Archived News (Spring 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.

 

Post-doctoral co-worker Drasko Vidovic’s work on transition metal complexes containing the BF ligand has been the subject of a highlight article in Angew. Chem., Int. Ed. Christina Tang’s recent paper in Angew. Chem., Int. Ed. has been selected by the editors as a ‘hot article.’

 

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) and in Europe: 5th European Conference on Boron Chemistry (Edinburgh, August 2010), RSEQ Biennial Meeting (Valencia, July 2011).

 

An invited paper in New J. Chem. featuring contributions from former Part 2 students Phil Fitzpatrick and Cally Haynes has been selected as a ‘hot article’.
