RSC Desktop Seminar with Dalton Transactions

10 November 2022 15:00-16:00, United Kingdom

Welcome to the latest RSC Desktop Seminar hosted by Dalton Transactions.

This free 1 hour seminar, chaired by Dalton Transactions Editorial Board Chair, Professor Russell Morris (University of St Andrews, UK), will focus on metal-organic framework (MOF) chemistry and feature two research talks from members of the journal's Editorial and Advisory Boards:
  • Professor Sascha Ott (Uppsala University, Sweden); Editorial Board member
  • Dr Ilich Ibarra (UNAM, Mexico); Advisory Board member
A panel discussion led by Professor Morris will follow the research talks, allowing researchers of all professional levels to connect, share ideas, and ask questions.


15:00 GMT - Introduction by Professor Russell Morris

15:05 GMT - "Electron hopping charge transport and molecular electrocatalysis in metal-organic frameworks  - Professor Sascha Ott

15:25 GMT - "Chemically stable supramolecular candidates for the capture of SO2 and H2S: from the oxidation of SO2 to the unusual formation of polysulfides" - Dr Ilich Ibarra

15:45 GMT - Panel discussion

Dr Ilich A. Ibarra, National Autonomous University of Mexico, Mexico

Dr. Ilich A. Ibarra completed his BSc in chemistry at Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (UAM, Mexico) in 2005. In 2006 he worked at the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ, Mexico) in collaboration with the Instituto de Investigaciones en Materiales (UNAM, Mexico) under the supervision of Prof. Silvia Bulbulian, Prof. Enrique Lima and Prof. Pedro Bosch. Later, in 2010 he obtained his PhD in Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Martin Schröder at The University of Nottingham (UK). He then took a postdoctoral position, 2010-2012, at The University of Texas at Austin (USA) where he worked under the supervision Prof. Simon Humphrey. In 2013, he was awarded as a Wenner-Gren researcher at Stockholm University (Sweden) under the supervision of Prof. Xiaodong Zou. In 2014, he moved to UNAM (Institute of Materials Research), as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2017.

Professor Sascha Ott, Uppsala University, Sweden

Sascha Ott obtained his PhD in Chemistry at University College London, U.K., in 2002, followed by a postdoctoral spell with Profs. Björn Åkermark and Licheng Sun at Stockholm University, Sweden. In 2004, he moved to Uppsala University, where he became chair professor in Synthetic Molecular Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory in 2017. Research in the group is centred on different topics at the interface of organic chemistry and molecular inorganic chemistry. These include works on low-coordinate and low-valent phosphorus in an organic chemistry context, and the development of molecular redox catalysts of energy relevance, more recently on molecular electrocatalysis in the confinement of metal-organic frameworks. He is the recipient of a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (2015).
