27 January 2021 Catalysts Webinar | Recent Advances in Computational Catalysis II


Computational catalysis has been one of the most dynamic research fields over the last decade, and it now represents a critical tool for the analysis of chemical mechanisms and active sites. The growth in this area has been accelerated by steady improvements in computational speed and a maturation of robust software tools, providing opportunities for more realistic models and the application of powerful analysis techniques. As the field of computational catalysis continues to expand, the gap between model and reality is beginning to narrow. More effort is now focused on capturing secondary effects (structural defects, solvation environment, deactivation events, thermal distortions, etc.), extending the time scales, and incorporating machine learning and descriptor-based methods for catalyst screening.

The following experts will present and speak:

  • Prof. Dr. C. Heath Turner, University of Alabama, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Gregori Ujaque, Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Spain
  • Dr. José R. B. Gomes, University of Aveiro, Portugal
  • Prof. Dr. Konstantinos D. Vogiatzis, University of Tennessee, USA

When? 27 January 2021 at 4.00pm CET | 9.00am CST

18 February 2021 Catalysts Webinar | Methyltransferases, Understanding and Application


The methylation of alcohols or amines is straightforward undergraduate chemistry. Yet at the same time, it is a prime example of everything that is wrong with chemistry. The reagents are toxic and often cancerogeneous, they have to be used in stoichiometric quantities and even in excess. Consequently, methylation is high on the list of reactions for which a catalytic and environmentally benign approach needs to be found. Methyltransferases are enzymes that will enable exactly this. Therefore, in recent year, much research has focussed on the application of methyltransferases. As they need a co-factor also the benign recycling of the co-factor needs to be addressed. In this webinar, all aspects of methylation catalysed by methyltransferases will be addressed by outstanding experts in the field.

The following experts will present and speak:

  • Prof. Dr. Ulf Hanefeld, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
  • Prof. Dr. Jennifer Andexer, University of Freiburg, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Helen Hailes, University College London, UK
  • Prof. Dr. Glenn Burley, University of Strathclyde, UK

When? 18 February 2021 at 12.00pm CET

14–15 June 2021 Scholars International Conference on Catalysis and Chemical Engineering

Rome, Italy

Scholars Conferences is proud to announce the highly anticipated “Scholars International Conference on Catalysis and Chemical Engineering” (CATCHEM) to be held on June 14–15, 2021 in Rome, Italy. The conference program consists of world-class keynote addresses and industry-led presentations, as well as extensive networking opportunities, creating an interactive platform for high-level scientific and business discussions.

Over 100+ delegates representing leading universities, colleges, institutes, organizations, companies, and internationally renowned research and academic institutions will be present at our prestigious conference.

The CATCHEM conference will provide a global networking opportunity for researchers, industrialists, and start-up companies to gain valuable advice and insight from other attendees. CATCHEM create a stage for exchanging the latest research results and sharing advanced research methods.

CATCHEM will be a valuable and important platform for inspiring international and interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of catalysis. Over the course of two days, internationally renowned speakers will describe how their research journey has developed in response to contemporary challenges with inspirational lessons in chemical initiatives and creativity. The attending experts and industry partners will also provide a fantastic networking experience. The conference will bring together academicians, chemists, scientists, and engineers/technicians from all over the world, and we hope that you will take this opportunity to join us for academic exchange and visit the city of Rome.
