Synthesis from the Six Nations II Oct 7 2015
Symposium: United Kingdom [in English]

The Synthesis from the Six Nations II symposium will focus on exciting synthetic chemistry from around Europe. Synthetic chemistry is a core technology that underpins research and development in fields such as medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical process development and agrochemicals and is also a major area of academic research. The breadth and speed of progress in the field will be probed by bringing together six high profile academics whose cutting edge research covers the spectrum of synthetic organic chemistry, including synthetic methodologies, invention of new catalysts and total synthesis of bioactive natural products. The Six Nations theme allows the organisers to invite an eminent and diverse panel of speakers from England, Ireland, France, Wales, Scotland and Italy.
