Challenges in Organic Materials and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISACS6), 2-5 September 2011, Beijing, China

A new generation of conferences

Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry is the third and final event in the International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) series for 2011. 

Building on the success of the inaugural 2010 meetings held in San Francisco, Budapest and Hong Kong, the conference will bring together exceptional researchers - all leading names in the field - for an outstanding plenary programme, complemented by contributed talks and extensive poster sessions. 

The conference will review current research developments in organic materials & supramolecular chemistry and highlight future challenges, covering:

  • Supramolecular chemistry 
  • Molecular recognition
  • Organic materials
  • Supramolecular polymers
  • Polymer chemistry
  • Anion binding
  • Self assembly 

New for 2011

We are delighted to have a limited number of oral presentation slots available for ISACS6. If you would like the opportunity to give an oral presentation, click on the 'Call for abstracts' link and follow the submission instructions.
