Electron Transfer and Electrochemistry of Inorganic and Organometallic Materials (#126)

Electron transfer events and electrochemical reactions play significant roles in various fields of inorganic and organometallic chemistry. The past four decades have seen a growing interest in the area of transition metal-containing materials and their combinations with other substrates such as metal surface, biomolecules, polymers, dendrimers, nanoparticles, and so on. This endeavor stems from the interesting electron-transfer based catalytic, magnetic, electrical, optical, and biological properties that these materials may possess. There is an increasing number of research groups from the pacific nations and the rest of the world with special interest in basic and applied research on the electron transfer and electrochemical reactions of inorganic and organometallic materials. The focus of this symposium will be on: 1) Design and synthesis of new electro-functional inorganic and organometallic materials and their hybrid systems. 2) Electrochemical, spectroscopic and other analytical techniques of electron transfer events. 3) Biological electron transfer and its related systems. 4) Molecular electronics.
