In 2016 the Helmholtz-Center Dresden-Rossendorf, Institute of Resource Ecology had the great pleasure to host the 10th Biometals Conference from July 10th to July 15th in Dresden. With 120 participants from more than 20 countries, this conference was a great success.
This conference is the most important symposium about metal species in living biota and has already a long tradition. The conference series started in 1997 in Calgary (Canada) and since 2000 it became a biannual meeting.
Due to the 10th conference anniversary we expect contributors from all continents and we will be anxious that this meeting becomes successful and that the participants get enduring memories.
Advanced Techniques in Actinide Spectroscopy (ATAS) 2014
Complementary application of various spectroscopic techniques and their combination with theoretical approaches can lead to a more profound understanding of structures, thermo dynamics and kinetics of actinide complex formation. The workshop focuses on recent advances in actinide chemistry from both a spectroscopic and theoretical point of view. It covers vibrational spectroscopy (IR and Raman), laser-induced spectroscopy (luminescence and photoacoustic), X-ray based spectroscopies (XAS, XPS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectrometries (AMS, ESI MS), and quantum chemical calculations.
