2017 RACI Physical Chemistry Division Lectureship awarded to Lars Goerigk

The Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) awarded Dr Lars Goerigk the 2017 RACI Physical Chemistry Division Lectureship.

With this lectureship the Physical Chemistry Division of RACI allows outstanding early- and mid-career physical or theoretical chemists to tour Australia to present their research work. The lectureship will be officially awarded at the upcoming RACI Centenary Congress in Melbourne in July.

Article in Angewandte Chemie

Our recent collaborative efforts with the Ritchie and O’Hair groups have been published in Angewandte Chemie.

We present a novel way of synthesising Mo-V polyanions, which had not been experimentally accessible before, by using microwaves. Our quantum-chemical calculations were important in understanding the resulting structures and their distribution.
