We are looking for two new PhD students!
One student will have the opportunity to work on Novel Routes to Crystal Engineering: Controlling Crystallization through Ionic Liquids. The other student will work on Ionic Liquids as a Transformative Tool in Nanosynthesis.
Follow the links to learn more about the projects and how to apply. The application deadline is 1st February 2022.
A big thank you to the Carlsberg Foundation who just announced that AVM will receive an infrastructure grant to purchase a new research-grade spectrofluorimeter! As part of AVM’s green transition research, the spectrofluorimeter will be used to evaluate new materials and enable the next generation of energy efficient, environmentally benign lighting.
AVM was privileged to be on the panel discussion during the 2021 Volvo Environment Prize award ceremony honoring Paul Anastas and his contributions to #greenchemistry. You can watch the panel discussion here.
Just out in JACS: Shape Preserving Single Crystal to Amorphous to Single Crystal Polymorphic Transformation Is Possible. These fundamental insights into the mechanism of solid-solid phase transitions were made possible by the transatlantic collaboration between the Rogers and the Mudring groups.
Another new publication, this time with collaborator Cláudia C.L. Pereira from Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal on Lanthanide-based complexes as efficient physiological temperature sensors.
AVM will present in Day 2 of the 2nd Green Chemistry Symposium is on December 10th, 2021. 7 am-12 pm CET / 1-6 pm SGT / 4-9 pm AEST.

Our recent research work published in PNAS is the result of a long standing collaboration with colleagues from Ames Laboratory and the first paper with AVM’s new colleagues from the Department of Chemistry at Aarhus University. You can read the paper here: First-order antiferromagnetic transitions of SrMn2P2 and CaMn2P2 single crystals containing corrugated-honeycomb Mn sublattices.
As always, it has been a pleasure to collaborate with our friends and colleagues from ILL, the Ames Laboratory and University of Genova.
Results of this collaboration are found in our latest publication: Crystal and Magnetic Structures of the Ternary Ho2Ni0.8Si1.2 and Ho2Ni0.8Ge1.2 Compounds: An Example of Intermetallics Crystallizing with the Zr2Ni1–xP Prototype
