From 5 to 5:20 pm, Avijit Roy will first give a talk about "Synthesis of Counteranion-Stabilized Bis(silylium) Ions" (see abstract here). His talk will be followed by a Q/A session, as usual. Avijit is an EC2/BIG-NSE PhD student from the WS18 batch. He is currently writing his PhD under the supervision of Martin Oestreich, and is funded by a EC2/BIG-NSE scholarship. He comes from Calcutta in India. He studied chemistry at the University of Burdwan to accomplish his bachelor, and then moved to IIT Kharagpur for his master education. After the EC2/BIG-NSE initial phase at the end of 2018, he joined Martin Oestreich's group for his PhD in January 2019.
After his talk, expectedly from approximately 5:30 to 5:50pm, Liangliang Zhang will give a talk about "C(vinylsp2, sp3)—Si bond formation through catalytic cross-coupling reactions and asymmetric silly addition reactions" (see abstract here). His talk will be followed by a Q/A session, as usual. Liangliang is an EC2/BIG-NSE PhD student from the WS17 batch. He is currently writing his PhD thesis under the supervision of Martin Oestreich, and is funded by a CSC scholarship. He comes from the Shandong Province in China. He studied chemistry at Shandong Normal University and Xiamen University to accomplish his bachelor and master education, respectively. After the EC2/BIG-NSE initial phase at the end of 2017, he joined Martin Oestreich's group for his PhD in January 2018.
The EC2/BIG-NSE symposium represents a new series of scientific presentations given by our EC2/BIG-NSE PhD students (see schedule of the coming months here). In the coming months, on several Wednesday afternoons, two students will thus give an online talk from approximately 5-6 pm (20 min presentation each + 10 mn Q/A). The symposium takes place online using Zoom. The access to the event is restricted to members of UniSysCat. The Zoom Link will be sent to them on Thursday morning, May 6.
ATTENTION: In case you are a UniSysCat member of TU-Berlin and did not receive the link due to the current problems with the IT systems at this university, please contact me at the following address to get the link sent:
