Challenges in Organic Chemistry: ISACS14

7 - 10 August 2014, Shanghai, China

Following the success of ISACS 1 in San Francisco (2010) and  ISACS 7 in Edinburgh (2012), ISACS 14 Challenges in Organic Chemistry will bring together world leading experts in the field of organic chemistry and synthesis.

The conference will take place at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry,  China and the Scientific Committee warmly invites you to take part in ISACS 14 and looks forward to welcoming you to Shanghai.


The conference will provide an outstanding programme, complimented by extensive poster sessions forming a key part of the symposia. There will be questions after each talk and delegates will be exposed to new areas of research which will encourage the cross fertilization of ideas.
