August 1st 2016: Opportunities for MSc and PhD candidates

TOC_5_modelonlyA grant is available to carry out an MSc research project within the MACMoM program (Master in Advanced Catalysis and Molecular Modelling). More info here.

If you are willing to pursue a PhD in the exciting field of organic supramolecular chemistry, we are looking for a talented candidate to apply to the FI scholarship program (Application deadline Sept. 22nd). Info here.

Please contact me for further details agusti.lledo (at) udg.edu

April 21st 2016: Lledó and Lledós!

The Girona Seminar came to the end yesterday with the gala dinner at Casa Marieta.LledoS Afterwards we grabbed some beers and I took this picture with my doppleganger Agustí LledóS, physical chemistry professor at the UaB!

 

 

 

 

 

 

April 18th 2016: New IQCC website!

The new website of IQCC has been presented by our director Marcel Swart during the opening of the 2016 Girona Seminar this morning. Please have a look at it here.

April 17th 2016: Girona Seminar

Girona Seminar 2016 starts today with a fantastic list of speakers around diverse aspects of catalysis

November 19th 2015: 1st IQCC Science Slamscience_slam

Today I participated in the 1st IQCC Science Slam, an outreach event to promote the Institute research among the students and the UdG community. It was an intense morning with TED-like 3 minute capsules.

 

 

 

 

October 1st 2015: Lights on Chemistry

Today I traveled south to Tarragona to attend a mono-graphic symposium on photochemistry organized by ICIQ, “Lights on Chemistry“.  The list of speakers is impressive, including most of the key players in the field of synthetic photochemistry nowadays.

July 16th 2015: Org. Lett. Paper Accepted

My recent communication to Organic Letters has been just uploaded on the OL website. This paper represents my first step towards establishing a successful independent research line on supramolecular chemistry. Together with the recent acceptance of another OL paper on transition metal catalysis it makes for a fruitful summer!

June 23rd 2015: CaNaDARC project gets funded!

The proposal has been selected for funding through the EXPLORA program by the Spanish Government (CTQ2014-61629-EXP). EXPLORA seeks to promote audacity in new research avenues or methodologies and is de facto a high risk – high reward scheme. I have been granted 45,000€ (+overheads) which will allow me to start a new research line on the development of new methodology for the bottom-up synthesis of carbon nanotubes and related structures.

June – July 2014: ISMSC Strasbourg

From June 28th to July 2nd I attended the 10th International Symosium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry, held in Strasbourg. It was an intense week of lecturing and networking while coping with the heat wave that spread over southern Europe. Other members of IQCC were also present (Cristina Garcia from QBIS group gave a great lecture) and I had time to catch up with old friends.IMG_20150701_135419
