1st Symposium on Radical Chemistry (Bern-SRC)

1st Symposium on Radical Chemistry (Bern-SRC)

Radical chemistry has a long and successful history in Switzerland with prominent scientists, such as Rolf Scheffold, Hanns Fischer, and Bernd Giese, who have largely contributed to the development and the success of radical chemistry. The spectacular development in this field over the last two decades has prompted to organize a biannual symposium to regularly highlight the latest advances in the domain. The symposium is intended for participants from both academia and industry.

The scientific programme includes 5 plenary lectures, 14 invited lectures, and 2 poster sessions with world-leading speakers focused on modern aspects of synthetic organic chemistry using free radicals.


Public Session

The last session of the first day, including the lectures of Prof. Bernd Giese, Prof. Samir Zard, and the Paracelsus Prize Winner 2024, Prof. Armido Studer is open for the public without registration. Please join us on June 27 at 16.25h.
