Excursion to TUM
Seven members of the ACII travelled to the TU Munich and visited the new CRC building. They were welcomed and guided by Mirza Cokoja, Richard Fischer and their fellow members.
Prof. Fischer accepted the professorship at the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry and Metal-Organic Chemistry at the Technical University of Munich (succession of Prof. W. A. Herrmann). The relocation of the group will be largely finished until the end of 2016. The existing cooperations at the Ruhr-University Bochum will be continued.
Dr. Venkatram Nalla will visit the ACII this month and give us insight into his field of research on the 23rd of June, 2015: Nonlinear Optical Materials and Applications – Highly nonlinear materials for future generation optical devices. The presentation will be held at 16:15 h in NC 2/99.
The publication on "Liquid phase stepwise growth of surface mounted metal–organic frameworks for exploratory research and development of applications" by Min Tu, Suttipong Wannapaiboon and Roland A. Fischer* is amongst the Top 10 accessed articles of the journal Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers in the third quarter of 2014 (July - September).
Sebastian Henke will return in November 2014 to the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry II at the Ruhr-University Bochum. In 2011 he finished his PhD here and now takes the opportunity of the Return Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
Congratulations to Clarissa Kroll, who won the Student Poster Prize at the XXVI International Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (ICOMC) 2014 in Sapporo, Japan. This prize has been awarded for her poster presentation on "Non Aqueous Organometallic Synthesis of Bimetallic Nanoparticles and Colloids (2P195)."
Congratulations also to Christoph Rösler and Sebastian Henke, who won Poster Awards at the 4th International Conference on Metal-Organic Frameworks and Open Framework Compounds. Christoph Rösler his poster on "Graphene/MOF composite materials for electrocatalysis" and Sebastian Henke on "Investigatives on the Exceptional Mechanical Response of Pillared-Layered Soft Porous Crystals"
