It is a great pleasure for us to announce the IVth International Workshop on Transition Metal Clusters (IWTMC IV), which will be held in Novosibirsk (Russia) from September 8th to September 11th, 2014.

The International Workshop on Transition Metal Clusters is an international conference organized every two years which was conceived as a forum to strengthen collaborations between cluster chemists. Previous editions were held in Rennes (France), Rostock (Germany) and Benicassim (Castellón, Spain).

Within IWTMC-IV IDEMAT 2 French-Rusian Seminar “Metal Atom Cluster Hybrid Materials : from Solid State Compounds to Applicative Nanomaterials” will take place.

Goal of seminar is brainstorming on cluster chemistry to give high level lessons to master and PhD students that could attend the conference for free.

Participants 5 french and 5 Russian:

  • French side: S. Cordier, JY Saillard (Theory), B. Fabre (Functional surfaces), P. Braunstein (organométtalics), N .Audebrand (MOF))
  • Russian side: V.P.Fedin (MOFs), N.G. Naumov (Heterometal clusters), V.E. Fedorov (Metal clusters) , S.N. Konchenko (Organometallics), M.S. Sokolov (Polyoxometallates).
Topics of the Workshop

Topics will include inorganic and hybrid cluster compounds, cluster functionalization, molecular and supramolecular assemblies, nanomaterials, cluster-based catalysis and activation, MOFs, quantum chemistry, functional surfaces, clusters in biology and medicine etc.
