Synopsis
SCI's Fine Chemicals Group and the RSC's Applied Catalysis Group are pleased to announce this one-day bienn ial symposium - Challenges in Catalysis for Pharmaceuticals and Fine chemicals VI. The aim of this meeting, well-supported both by industry and academia is to debate the current developments in catalysis, where they are going and what industry needs. An exciting line up of leading academic and industrial scientists will present a series of lectures covering areas such as C-H activation, photochemical reactions, reaction kinetics, base metal reactivity and new catalytic methods.
