Dr. Robert Vianello Receives Promising Scientist Award for Applied Quantum Mechanics in Paris
Amid stiff competition and ten nominated candidates from Europe and the USA, RBI scientist Dr. Robert Vianello was awarded the Promising Scientist Award at the 15th international conference on Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics. The award was given by the Centre for applied quantum Mechanics in Paris for his significant contributions to the computational design of extremely strong superacids and superbases and insights into their properties.
The conference at which Dr. Vianello was presented the award was held from the 31st of August to the 5th of September at Cambridge University, UK. The conference was attended by 140 participants from all over the world, and included several leading scientists in the fields of quantum chemistry and physics. Dr. Vianello was an invited speaker and his talk was entitled One Group to Rule them All - Polycyano Organic Compounds are Record Holing Superacids.
This award recognizes the advances of Croatia's leading role in computational chemistry, and in particular the work of Croatian scientists at RBI.
