Heading down under for top flight molecular magnetism workshops

Published: 5 November 2013

Chemistry at the University of Southampton is joining forces with leading researchers in Australia and New Zealand to further research into molecular magnetism.

Chemists Dr Tony Keene and Dr Jon Kitchen have secured funding from the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) to hold four days of workshops for up to 70 researchers at the University of Sydney on 17-20 February 2014. Both have experience of collaborative ventures with leading magnetochemists in Australia and New Zealand and hope the event will foster networks in the region and beyond.

"Although molecular magnetism is a long-established field of inorganic chemistry, it still has much to offer researchers," explains Tony. "It could help improve data storage through increasing the speed of data storage while reducing the space needed."

Tony and Jon are keen to encourage students to attend the workshop from undergraduate to postdoctoral levels. Sessions will include tutorials on the basics of molecular magnetism, measurement techniques, data analysis and sample preparation.
