Australian chemists in Chemnitz

We warmly welcome the Australian guest researchers Prof. Phil Andrews, Dr. Melissa Werrett and Dimuthu Senevirathna from Monash University Melbourne (Australia) in Chemnitz. Their research stay through the DAAD programme helps to exchange knowledge on bismuth containing polymers and antimicrobial compounds.

GERMANY - AUSTRALIA - DAAD project concerning antimicrobial bismuth precursors

The cooperation between Prof. Mehring (TU-Chemnitz) and Prof. Andrews (Monash University, Australia) was chosen for the second time out of 400 applications to recieve a grand. Beside the investigation of polymerisable bismuth compounds for organic-inorganic hybrid materials the focus of this project is the excanche of experience and knowledge in the fields of synthesis an analytical techniwues. The project provides PhD and Master students of both working groups with the opportunity to expand their knowledge during research stages.

Conference in Slovakia

Christian Leonhardt and Philipp Kitschke participate at the „2nd International Confernce on Nanomaterials: Fundamentals and Applications“ in Košice, Slovakia.

On this, they presented their scientific results based on nanostructured hybrid materials in front of scientists arrived from Japan, the UK, Mexico, Spain and much more. During this, they got a lot of new ideas for their further research.

Christian Leonhardt received one of the „Best Poster Awards“.

Things always seem to happen when you least expect them

Dipl.-Chem. Philipp Kitschke was given the opportunity to design the cover image of the European Jounal of Inorganic Chemistry.

Wherein a Germanium-oxo Cluster with adamantane structure, surrounded by four tungsten carbonyle in front of the silhoutte of Chemnitz can be seen. The Germanium-Oxo Cluster was obtained by hydrolysis of a germylene and subsequent reaction with tungsten carbonyl.

In addition to the silhouette of Chemnitz also four selected buildings, such as the main building of the Technische Universität Chemnitz and a building in Art Nouveau style are shown. The cover image invites you to a jouney of discovery in the industrial city of Chemnitz.



 Awarded with the IUPAC Poster Prize

Ronny Fritzsche (Coordination Chemistry - Prof. Dr. Michael Mehring) from the TU-Chemnitz was able to convince the jury with his poster about „Methylcylopentadienyl substituted group 14 compounds”. Only three out of 479 posters were choosen and have been awarded with the IUPAC Poster Prize.
