International Symposium on Synthesis and Catalysis

2 - 4 September 2015, Evora, Portugal

The International Symposium on Synthesis and Catalysis 2015 (ISySyCat2015) will take place at the University of Evora in the historically recognized mediaeval city of Evora ( from September 2-4 2015. The city of Evora besides its striking beauty, uniqueness and hospitality is steeped in history having being the home to the Romans, the Moors, Visigoth's and others, including various Portuguese kings.

The conference will take place in the old part of the University known as Colégio Espirito Santo which dates back to the 16th Century.

The conference will focus on the following key areas:
• Total synthesis of natural products.
• Synthesis in Medicinal chemistry and chemical biology.
• New reagents, catalysts, strategies and concepts for organic synthesis.
• Biocatalysis in synthesis.
• Organocatalysis.
• Flow-chemistry approaches to the synthesis of key targets.
• Applications of organometallic compounds in synthesis and catalysis.
• Stereoselective synthesis.
• Synthesis and property of functional molecules and organic materials.
• Sustainable and Green synthetic and catalytic methods.
• Process development of key pharmaceutical targets.
• Computational tools for synthesis and catalysis.
