Past Webinar: F-block catalysts for the catalytic conversion of dinitrogen, carbon dioxide, and carbon oxygenates under mild conditions with Prof. Polly L Arnold (UC Berkeley)

When: 23 June, 16:00 – Watch Now The subtleties of structure and bonding in compounds of the rare earths (Group 3 and the lanthanides) and actinides are still poorly-understood. However, their complexes can exhibit strong and tuneable Lewis acidity, high and tuneable reduction capacity, and the capacity for rapid ligand…
