In September we usually have a fun group outing every year to welcome new members and students. Since these years are a bit different we had a small borrel outside in the sun at Linnaeusborg. Welcome all. Let's hope to do the group outing soon!
Picnic 2021 Adri with our secretary Janka organized a lovely picnic at the Dorkwerdsluis with some nice homemade snacks. We were very fortunate with the weather and had a great time with all of the Stratingh members in Linnaeusborg.
On 5-6 July 2021 there will be an European Symposium on Organic Chemistry (ESOC) . Have a look at our postdoc dr. Niels Reintjens talking about 'Protection Group-Free Reductive Chlorination and Thiolation of Glycosides via Trityl Hydrazones'.
Mira will defend her thesis titled: “On the Total Synthesis of Archaeal and Mycobacterial Natural Products” on the 5th of February at 12:45pm. The ceremony can be followed online via this link: https://www.rug.nl/about-ug/latest-news/events/promoties/digital-phd-ceremony
Every year we have SinterKerst, with lots of games, gifts and pepernoten. This year we could not end the year without it and some great group members recreated our labs and offices in online platform GatherTown. We had a lot of fun with the creative online pubquiz (Team Minnaard won!) , and enjoyed our snackbag [...]
Steven will defend his thesis titled: "Novel methods towards rare sugars based on site-selective chemistry" on the 5th of January at 11:00. The ceremony can be followed online via this link: https://www.rug.nl/about-ug/latest-news/events/promoties/digital-phd-ceremony
Our group member Ruben Andringa presented his poster "Total synthesis of macrocyclic archaeal lipids and mycoketide" this year online at the annual Dutch Conference CHemistry as INnovative Science (CHAINS) We also cheered on members from our ChemBioII-group ; Isabel Sieders "Tuning bi-electrophilic probes to generate protein selectivity"(Witte group) and Liubov Yakovlieva "Pd-catalyzed C3-selective oxidation of [...]
