The Royal Society of Chemistry held its annual Organic Division Ireland Regional Meeting in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI), Trinity College Dublin, on the 19th of May 2016. The meeting was organised by Prof. Eoin Scanlan from the School of Chemistry (TCD), and featured contributions from several Irish Universities. These included Maynooth University, University College Dublin, University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin, NUI Galway and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
In addition to featuring lectures by Irish researchers, Professor Véronique Gouverneur (Oxford University) presented her 2016 Tilden Prize Lecture. The meeting was attended by a large crowd of researchers with over 30 posters being presented at a dedicated poster session.
Anna Aletti from the TG group was awarded a prize for her poster about the anion studies on our btp-based catenane, recently accepted in Angewandte Chemie. Congratulations to Anna and also to Fiona O’Donovan (UCC) for winning the poster prizes.
A great day that showcased some of the most exciting chemistry research being carried out in Ireland at the moment.
