During the last 3 days, the whole team was communicating with the Viennese public at the Wiener Forschungsfest (Vienna Science Festival). We explained various aspects of color chemistry – ranging from the origin of color to dye synthesis and the use of dyes for cell labelling – illustrated by several hands-on experiments. [Read more]
On the occasion of the Austrian Science Funds 50th anniversary, the science festival BeOpen is held this week. Today, Miriam participated in two events at BeOpen: the panel discussion on “pioneering spirit”, and the science slam on the theme “failure in science”. Miriam won the science slam – congratulations from the whole team! [Read more]
The magazine Wien Wissen, magazine on science by the city of Vienna, just published a feature on our booth on color chemistry at the upcoming “Wiener Forschungsfest” (Vienna Science Fair), which will be held from September 12-15. We are looking forward to interacting with the public! [Read more]
We are very happy that Hipassia M. Moura (Postdoc) and Olivier Gazil (visiting MSc student) joined our team. Both will be working on hydrothermal synthesis, Hipassia in the framework of our FWF START project “The hydrothermal route to functional covalent organic frameworks”, and Olivier funded by a MITACS Canada fellowship. Welcome to both! [Read more]
This week, Tobia will be attending the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS) Meeting in Lljubljana. He will be presenting a poster entitled: “Synthesis of Anisometric Polyhedral Homopolymer Particles”. [Read more]
