WORKSHOPS/CONFERENCES:

1994                Two Workshops on Cluster Reaction and Catalysis, organized by ESF (European Science Foundation), were attended. The first one was held at University Rovira i Vigili, Spain. The lectures were given by many renowned scientists. The topics of lectures were mechanisms of cluster reactivity-surface/cluster analogy, elementary steps of C-C bond formation and C-C bond cleavage on small metal particles, and introducing localized metal-metal bond polarity into large cluster frameworks-Osmium-Mercury clusters, their systematic build-up and structural modification.

 

1994                The second workshop was held at the Isle of  Thorns Training Center, Chelwood Gate, Sussex, England. It was organized by Prefessor D.M.P.Mingos and theoretical aspects of cluster chemistry was discussed. The lectures were given on cluster with interstitial atoms, cluster with -donar ligands, graphical representations of molecular orbital calculations and skeletal and related rearrangements in clusters.
