Heterocyclic and Synthesis Group


The Heterocyclic and Synthesis Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.

Aim

To promote heterocyclic chemistry of all types through the organisation of scientific meetings.

Heterocyclic chemistry is interpreted in its broadest sense and we are the Interest Group closest to mainstream synthetic organic chemistry.

The following themes have been prevalent in recent years:

  • Synthesis and reactivity of heterocycles including mechanistic studies 
  • Practical applications of heterocyclic compounds 
  • Total synthesis 
  • Heterocyclic intermediates and reagents

We are proud of our strong links with industry which is reflected in the number of group members who work in the chemical industry. The excellent support we receive from industry in both sponsorship and speakers enables us to run high quality meetings.

Community

We also have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests. 

Get Involved

We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
