Organic Materials: New Opportunities for Synthetic Chemists

Organised by:

SCI's Fine Chemicals Group

RSC Burlington House, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
The application of organic materials to contemporary technological contexts has mushroomed in the last decade. Organic electronics, organic LEDs, organic photovoltaics have all developed commercially and scientifically during this time. The progress made has relied on accessing molecules with improved physical properties. Accordingly, progress is dependent upon the marriage of synthetic endeavour with physical assessment. The future growth of this area will offer exciting opportunities for synthetic chemists seeking new challenges and materials scientists seeking new synthetic solutions.
Attendees
Synthetic chemists looking for a general understanding of the area and new opportunities.
Postgraduate materials chemists looking for an overview of their area.
