

Shaoqi Zhan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology) won a Dalton Transactions poster prize for their talk on ‘Artificial photosynthesis catalysts dancing on carbon nanotubes’

Masoumeh Dowlatshahi Pour (Chalmers University of Technology) won a MSDE poster prize for their talk on ‘Altered lipid composition of secretory cells following exposure to zinc can be correlated to changes in exocytosis’

Shira Joudan (University of Toronto) won a MSDE poster prize for their talk on ‘Biological cleavage of the C-P bond in perfluoroalkyl phosphinic acids in male Sprague Dawley rats and the formation of persistent and reactive metabolites’

Kristina Thomsson Hulthe (University of Gothenburg) won a Soft Matter poster prize for their talk on ‘Recombinant O-linked glycosylation mimic of an osteoarthritic biolubricating proteines’

Martin Ratsch (University of Gothenburg) won a Soft Matter poster prize for their talk on ‘Covalent organic framework films on surfaces’
