A Celebration of Organic Chemistry Sep 22-23 2014
Conference: United Kingdom [in English]

Amongst other applications, organic chemistry is a key technology for the discovery of pharmaceutically useful agents, agrochemicals, molecular switches and for the
synthesis of natural products in both academic and industrial research; indeed it is the keystone of fine chemical research and development.

This is the sixth meeting in the series and will include talks by leading UK, US and European academics including Prof Paul Knochel, Prof Ben Feringa and Prof Peter Wipf. The meeting will therefore be of immense value to scientists who wish to be informed of the latest developments in this field of research.

This meeting will prove of particular interest to scientists engaged in the development or application of organic synthetic chemistry methodology. It will also prove of interest to any scientist wishing to be informed of the latest developments in this field of research.
