Quo Vadis Chemie: Bimetallic Nanoclusters as a Unique Catalyst (prof. Hidehiro Sakurai, Osaka University)

Quo Vadis Chemie: Bimetallic Nanoclusters as a Unique Catalyst (prof. Hidehiro Sakurai, Osaka University)

Recently we found that the bimetallic alloy nanoclusters exhibited totally different catalytic activity from the original single metal catalysts. These findings strongly suggest us that we have great opportunities to develop the novel reactions, which had never been realized by any types of catalysts, simply through the combination of the metals, as if it were modern alchemy. In this presentation I will demonstrate low-temperature carbon-chlorine bond activation by Au/Pd bimetallic system [1-6] and carbon-fluorine bond activation by Pd/Pt bimetallic system. Lecture takes place on Monday June 20th at 3 pm at Ch-2 Lecture Hall.

Start date Jun 20, 2016

Quo Vadis Chemie: Microfluidic assays for enhanced biochemical analysis

Quo Vadis Chemie: Microfluidic assays for enhanced biochemical analysis

Microfluidic biosensors have gained considerable attention in recent years, due to their potential to serve as future point-of-care diagnostic tools. However, despite significant technological advancements, achieving clinically-relevant sensitivity in short analysis time remains a major challenge for many applications. In particular, slow reaction kinetics remain a major bottleneck in the analysis of low sample concentrations. The lecture will be held by asst. prof. Moran Bercovici, Israel Institute of Technology.
