Workshop: Beyond Plan B: Post PhD careers in an age of uncertainty »

9am 10 October 2018

A/Prof Inger Mewburn (the Thesis Whisper) will be coming to the RSC on Wednesday the 10th of October to deliver a workshop on career development. The workshop will be targeted at PhD students, but everyone is welcome to attend! This is a great opportunity to find out more about how to prepare yourself for a career after your PhD (or Honours year), be it in academia or otherwise. The workshop will run from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm on Wednesday 10th October in Room 3.104, Building 138. Morning tea will be provided.

2018 ANU Chemistry Society Chemistry Ball »

8pm 5 October 2018

The Annual Chemistry Society Ball being held at the National Press Club is our largest-scaled social evening which brings together the diverse undergraduate, research community and academics within chemistry for a night of networking, fostering new-links and meeting new people. Featuring a 3-course meal, a drinks package (covering both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) and musical entertainment, it is definitely a night of fun and socialising before the end of semester deadlines.  Member: $90  Non-Members / Non-ANU students: $100

Professor Herbert Mayr - Philicities, Fugalities and Equilibrium Constants »

12pm 5 October 2018

Our understanding of polar organic reactivity is based on relationships between rate and equilibrium constants. Thus, strong bases are generally considered to be good nucleophiles as well as poor nucleofuges. Though exceptions from this general rule have long been known, a systematic analysis has been problematic, because rate constants for the reactions of nucleophiles with C-centered electrophiles have often been correlated with Brønsted basicities (i. e., affinities towards the proton).

Click-and-Release: Dissociative Bioorthogonal Chemical Reactions for Drug Delivery and Diagnostics »

12pm 20 September 2018

Bioorthogonal chemical reactions have been utilised in bioconjugation and imaging strategies. While these reactions could be considered as “click-and-stick” type reactions, our group is interested in taking advantage of a “click-and-release” type strategy for controlled drug delivery and diagnostic applications. To achieve sufficient activation in vivo, the initial reaction must be fast and the drug must dissociate from the linker to exert its biological response.
