elnItemManifest – A metadata schema for accessing and processing ELN records

In order to exploit the vast body of currently inaccessible chemical information held in Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) it is necessary not only to make it available but also to develop protocols for discovery, access and ultimately automatic processing. The ability to draw on the body of accumulated chemical knowledge in order to predict or

X-ray absorption spectroscopy: New Insights at the Interface between Homogeneous, Heterogeneous and Hybrid Catalysis

X-ray absorption spectroscopy: New Insights at the Interface between Homogeneous, Heterogeneous and Hybrid Catalysis

19th-20th September 2013 at STFC RAL near DLS. Sponsored by Dial-a-Molecule and the UK Catalysis Hub, this two-day symposium will bring together UK and international researchers interested in the application of X-ray methods to accelerating synthetic research in the remit of the Dial-a-Molecule Grand Challenge goals. Day One will feature lectures from catalysis and synchrotron practitioners with a particular emphasis on the role of clusters and nanoparticles in synthesis. Day Two will provide an interactive forum for attendees of all backgrounds and levels of synchrotron experience (including complete newcomers!) to foster new collaborations, and formulate interdisciplinary research grant and beamtime proposals. Researchers from both industry and academia are most welcome to attend.
