6–10 June 2010 XIII French-American Chemical Society Symposium (FACS XIII)

Obernai, France

Welcome to the 13th meeting of the French-American Chemical Society. This symposium will take place in France, in the heart of Alsace, located in the Center of Europe, historically and culturally rich. Throughout all these meetings, the very high calibre of scientific scholarship intended by the founders, Pierre Potier and E. J. Corey has been maintained and this year is no exception.

The first edition of this meeting was held in Paris in 1989 in a friendly and informal ambiance in order to encourage the maximum interaction between the participants of both countries. A number of famous chemists, coming from the US and France, participated and exchanged ideas with great enthusiasm. They appreciated the high quality and interactive nature of this meeting.

Unmistakably, spending this time together in this special environment allows for quality scientific discussions and exchanges, generates new opportunities for collaboration between academics and industry, and gives the chance to interact meaningfully with representatives from national and local chemistry companies. The traditional mix of confirmed and younger scientists from both university and industry environments has been an essential element in the success of this meeting which, hopefully, will continue for many years to come. This year again, we welcome students to participate in this meeting and we have also made a particular effort to facilitate their presence on the Conference site.

FACS XIII will be held under the sponsorship of the new University of Strasbourg (UDS) and the CNRS in Obernai, a charming village on the “wine road” in the heart of Alsace and a stone’s throw from Mont St Odile.

We invite you to come and participate in this special event that is held every other year, which we hope will be rewarded by a memorable and enriching interaction between friends and colleagues, while enhancing your knowledge of organic chemistry.

We wish you all, speakers and attendees alike, a highly stimulating Symposium, both scientifically and personally.

13–15 September 2010 Dalton Discussion 12: Catalytic C-H and C-X Bond Activation (DD12)

Durham University, UK

Introduction

Applications of late metal catalysed cross-coupling reactions, involving activation of C-X and C-H bonds (X = halogen), are common place in the synthesis of natural products, therapeutic agents, biological probes, and advanced materials.
Cross-coupling reactions can be simplified by removing the need for reactant prefunctionalisation, although historically this has been difficult to achieve selectively. The organometallic chemistry community has worked on this problem for many years (mainly from a mechanistic perspective), with important advances being made. Very recently (over the last five years or so) the organic community has begun to explore the opportunities for this chemistry in terms of synthetic applications. The synthetic community has recently been alerted to emerging, alternative technologies, and it is now clear that C-H functionalisation processes are set to transform modern synthetic chemistry, in some cases eliminating the need for substrate activation protocols.

Themes

The meeting will highlight the importance of catalytic bond activation in cross-coupling chemistry. The latest research will be presented and discussed.
Key topics that will be covered in the discussion meeting include:

  • Synthetic chemistry (including applications)
  • Inorganic and Organometallic chemistry
  • Reaction mechanism (physical organic and organometallic chemistry)
  • Transition metal catalysis
  • Applications of C-H and C-X bond activation in organic synthesis

Who should attend?

DD12 will bring together the organic, organometallic, and inorganic (coordination chemistry) communities from academia and industry to discuss the current state of the art, the development and future of late metal-catalysed cross-coupling strategies of C-X and C-H bonds.

22–24 August 2011 Ionic Liquids: Faraday Discussion 154

Belfast, UK

Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are currently the focus of an intense research effort because of their remarkable potential for applications coupled to favourable environmental properties. On a more fundamental level, RTILs constitute an important class of highly correlated Coulomb fluids whose molecular constituents are complex ions with tunable shape and size. The hybrid organic- ionic nature of RTILs and the resulting interplay between different intermolecular forces give rise to a complex phenomenology whose decoding requires the close integration of experimental, theoretical and computational methods.

This meeting will discuss fundamental experimental and theoretical aspects of the physical chemistry of RTILs.

5–9 September 2011 International Conference on Green Chemistry

Tallinn, Estonia

Today’s greater environmental awareness, tougher governmental regulations and climbing oil prices are all contributing to the re-shaping of the chemical industry.

Governments continue to struggle with balancing the needs of industry with their responsibilities to protect the environment and safeguard the public. Consumers too have become more sophisticated in their understanding of environmental issues and are more vocal in their demands for greener products. The dependency on oil and other fossil fuels has forced the industry to explore alternative energy and raw material sources. This has led to a higher need for innovative solutions that address both economic realities and environmental protection.

In September 2011, The Conference on Materials and Technologies for Green Chemistry in Tallinn will confront these issues head-on. We select an elite group of speakers and sponsors to showcase the latest research trends and emerging industry best practices that cover novel uses of natural resources that cause minimum waste and pollution.

The conference is bringing together Europe’s leading scientists from both academia and industry who are committed to finding technologies that not only ensure long-term economic success but also reduce the carbon footprint and dependency on non-renewable resources.On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, it is our pleasure to cordially invite all people involved in any aspect of studies and applications in chemistry leading towards sustainable development in science and technology to join us at the International Conference on Materials and Technologies for Green Chemistry

23–26 September 2013 EPNOE 2013: "POLYSACCHARIDES AND POLYSACCHARIDE-DERIVED PRODUCTS, FROM BASIC SCIENCE TO APPLICATIONS"

Nice, France

EPNOE and the Cellulose and Renewable Materials division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) decided in 2011 to join their efforts in promoting basic and applied sciences of polysaccharides by organising common events. The 3rd EPNOE conference, EPNOE 2013, is thus jointly organised by EPNOE and ACS.

Polysaccharides are vital polymers for all aspects of the life of human beings, used for health care and food and in a large variety of materials, especially owing to the huge development of bio-based products. They are at the forefront of most research due to their renewable character and their low carbon footprint. However, due to the complexity of their synthesis in Nature, to the difficulty in dis-assembling them, to the highly multidisciplinary character of polysaccharide research and to the very large variety of applications, there is a need for organizing conferences where all the needed scientific specialities will meet.

EPNOE and ACS are expecting EPNOE 2013 conference to be the forum for all academic/research/industrial scientists and students dealing with polysaccharides and polysaccharide-derived products. Biologists, chemists, physicists, food specialists, technologists, environmentalists,… will meet and gain knowledge from other sides of polysaccharide science.

25–28 February 2016 Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference

Cancun, Mexico

The replacement of fossil fuels by a clean and renewable energy source is one of the most urgent and challenging issues our society is facing today, which is why intense research is devoted to this topic recently. Nature has been using sunlight as the primary energy input to oxidize water and generate carbohydrates (a solar fuel) for over a billion years. Inspired, but not constrained, by nature, artificial systems can be designed to capture light and oxidize water and reduce protons or other organic compounds to generate useful chemical fuels. Significant progress has been made recently in artificial photosynthesis based on molecular chemistry and material science.  However, developments in these two areas have occurred more independently than what is perhaps desired. In the present meeting, we will bring together researchers in these two scientific communities to explore possible synergistic effects of “fusion” between molecular and materials systems.

16 June 2016 Chemical Biology in Drug Discovery

Boston, USA

Chemical biology and proteomic strategies have rapidly emerged as cost effective yet powerful preclinical approaches for the discovery and identification of novel drugs and targets. Advances in the development and combination of novel chemical tools, bioorthogonal techniques, disease-relevant phenotypic systems, chemoinformatics, and chemical proteomics now provide robust and high-throughput workflows for interrogating drug-target-phenotype relationships. These efforts are poised to significantly enrich preclinical discovery programs and are illuminating a new paradigm for the development of novel drugs modulating novel targets.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Chemical Biology in Drug Discovery will once again gather an interdisciplinary collection of leaders to discuss these emerging tools and strategies to de-risk novel discovery initiatives.
