The 7th Asian Conference on Coordination Chemistry took place at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia between 15 – 18 October. The first six ACCC conferences were successfully held in Okazaki (Japan, 2007), Nanjing (China, 2009), New Delhi (India, 2011), Jeju (Korea, 2013), Hong Kong (2015) and Melbourne (Australia, 2017). ACCC7 gathered inorganic and coordination chemists from all over the world to present their recent research findings and to exchange ideas on the frontier research topics in inorganic and coordination chemistry. The conference also served to showcase the fast development of coordination chemistry in the Asia/Pacific region.
Themed sessions we held on a range of topics including; biomedical materials, coordination chemistry, functional inorganic materials, lanthanides and actinides, supramolecular, organometallic and more. The conference was attended by delegates from at least 27 countries around the world, including Japan, China, Australia, South Africa, Chile, Saudi Arabia, India and Canada as well as many countries in Europe. You can find out more about ACCC7, including information regarding the Plenary & Invited speakers, on their website.
The 4 day conference was a huge success and Dalton Transactions is pleased to have sponsored 6 prizes. We sponsored 3 Early Career Researcher Presentation awards and 3 Young Coordination Chemist Poster Prizes and each winner received a certificate with a £100 RSC book voucher, a 1 year digital subscription to Dalton Transactions and personal invitation to submit to the journal.
