This conference will showcase exceptional research from final year PhD students and provides the opportunity to network and share ideas. The subjects covered will be wide ranging within organic chemistry such as synthesis, mechanistic studies, methodology, medicinal chemistry or analysis and computational.


The majority of attendees are expected to be academic and industrial researchers including postgraduate students who will be presenting their work, but this event is open to all and free to attend. 

The event will be run as a hybrid event which allows remote attendance in addition to in person attendance. Please select only one option when registering (in-person OR online attendance).

Call for papers

Contributions are invited from those working in all areas of organic and medicinal chemistry.
