Due to the uncertainty with the global Covid-19 pandemic situation, the organizing committee has opted to go-ahead with the conference BUT, as a mixed conference, in person (with a limited number of participants) and on-line (webinar).

The conference will focus on key topics
in contemporary organic, organometallic, polymer synthesis and catalysis, which are of relevance to both academic and industrial chemists alike. This is reflected in the topics that will bediscussed in the plenary lectures. The event focuses strongly on chemical synthesis with catalysis as one of the key enablers.


  • Total synthesis
  • Synthesis in Medicinal chemistry, chemical biology and materials science
  • New reagents, catalysts, strategies and concepts for organic synthesis
  • Biocatalysis in synthesis
  • Organocatalysis
