Some highlights from Fall 2018 Chem 4320 Webcast Videos!
Thanks for a fun semester!
Welcome to new graduate student lab members Jillian, Connor and Tie!
Charles attended the 43rd International Conference on Coordination Chemistry in Sendai, Japan as an Invited Speaker in a session he co-organized with Prof. Hitoshi Ishida from Kitasato University.
Another excllent conference from 07/08 to 07/13 organized by Chair Christine Thomas and Vice Chair Al Barney. Seafood and science!
Our collaboration with the Matson Group (and Neidig!) has been accepted to Chemical Science! Congratulations to Asa and everyone else involved. Click through if you're interested in characterization of a molecular cluster with bound NO in five different oxidation states.
Asa, Shelby, and Charlie attended the 3rd International Conference on Proton-Coupled Electron Transfer in Blowing Rock, NC (June 10-14). All presented posters and Charles gave a talk entitlted "PCET Reactions of Metal Complexes with Proton-Responsive Ligands in Small Molecule Activation".
Many thanks to Jillian Dempsey and all the other organizers for a wonderful conference!!!
Lauren's paper, Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide with a Molecular Polypyridyl Nickel Complex, has been published in Sustainable Energy & Fuels. Thanks to Arnie Rheingold for help with the single crystal X-ray diffraction studies!
In collaboration with the Harman Lab, we have published a paper entitled "Reversible Modulation of the Redox Characteristics of Acid-Sensitive Molybdenum and Tungsten Scorpionate Complexes" in Dalton Transactions. Congratulations to everyone on a productive collaboration! IR-SEC, DFT, thermochemical cycles and more!
A dedicated workstation for large-scale electrolysis experiments has been installed in the lab! A BIologic VSP Bipotentiostat with two 20A/20V boosters ("Indra") is co-located with a dedicated Agilent 7890B GC ("Airavata") for testing and scaling paired electrolysis reactions.
Dr. Changcheng 'CC' Jiang has joined the group as a postdoctoral researcher. He completed his graduate work under the supervision of Malcolm Chisolm and Claudia Turro at The Ohio State University. Welcome CC!
Charles will be speaking at the Solar Energy Research Center Conference in Charlotte, NC on November 9th, 2017. Thanks to Alex Miller and Jillian Dempsey for organizing!
Welcome to summer researchers Lauren and Brittany! Brittany is a rising 4th year at UVA who is continuing research from the past year and Lauren is an incoming graduate student.
