Toshiharu Teranishi joins Chemical Science as an Associate Editor

We are delighted to announce that Professor Toshiharu Teranishi has joined Chemical Science as our newest Associate Editor.

Professor Teranishi is a Professor at the Institute for Chemical Research at Kyoto University. He received his PhD from The University of Tokyo under the direction of Prof. Naoki Toshima in 1994, and spent seven and a half years at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor and an Associate Professor. In 2004, he moved to University of Tsukuba as a Full Professor, and moved to Kyoto University in 2011. He is a vice president of the Society of Nano Science and Technology, Japan, and an associate member of Science Council of Japan.

His current research interests include the precise structural control of inorganic nanomaterials and structure-specific functions for high-performance devices and photo-energy conversion and welcomes submissions in these areas.

Toshiharu has selected 5 fantastic Chemical Science articles that he would like to share with you. We hope you enjoy reading them!

UK-India Symposium on Advances in Organic Chemistry

The fourth RSC-CRSI (Royal Society of Chemistry – Chemical Research Society of India) meeting in the UK was on Advances in Inorganic Chemistry, held in Manchester on 26th September, and Advances in Organic Chemistry, held in Oxford on 28th September. Chemical Science Assistant Editor, Sarah Whitbread, attended the event at Jesus College, Oxford.

The symposium brought together Indian and UK researchers to share their knowledge and facilitate discussions regarding future UK-India collaborations. The event was very successful with interesting talks from both UK and Indian researchers. After the talks and posters there was an insightful discussion on potential areas of collaboration in Chemical Sciences and interdisciplinary between India and the UK with a panel of top scientists in UK and India, including Royal Society of Chemistry President, Professor Carol Robinson.

Daniele Antermite from Imperial College London was awarded the Chemical Science poster prize for his work on the C(sp3)–H Arylation of Pyrrolidines and Piperidines with C(3) Directing Groups. Congratulations Daniele!
