Catalytic Sustainability in the Future

Catalysis is central to achieving the aims of Dial-a-Molecule, but the precious metals used in many catalytic cycles won't last forever. Join us at our meeting in Manchester to discuss the challenges and opportunities involved with developing the catalysts of tomorrow.

Experimental Design: An Essential Skill for Chemists II

An event aimed at promoting the education and deployment of Statistical Methods and Principle Component Analysis in Academia. Join us on the 8th of December to hear about progress since the May meeting, evaluate options for funding and implementation of a Statistical methods programme for chemists and refine plans for the next steps

Applying Statistical Methods to Chemistry Research – Call For Proposals

The Dial-a-Molecule EPSRC Grand Challenge Network is calling for collaborative proposals to enhance/speed up existing chemistry research projects through the application of statistical methods. Applications are now closed.

Computational Prediction of Reaction Outcomes and Optimum Synthetic Routes

We are now living and working in an information age – but is synthetic chemistry taking full advantage of the large amounts of experimental data routinely available and the computing power available to enrich and manipulate it? Learn more about the upcoming workshop we are hosting to discuss the challenges associated with data usage in synthetic chemistry MEETING REPORT IS NOW AVAILABLE

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
