CrystEngComm was delighted to sponsor a poster prize at a satellite meeting at IUCr 2011, ‘Categorizing Halogen Bonding and Other Noncovalent Interactions Involving Halogen Atoms’

The satellite meeting is part of an IUPAC project ‘attempting to give a modern definition of halogen bonding that is as inclusive as possible’, read more at their webpage:

The CrystEngComm poster prize was awarded to Arijit Mukherjee, who works in the Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, for his poster on ‘Halogen Bonding in Some Trichlorophenols’
