MCEC was represented at CHAINS2015 (30 November, 1&2 December) together with the other Dutch Gravitation programs in the field of chemical sciences:

  • The Research Center for Functional Molecular Systems (FMS) aims to gain a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms, structures, and chemical processes that lead to living systems.
  • The Institute for Chemical Immunology (ICI) brings together Chemistry and Immunology in the new field of Chemical Immunology to diagnose and treat diseases related to immune system failure via new, targeted chemical compounds.

The following MCEC members contributed to this event as keynote speaker, chair or speaker at several sessions: Albert van den Berg, Rosa Bulo, Emiel Hensen, Volker Hessel, Petra de Jongh, Evgeny Pidko

The following MCEC posters where presented:

Robin Broos (TU/e) “The effect of surface termination on direct CO dissociation over Hagg carbide”

Robin Geitenbeek (UU) “The effect of silica overgrowth on the temperature dependent luminescence of NaYF4:Yb3+/Er3+”

Teresa de Martino (TU/e) “Study of Novel Foam Cobalt based catalyst for Fischer-Tropsch reaction and reactor modeling”

Roderigh Rohling (TU/e) “Enzyme mimicking confinement-driven reactivity of zeolite catalysts in the Diels Alder Cycloaddition and dehydration reaction for biomass valorization”
