The group headed to the Guru to say goodbye to Dr. Claire McMullin (who can be seen wearing a Jimmy hat below). Claire is moving on to become a computational teaching fellow at the Univeristy of Bath. Good luck, you shall be missed!
3rd June 2015
Claire and Dave attended OMCOS 18 (Organometallic Chemistry directed towards Organic Synthesis) in Sitges-Barcelona. Claire was selected from 160 abstracts to present her work on Ru(II)-direct arylation in front of the over 800 strong audience.
1st April 2015
Claire, Dave, Tobi, Nick, Emma and Vera travelled to the Inorganic Reaction Mechanisms Discussion group at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology. Claire gave her talk on kinetic modelling of C-I activation with a Ru(II) hydride-phosphine complex:
1st March 2015
Stuart, Claire and Vera travelled to ICIQ in Tarragona, Spain, for the EU-cost action meeting on small molecule activation. Claire gave a talk in the computational interest group on kinetic modelling of C-I activation with a Ru(II) hydride-phosphine complex from work that Dave McKay did in collaboration with Vlad Grushin. Here are two photos taken during her presentation and Stuart grinning at the conference dinner after upgrading his fish main course to a steak (thanks to Eric Clot's spanish linguistic skills!):
3rd January 2015
On Friday 23rd January the C-H Activationers (Stuart, Claire and Kevin) headed to the University of Leicester for a one-day symposium on catalytic C-H functionalization. Our team helped organise the event with our collaborators at the University of Leicester, which was attended by 90 chemists from academia and industry. Stuart also presented some of our collaboration's most recent results. Photos from the event can be seen here.
As we can't resist a curry, we took the main speakers out for a meal on the Friday evening, here is most of the group tucking into the starters:
