Chemistry Conference Poster Prize

Arron Deacy, a DPhil student, has won the Best Poster prize at the International Coordination Chemistry Conference (ICCC) 2018, held in Sendai, Japan.

Arron’s winning poster was titled: Highly Active Magnesium-Cobalt catalyst for Epoxide/CO2 Copolymerisation.

Coordination chemistry is a very large, multidisciplinary research area involving large numbers of chemists, physicists, biologists and medicinal scientists. Since its beginning in 1950, ICCC has been highly active and the largest venue for exchange of the latest knowledge concerning coordination chemistry and related areas among researchers from all over the world. This year’s conference was attended by about 2,500 researchers, there to discuss current topics and exchange knowledge through discussions, lectures and over 600 poster presentations.

Arron is a member of the research group led by Professor Charlotte Williams, Fellow and Tutor in Chemistry, and he received a grant from Trinity to enable him to attend the conference.
