Hot Topics in Organic Chemistry; 20th Annual Review Meeting Dec 11 2013
Conference: United Kingdom

This 20th Annual Review Symposium organised by the SCI Young Chemists’ Panel will focus on two key areas of synthetic organic chemistry.
We have an exciting line up of leading academics, who will deliver a series of lectures based on two hot topics in synthesis; the development of novel catalytic and stereoselective processes and the Synthesis of novel heterocyclic scaffolds. The meeting will deliver a comprehensive overview, highlighting new methods and reviewing the latest applications and concepts in these areas. These lectures will be supported by two keynote speakers from the UK & Europe.
