She worked with them in some experiments and encourage them to find motivation in science, and especially chemistry in order…
Carmen and Ana visited IES La Patacona and IES Escultor En Francesc Badía with the “Química a l’escola” initiative from the Chemistry Faculty. These visits consist of a talk about the importance of chemistry in our daily life followed by some laboratory demonstrations. They had a wonderful time sharing the virtues of science with young students.
Brent Nannenga, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering in the School for Engineering Matter, Transport and Energy at Arizona State University and a member of The Biodesign Institute’s Center for Applied Structural Discovery, visited us to present the last advances on the use of microcrystal electron diffraction. We are hopeful this will initiate a fruitful collaboration between both groups.
Germán Sastre, tenured scientist at the Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ), visited us to discuss on the computational approach to the analysis and understanding of host-guest interactions in soft and hard matter. Thanks for the visit!
Funimat was very actively present at the meeting with the organization of the symposium in Porous Materials (Carlos), oral lectures (Elena, Natalia & María), poster presentations (Belén, Carmen & Ana) and general organization (Violeta, Clara & Sonia). It was great to meet all colleagues in person again!
Javier Castells and Javier López (aka ‘Los Javis’) have been awarded APOST Fellowships from the Generalitat Valenciana to continue their academic careers at the University of Birmingham (UK) and the University of Kyoto (Japan). Congratulations!
Víctor Rubio Giménez has been awarded a fellowship of the CDIGenT program of the Generalitat Valenciana’s GenT Plan for the return to centres in the Valencian Community of talented researchers who have already gained international experience after his postdoctoral stage at KU Leuven. Congratulations Víctor!
Carl Brozek, tenured Associate Professor at the University of Oregon, visited us to reinforce the links between our groups, share time with all team members and present the last advances of his team on understanding conductivity and dynamic bonding in nanoscale MOFs. Thanks a lot for the visit, Carl!
Funimat was present at the ACS Symposium held in Chicago. Natalia, Sergio and Carlos presented our most recent results in the synthesis, processing and engineering of titanium MOFs in symposium dedicated to MOF chemistry whereas Neyvis participated in the Catalysis and reactivity symposium.
After 2 years of COVID suspension we were looking forward to participating in the XIV edition of Expociencia. Close to 50% of the group (Eloy, Natalia, Violeta, Carmen, Clara, Neyvis, Ana and Belén) prepared new activities to approach chemistry to a very young audience.
