This year's Stoddart Prize was awarded to Dr Andrew Maloney on Monday 18th April.
Before accepting the prize from Professor Sir Fraser Stoddart, Dr Maloney gave a lecture about his research entitled "Intermolecular distances and intermolecular energies - PIXEL analysis of interactions in organic and inorganic systems".
CERP is the world's leading chemistry education journal, published quarterly by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It is a journal for teachers, researchers and other practitioners in chemistry education. CERP is free to access thanks to sponsorship by the RSC's Education Division.
Congratulations to PhD student Giuditta Perversi for the award of the William Darling Memorial Prize for her work in "enhancing the reputation of the University".
This is in recognition of Giuditta's outstanding contributions to Public Engagement.
Congratulations to Nicholas Dominelli-Whiteley from Dr Scott Cockroft's group who was selected from among around 100 poster presenters as a prize winner at the 23rd IUPAC Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry held last week in Sydney, Australia.
His poster was entitled "The energetic limit of cooperativity in H-bond chains."
The IUPAC conference is a biannual event which has previously been held in Durham and Ottawa.
Dr Marc Reid, from the Lloyd-Jones group, has been chosen as one of 26 researchers highlighted as leaders of the future.
The researchers, from all over the globe, will attend the 252nd ACS National Meeting and Exposition in August. There they will have a chance to "build upon their careers and help shape the future of research information".
