IMRE seminar on "Nanoporosity and the Welcome Guest: Developing Metal-Organic Frameworks for Hydrogen Storage, Catalysis and Sensing"
2 Jul 15 (Thu) - 11.00am - 12.00pm
Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF)s are crystalline materials in which metal ions or metal-ion clusters are linked by rigid organic molecules, creating a supramolecular network that has permanent nanoporosity. Unwanted “guest” species, which can be solvent molecules or residual reactant, can be removed without pore collapse. Once a MOF is activated, it provides a highly ordered, chemically tailorable structure that can be used to store gases such as hydrogen, perform as nanoreactors for catalysis, and serve as an active component of electronic devices such as sensors, light-emitting diodes, and energy-harvesting or storage systems.

IMRE seminar on "Parent Amido and Imido Complexes: From Ammonia Activation to Cluster Chemistry"
11 Aug 15 (Tue) - 02.30pm - 03.30pm
Parent amido-bridged complexes tetrafluorobenzo-barrelene or cyclooctadiene can be prepared by treatment of the methoxo-bridged compounds with gaseous ammonia.These compounds are interesting platforms of unusual low-valent metal amido complexes to explore their reactivity.
