Steering Committee Meeting

NordCO2 had their second steering committee meeting this year on Nov. 20th. This time it took place at the lovely offices of iNANO at Århus University. The steering committee discussed next years conferences, positions, the exchange program, publications, future open science approaches and much more.

CADIAC meeting 2018

NordCO2 was participating in the annual meeting 2018 of the CO2 activation center CADIAC at Århus University, November 19-20. As usual, the meeting took place by the sea and featured outstanding talks on organic, organometallic and heterogeneous CO2 conversion. Several NordCO2 PIs presented their work, including Egill, Mårten, Annette, Ainara, and Timo.

Successful NordCO2 Course

Tthe NordCO2 consortium organized a great course on ‘Mechanisms for CO2 activation’ at UiT (September 12-14).
22 students from UiB, UiO, UU, UiT, AU and KTH joined, with lecturers coming from all the Nordic Countries (Denmark, Iceland, Sween, Finland and Norway).

Protonolysis of hemiaminals is a key step in the amine catalyzed reduction of CO2 to methanol. A team led by Ainara Nova have gathered new insights to the mechanism of this step. Read more about the research HERE.
