IQCC Forum: Xmas 2019 edition

Next Thursday, 19 december, 10.30-13.15h, will take place the Christmas edition of the IQCC Forum, a quarterly meeting-place where high-quality science will be discussed. The IQCC Forum provides the opportunity for young researchers (and more advanced researchers) to present their work to a wide audience. This will lead to better knowledge of the work that is being performed in all the different research groups of the institute, and enables the researchers to communicate their exciting new findings.

Schedule (Sala AC017, LEAR, Aulari Comú Montilivi)

  • 10.30h: Guillem Casadevall – Reconversion of a hydroxynitrile lyase into an esterase by computational rational design
  • 10.50h: Jordi Vila – Rh-catalyzed cyclization reactions involving 1,5-bisallenes
  • 11.10h: Sílvia Escayola – Mechanistic studies of nitrous oxide fixation by homogeneous ruthenium hydride pincer catalysts
  • 11.30h: Coffee break – networking
  • 12.00h: Andrea Palone – Predictable enantioselectivity in C-H bond oxidation catalyzed by manganese complexes
  • 12.20h: Steven Roldán – Computational mechanistic studies on the aromatic homologation and the alkyne mono-annulation of a C-F activated nickel complex
  • 12.40h: Mònica Rodríguez – Csp3-H alkylation via metallocarbene intermediates using an electrophilic iron catalysts paired with a lithium cation

We are looking forward to seeing you at the IQCC Forum!
