Molecular Inorganic Chemistry Meetings


Group meetings in the Molecular Inorganic Chemistry group are on Tuesdays at 9:00. The location varies (see schedule that will be prepared biannually and distributed to the group members by e-mail). There are two types of meetings: research and literature meetings (see below). Group meetings are not voluntary and each group member, including BSc and MSc students, is expected to participate and present on a regular basis. The current schedule is available at the bottom of the page.

Research meetings

The objective of the research meetings is to advance the ongoing research in the group. During these meetings one group member at a time presents his/her latest research results. In order to gain the most from these meetings it is important that as much information as possible is presented and that the presentation focuses in part on the problems that were faced during the research project.

Whereas one group member is presenting at a time and the presentations are generally structured as a research talk that one would present at a conference, the Molecular Inorganic Chemistry group meetings are informal in nature. During the presentation, group members are encouraged to start discussions on the presented work or ask questions.

Discussions are highly stimulated and remember: if you don't understand the work that is being presented, there is a good chance that you are not the only one and that further discussions may be necessary.

Literature meetings

One out of every three or four group meetings a paper from the recent literature will be discussed. The objective of these meetings is to broaden our horizon and to discuss interesting developments in the field of molecular inorganic chemistry. Each literature meeting, one paper that will be picked bye the presenter, will be discussed. Typically a number of background articles will be discussed as well, to support or explain the results discussed in the main paper.


  1. Each member of the Molecular Inorganic Chemistry is expected to actively participate in the group meetings.
  2. A schedule will be made and distributed biannually.
  3. If you are unable to present you are responsible to find a replacement.
  4. At the beginning of group meeting there is room for announcements, and at the end of the meeting one can discuss lab related issues.
