Combined with a drive to maximise atom economy, the need to perform 'clean' chemistry with minimal waste generation continues to attract the attention of synthetic chemists as the environmental impact of waste is becoming increasingly recognised and the costs associated with its disposal spiral. One of the best methods for minimising unwanted materials from a process is to perform a reaction without the addition of a chemical reagent. Thus reactions that that can be effected by the application of heat, light, sound or using electrolysis are particularly attractive. This one-day meeting organised by SCI Fine Chemicals Group brings together some of the leading practitioners in the field of 'reagentless synthesis' who will showcase their latest cutting-edge research in using the strategies for synthesis. The meeting will also highlight some of the recent developments in associated enabling technologies that facilitate the application reagentless strategies for synthesis.
