3rd Dalton Summer School on Electronic Structural Methods in Inorganic Chemistry

16 June 2014 @ 9:00 am - 20 June 2014 @ 5:00 pm

16-20 June 2014 School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh Deadline for application 17 March 2014. Dalton Division will run a residential summer school on electronic structural methods in Edinburgh 16 – 20 June 2014. This follows the very successful prior events in 2010 and 2012. The course will cover both experimental and computational methods which define the electronic structures and properties of a wide range of metal complexes and inorganic materials and will be delivered by experts who have experience of presenting material at a level appropriate for graduate students. The course will have the following aims: To build knowledge of both core and advanced techniques in the determination of electronic properties of metal complexes and inorganic materials. To develop the ability to interpret relevant literature. To better enable students to understand and defend measurements that form part of their own work. To facilitate networking and awareness of facilities and expertise in the UK. To enable a shift in skills from technique-centred thinking to problem-centred thinking. The summer school will include lecture and workshop components, along with plenary presentations and the opportunity for participants to present and discuss their own work. Topics covered will include Electronic absorption/emission spectroscopy, electrochemistry, computational methods, magnetic measurements and EPR. The emphasis will be on how these techniques can be used together to address challenging problems in areas such as materials chemistry, catalysis and bioinorganic chemistry. The Division will provide most of the financial support for up to 40 graduate students to participate (covering course fees, accommodation and most meals) and only a nominal registration fee will be charged: 125 including accommodation 50 if no accommodation is needed The course is open to all members of the Dalton Division, but applications are also welcome from students who are not currently RSC members, provided that they join before the meeting.
