Advances in Hydrogen Molecular Ions: H3+, H5+ and beyond

We have been contacted by a representative of The Royal Society on behalf of the scientific organisers (Professor Jonathan Tennyson FRS, Professor Benjamin McCall, Professor Steven Miller) about an upcoming scientific meeting taking place at the Royal Society entitled 'Advances in Hydrogen Molecular Ions: H3+, H5+ and beyond' which may be of interest to some members.

This meeting, which takes place on 21 - 22 January 2019, will highlight recent developments in theoretical, laboratory and astronomical studies of the molecular ion H3+ and its hydrogenated cousin H5+ These developments include the first models of H5+, high-resolution studies of H3+ deuterated isotopologues, ultra-cold chemistry studies, new chemical models of the Galactic Centre, and data from the space missions Cassini (Saturn) and JUNO (Jupiter).

Registration for this meeting is free. it will take place at The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG.
