Work at the Langmuir-Blodgett trough

Second year PhD student Bruno D’Agostino visited the University of Southampton last week as part of a collaboration with Dr Jon Kitchen on lanthanide-based Langmuir-Blodgett films. He also attended the day-long 2017 Southampton Supramolecular Symposium on Friday, which was organised by the Kitchen and Goldup groups in Southampton.

The Gunnlaugsson Group attended the Supramolecular Chemistry Ireland (SCI 2017) conference in Maynooth University yesterday. The conference, organised by former group member Dr Rob Elmes, brought together an array of international speakers for a jam-packed day of lectures and short talks.

Several members of the group presented their work at the poster session, with second year PhD student Hannah Dalton giving a flash talk on “Metallosupramolecular assemblies of a family of N,N,Oterdentate ligands”, work which was recently published in Crystal Growth and Design.

Many congratulations to Isabel Hegarty, who beat a tough field to win the prize for best poster, for her poster entitled “Lanthanide Directed Self-Assembly of a Series of btp Derivatives”
