After a very nice first contact with the chemical bonding community in Aachen, Germany in September 2017, I decided to attend the ESCB2 (Second European Symposium on Chemical Bonding) in Oviedo. The meeting will take place from September 3rd to 7th, but there will be a practical school on quantum chemical topology tools in chemical bonding just before the beginning of the conference. The programme has all the ingredients to give the audience what expected for a conference of this kind: bonding, bonding and more bonding… but some asturian sidra as well, I hope!
I will present some recent works related to alkaline-earth one electron-three center bonds, which are key for the ability of some derivatives to present electron affinities among the largest reported for neutral closed shell systems.
See you in Oviedo!
