Felipe García: "Main Group Mechanochemistry: Challenges and Opportunities for a Sustainable Society"
We are pleased to announce the invited talk given by Felipe García, Margarita Salas Senior Researcher of Univerdad de Oviedo. The talk title is: "Main Group Mechanochemistry: Challenges and Opportunities for a Sustainable Society" The event will take place on March, 4. 11 AM at the Martina Casiano Auditorium. Traditionally, solution-based processes have dominated laboratory set-ups and industrial manufacturing protocols. However, the past decade has seen the renaissance of solid-state synthetic routes, driven by the need for more sustainable chemical processes. Within this context, mechanochemistry (i.e., chemical transformations initiated or sustained by mechanical force) has rapidly evolved from being a laboratory curiosity to a widely applicable synthetic technique that not only enables greener chemical transformations but offers exciting opportunities for the synthesis and screening of molecules and materials. This seminar will focus on the recent developments in reactive mechanochemistry of main group compounds and materials. The novel application of mechanochemistry to the synthesis of phosphorus-nitrogen frameworks – from orthogonal synthesis to “unattainable” molecules – will be discussed, followed by their implementation in the rational design of high-order organic-inorganic hybrid multicomponent cocrystalaline materials. This will be followed by a discussion on the challenges facing the broader adoption of mechanochemistry in industry, with a focus on the upscaled synthesis of metal complexes and perovskite materials. In addition, the advantages offered by mechanochemistry in the synthesis of planar and non-planar “nano-graphenes” will also be introduced. The event can be also be followed online via Teams through this link: https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_ZWFiNWU4ZmEtOGQyNi00MTg0LTk2YmQtNWNjNjk1ZWI0M2Uy%40thread.v2/0?context=%7b%22Tid%22%3a%222f54ab68-83af-4d70-8895-a0d1e95ec899%22%2c%22Oid%22%3a%22bf8c59fd-187e-4a18-ac49-c2a36f44723c%22%2c%22IsBroadcastMeeting%22%3atrue%7d&btype=a&role=a
