Aldridge


Archived News (Autumn 2010)

 

Dr Aldridge has been awarded the 2010 Royal Society of Chemistry award for Main Group Chemistry, a prize awarded by the RSC since 1970 to recognize outstanding research in any aspect of the chemistry of the s and p block elements. The award will be presented at the RSC’s Inorganic Chemistry Awards Symposium to be held at Queen’s University Belfast in February 2011.

 

Post-doctoral co-workers Drasko Vidovic and Juan Baena have accepted academic jobs at NTU Singapore and the University of Huelva, respectively.

 

Dr Aldridge has been invited to give talks at upcoming meetings in the US: SW regional ACS meeting (New Orleans, December 2010), Pacifichem 2010 meeting (Honolulu, December 2010) IUPAC Congress, (Puerto Rico (August 2011) and in Europe: RCS Coordination Chemistry Discussion Group (CCDG) meeting (UEA, July 2011), RSEQ Biennial Meeting (Valencia, July 2011).

 

Recently accepted papers include studies of C-H borylation by Christina Tang (Angew. Chem.) and a communication by Andrey Protchenko (Chem. Commun.) on boron and gallium nucleophiles which has been selected as a ‘hot article’ by the journal’s editors. This article also features as the inside cover of Chem. Commun.
