Catalysis without Precious Metals

Organised by:

SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Metal catalysts based on palladium, rhodium, iridium, ruthenium, and platinum are routinely used in industry and academia for various applications in fine chemical, pharmaceutical, and agrochemical synthesis. New suites of powerful catalytic techniques that rely on non-precious metals or on main group elements are being discovered, developed, and exploited in synthetic chemistry. This meeting will bring together researchers from academia and industry to learn more about these emerging synthetic methods and how they have been used in fine chemical synthesis.
This event will include research presentations from four leading academics and from representatives from two companies. Our academic colleagues will cover recent developments in the use of catalysts based on elements such as iron, boron, manganese, and cobalt. Our colleagues from industry will discuss the application of some of these techniques in successful commercial projects.
Attendees
This meeting is ideal for researchers working in any area of synthetic chemistry who want to find out more about the capabilities and applications of non-precious metals in catalysis. In particular, researchers who are working on the development of methods in this area, or who are looking to apply these methods in commercial projects, are encouraged to attend.
