We’re very pleased to welcome Maja Dunstan back to the group for a PhD looking at INS of lanthanoid single-molecule magnets.
It was all smiles at the inaugural MolMagMel meeting on Friday, as students and staff from Monash, Melbourne and ANSTO gathered to discuss topics ranging from neutron scattering to spin crossover to molecular spintronics. Hopefully, this will become a regular event.
The Boskovic Group welcomes new MSc student Jett Janetzki. We are looking forward to an enjoyable and productive next couple of years.
Congratulations to Olga on the publication of the review article:
“Switchable cobalt coordination polymers: Spin crossover and valence tautomerism” in Coordination Chemistry Reviews
This review will be part of the forthcoming special Austalian edition edited by Peter Junk.
Congratulations to Gemma for being awarded the runner-up prize for best oral presentation at the RACI Victorian Inorganic Chemistry Postgraduate Symposium for her talk:
“Elucidation of the magnetic exchange in a low-symmetry cobalt-dioxolene
Colette accompanied Professor Eugenio Coronado (University of Valencia) to the 2017 ceremony for the presentation of the Rei Jaume I Research Awards in Valencia. The awards were presented by the Queen of Spain.
Colette is on sabbatical for 3 months as a Visiting Professor at the University of Barcelona, where she is hosted by Professors Guillem Aromí and Carolina Sañudo in the “Grup de magnetisme i molecules functionals” .
A review entitled “Rare Earth Polyoxometalates” has just been published in the prestigious American Chemical Society journal Accounts of Chemical Research (Acc. Chem. Res. 2017, 50, doi: 10.1021/acs.accounts.7b00197). This article reviews all of the past research from the group in this field, with a particular focus on chemical and physical properties for future applications.
Colette and Elodie attended the European Conference on Molecular Magnetism in Bucharest, Romania. Colette gave a talk entitled “Mgnetic excitations in lanthanoid-polyoxotungstate single molecule magnets: an inelastic neutron scattering and ab initio study” and Elodie presented the poster: “Lanthanoid dioxolene systems: magnetic and photophysical investigations of a versatile family”
