Practical Catalysis - Streamlined Organic Synthesis

View Full Event Details

This course comprises lectures and problem sessions designed to illustrate how state-of-the-art catalytic methods can be applied to practical issues in small molecule synthesis.The content will focus on problems and targets relevant to pharmaceutical and agrochemical and fine chemical interests. An emphasis will be placed on practical solutions.
