Guillaume attended MechanoChemBio 2019 held in Montreal and presented the group latest advances on the mechanochemistry of the rotaxane. It was an excellent meeting with a lot of cool mechano(bio)chemistry on show! Great time catching up with the mechano(bio)chemistry community. Congrats to Matt Harrington, Kerstin Blank and all the @mcb2019 team for this successful meeting. Looking forward to #mcb2021 !
Rich and Rob presented a talk, and Tom a poster at the annual Postgrad conference in the School of Chemistry. Rich came back with a presentation prize, well done!
It was a great pleasure to welcome Prof. Martin Beyer in Manchester. Martin is a pioneer in mechanochemistry, he is the inventor of CoGEF calculation method.
Guillaume went back to his hometown to deliver a Keynote Lecture at the "Building and Probing Small" Symposium. The symposium was organised by Anne-Sophie Duwez (http://www.nanochem.ulg.ac.be) and took place at the Academy Palace at the heart of Brussels. It was a perfect mix of molecular machines and mechanochemistry, with an impressive line up of speakers.
We had the great pleasure to host Jeff Moore in Manchester at the occasion of his RSC Stephanie Kwolek award.
Our latest JACS paper, on the impact of a mechanical bond on the activation of a mechanophore, is now free to read, thanks to the support of the UoM library. #openaccess
We bid farewell to Evelyn who just submitted her MSc thesis. We wish her all the best in her new job!
We have a 3-year PhD position available in the group. Starting date flexible.
