Lead by Prof. Dušan Uhrín, Scottish NMR spectroscopists have been awarded £ 1.4 mil for a major upgrade of the 800 MHz NMR spectrometer housed in the School of Chemistry of the University of Edinburgh.
Professor Polly Arnold has been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society.
Prof. Arnold has been recognised for her research focused on the design and synthesis of highly reactive f-block complexes that can activate inert small molecules such as carbon oxides, dinitrogen, and hydrocarbons, and that can provide fundamental information on structure and bonding at the bottom of the periodic table.
Congratulations to five members of staff from EaStCHEM who have recently been awarded prizes by the RSC. The winners and their prizes are:
Good luck to School of Chemsitry student Tianyue Li who will take part in today's 3 Minute Thesis Science and Engineering Heat. Her presentation is titled "A Song of Light and Electricity".
The 2015 “Molecular Movie” article in the journal Phys. Rev. Lett. by scientists at Brown University, Stanford and University of Edinburgh has been highlighted by the US Department of Energy (DOE) as one of the main scientific breakthroughs to come out of a National Laboratory over the past 75 years.
Professor Polly Arnold and Professor Lesley Yellowlees have been named among the 12 most important women in chemistry. The list was created by Compound Interest in honour of International Women's Day.
The list of current researchers is a counterpart to their list of famous women in the history of chemistry.
Jamie won for his talk entitled "Polyoxo Actinide Chemistry". The research is funded by the National Nuclear Laboratory as part of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority's PhD bursary scheme and Jamie would like to thank them for their involvement.
Well done Jamie!
