Cardiff Chemistry Conference 2014
19 March 2014
The 13th Cardiff Chemistry Conference 12-13 May 2014
Showcasing the Latest Developments in Chemistry
Now in its 13th year, the annual Cardiff Chemistry Conference is a forum for leading scientists from across the world to present the results of their ground-breaking research, with lectures covering the full spectrum of Chemistry as well as the interfaces between Chemistry and other scientific disciplines. Previously invited speakers have included Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and a host of other very eminent scientists, reflecting the very high calibre of speakers who have supported this event. Again this year is no exception, and the Cardiff Chemistry Conference will be held on 12th and 13th May 2014 in the Cardiff School of Chemistry. The invited speakers and their lecture themes are:
- Molecular Tectonics, Wais Hosseini (Strasbourg, France)
- DNA Bases Beyond Watson and Crick, Thomas Carell (Munich, Germany)
- Biomimetic Catalysis in Green Organic Transformations, Jan Bäckvall (Stockholm, Sweden)
- f-Block Complexes for Activation and Catalysis, Polly Arnold (Edinburgh, Scotland)
- Near-Infrared to Visible Light-Upconversion in Molecules, Claude Piguet (Geneva, Switzerland)
- Heme Versatility – From Catalysis to Regulation, Emma Raven (Leicester, England)
In addition to the lectures given by eminent scientists from outside Cardiff, the conference also includes lectures given by PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from the Cardiff School of Chemistry. The unique format of this event thus allows young scientists at the very early stages of their research careers to share the same platform as senior scientists from the world of Chemistry, giving the opportunity for some of our very best young researchers from the Cardiff School of Chemistry to showcase their exciting research achievements to an audience that includes international experts within their field.
The conference is sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry South East Wales local section and all are welcome to attend.
