The Chile-Japan Academic Forum 2016 which brings together University of Tokyo-Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Universidad de Chile will take place at Victor Pillon Auditorium, Faculty of Chemistry, San Joaquin Campus on November 11th from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. The title of this workshop is: "Frontiers of Sustainable Materials" and it will be enhanced by the participation of 4 professors from University of Tokyo:

1. Prof. Mitsuhiko Shionoya, Bioinorganic Chemistry: Synthetic and Enzymatic Construction of Metallo-DNA Supramolecular Chemistry: Molecular Containers, Metal-Macrocycle Frameworks, Molecular Machines Organometallic Chemistry: C-centered Metal Array.

2. Prof. Tatsuya Tsukuda Nanoscience and catalysis Physical chemistry

3. Associate Prof. Jun Okabayashi Magnetic materials Low energy consumption devices Characterization using x-ray spectroscopy

4. Assistant Prof. Ryota Sakamoto Low-dimensional nanomaterials based on coordination compounds Luminescent metal complexes





Seminar: "Photoswitches to control and drive chemistry, materials and devices by light"

On October the 6th, Prof.Dr.(Humboldt University of Berlin) Stefan Hecht presented a talk at Victor Pillon Auditorium in the Faculty of Chemistry. The seminar called "Photoswitches to control and drive chemistry, materials, and devices by light” gathered participation from professors and researcher from different Universities and Research Centers. Subsequently, Dr. Hecht had a meeting with the interested researchers. Dr. Hecht's visit was possible thanks to the ongoing collaboration between Dr. Flavia Zacconi and Dr. Lars Ratjen (UNAB-Fraunhofer Chile) and the activities done under the projects: Fondecyt N° 11140476, Fondecyt N° 11130595, Facultad de Química UC, and Research Center for Nanotechnoogy and Advanced Materials (CIEN-UC).
