Advances in Organocatalysis

This event runs back to back with Spotlight on Photoredox Catalysis and Photochemistry

Organised by:

SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
The Advances in Organocatalysis meeting aims to showcase recent advances in this increasingly dynamic area. In recent years, the application of organocatalysis to solve synthetic problems has gained traction in both industrial and academic settings due to the plethora of catalyst classes and diverse activation modes available. Our line-up of international experts comprises speakers from both academia and industry to highlight the contemporary progress towards improved practical applicability and mechanistic understanding in this fast-moving field.
Attendees

This meeting is ideal for students and researchers working in any area with an interest in synthetic organic chemistry who want to discover more about the variety of applications for organocatalysts. In particular, researchers who are working on the method development or who are looking towards commercial applications.

This event runs back to back with Spotlight on Photoredox Catalysis and Photochemistry
