We are proud to present our silly greeting video that hopefully tunes you into celebrating the International Workers’ Day 2021! Hauskaa vappua!
Ari, Anssi, Pasi and Åbo Akademi’s project researcher Risto Savela discovered new information about the functionality of vanadium aminophenolates in cathecol oxidation. The article is published in Dalton Transactions and was selected to their HOT article collection. Good job!
Press release (in Finnish):
Turun Sanomat, the biggest local newspaper in the Turku area, has a popular science-related article series called Aliot. Mika and Ari wrote about inorganic chemistry in a manner that everyday reader can grasp.
The writing is themed Even inorganic is organic – sustainable development with new materials, and it is available here (only in Finnish):
It seems that the natural hackmanite article published in Chemistry of Materials has spread wider than we could ever imagine. It has now been found in 17 different sources from 5 different language regions throughout the world, and there will probably be even more during the coming months.
Check the links from this list:
We wrote a press release based on our hackmanite research article in the high-impact Chemistry of Materials journal. The news was published on University of Turku’s website, and it spread instantly to Finland’s biggest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat and also to a Turku-based newspaper Aamuset:
Tutkijat selvittivät, miksi luonnonkivi loistaa pimeässä – Hackmaniitin ytimessä hehkuu titaani – Helsingin Sanomat 23/10/2020
Pimeässä loistavan luonnonkiven salaisuus selvisi tuoreessa tutkimuksessa – Aamuset 23/10/2020
To celebrate the five-year anniversary of Inorganic Materials Chemistry group at the University of Turku – and to pass the time during these social distancing times – we created the IMC theme song. The current IMC group and alumni joined forces to bring you joy in the darkening autumn of Finland. Enjoy! Warning: flashy lights and fast images!
Turun Sanomat, the biggest local newspaper, asked for photos of readers’ face masks. We saw an opportunity there to show our new face masks with our logo on them:
Today we had a communications team from The Farmers’ Social Insurance Institution Mela taking photos of IMC’s laboratories. The people admiring the IMC’s Chemistree, from left to right: Mela’s Mikko Käkelä and Julia von Flittner and our Adjunct Professor Ari Lehtonen. Missing from the photo: Mela’s Virve Laine and the mannequin, PhD student Sami Vuori. The stock photos will be published later, so stay tuned!
Variety of news covers the development of new hackmanite based SensoGlow material that can be used in detecting UV exposure on their www pages. Unfortunately most of them are only in Finnish.
