The Chemistry of the Platinum Group Metals
Following the very successful meeting held in Bristol in 1981, a second international conference on this topic is to be held in Edinburgh from July 1–6, 1984, organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The chemistry of the six platinum group metals will be discussed in sessions devoted to aspects of photochemistry, electrochemistry, kinetics and mechanisms, industrial applications of thermochemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, and organometallic and cluster chemistry. In addition the use of platinum group metal compounds in organic synthesis and in medicine, and current developments in physical techniques such as EXAFS, resonance Raman spectroscopy, and solid state NMR will be considered.
Among distinguished scientists who have already agreed to contribute are Bosnich, Brown, Calvert, Chatt, Clark, Drury, Fyfe, Graham, Halpern, Porter, Sheppard, and Werner; anyone wishing to contribute to the poster sessions, or to receive further information should contact the organising secretary, Dr. T. A. Stephenson, Department of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
