Iciar Uriarte got a grant of Formación del Profesorado Universitario (FPU) program. This national grant has a duration of 4 years and she will be able to enjoy several international stances during her Ph. D. thesis.
Our group presented seven contributions to the 68th Ohio State University Molecular Spectroscopy Sym…
Iker León got a Juan de la Cierva fellowship (3-years contract) and he is moving to Barcelona to work in The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) with Prof. Jens Biegert.
A work on the intermolecular cluster pyridine-methane in collaboration with the group of Walther Caminati has been chosen as cover of PCCP. Methane behaves in the complex as a noble gas, binding on top of the aromatic ring. This T-shape structure contrasts with the in-plane structure of other pyridine clusters involving halomethanes.
Grupo Especializado de carbohidratos of Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry organized XI Symposium on Rioja during May 28-30 and invited to E. J. Cocinero to give a talk entitled “Elucidating the structure of sugars in the gas phase“.
A work in collaboration with the Pate group in Virginia examined the weakly-bound cluster of sevoflurane···benzene ans was published in Angewandte Chemie. The primary interaction is a relatively strong C-H···pi hydrogen bond. The presence of additional C-H···F weak interactions hinders the six-fold symmetric internal rotation of benzene around sevoflurane. This is probably the first time that such a V6 barrier has been determined in a intermolecular complex.
Patricia Écija and Virginia Ovejas gave talks in the Auditorium of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the UPV / EHU, “IV Jornadas de Investigación de la Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología”
Emilio J. Cocinero attended and gave a oral comunication in the joint meeting between the Spanish Chemical Biology Group (GEQB), which celebrated its 2nd society meeting, and the Spanish Peptide Community that celebrated the XIV Iberian Peptide Meeting (EPI). Both events took place in Bilbao between the 4 and the 6 of February of 2014.
Over 30 young researchers enjoyed in Bilbao of the conference “VI Meeting of Young Researchers in Atomic and Molecular Physics (J2IFAM)”. The meeting was organized by our group.
E-volution published an interview to Emilio J. Cocinero. He criticised the cuts of Spanish I + D system.
The VI Meeting of Young Researchers in Atomic and Molecular Physics (J2IFAM) will take place in Bilbao along the dates 22-24 January 2014. The J2IFAM meeting is a good opportunity to bring together Ph.D. students and young researchers. From our group Montse Vallejo will be presenting an oral talk.
