The 17th Symposium on Host-Guest and Supramolecular Chemistry was held in Kanazawa, Japan, on 18th and 19th of May, chaired by Professor Shigehisa Akine of Kanazawa University. Professor Tatsuya Nabeshima of the University of Tsukuba and president of the Association of Research for Host-Guest and Supramolecular Chemistry was also in attendance, as was Hiromitsu Urakami on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The Chemical Science poster prize was awarded to Mr. Akihiro Kanamori of Kanazawa University for his poster on the ‘Synthesis of Salicylideneimine-Based Cryptophane Derivatives through Chiral Self-sorting and Their Guest Recognition Behavior’.
The Chemical Communications poster prize was awarded to Mr. Lingyun Hu of the University of Tokyo for his poster on the ‘Construction of Metal-responsive DNAzymes by Incorporating CuII-mediated Imidazole-4-carboxylate Base Pairing’.
The Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry poster prize was awarded to Mr. Sota Yonemura of the University of Tsukuba for his poster on the ‘Formation of Chiral Single Isomer by Metal Complexation of a β-Cyclodextrin Derivatives introduced Seven Bipyridyl Groups and Origomer Complex of the Isomer’.
Congratulations to Akihiro, Lingyun & Sota!
