27th International symposium: Synthesis in organic chemistry

19 - 22 July 2021, Oxford, United Kingdom


Covid-19
We understand that there is continuing uncertainty regarding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our scheduled events. We are keeping our programme under review and as appropriate we will actively explore alternatives, such as transitioning to a virtual conference, if required. We fully understand that it is difficult for delegates to make travel and conference plans at this time, however we encourage delegates to continue to submit their abstracts and to register in confidence that the conference will go ahead, and we are happy to refund registration fees at a later date if the conference plans change. We will contact all registered delegates as soon as possible with any changes to planned events, and the latest information on the conference schedule, registration details and any programme changes will be announced on these web pages. If you have any questions please contact us. We remain grateful for your support.
Introduction
The Synthesis in Organic Chemistry conference is a flagship event for the international organic chemistry community.

The first meeting of this internationally renowned symposium was held in Oxford in 1969, and since then the meetings have alternated on a biennial basis between Oxford and Cambridge.

The Synthesis in Organic Chemistry conference will cover all aspects of contemporary organic synthesis and provide a forum for the ever more exciting methodologies and strategies that continue to emerge. The conference will be of interest to all early-career and established scientists, post-graduate students and industrial researchers working in this field.

Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the 2021 conference will host some of the leading organic researchers from around the world. It promises to be a great forum to network and build strong collaborations within the community and related disciplines.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford in July 2021

Jonathan Burton, Tim Donohoe and Véronique Gouverneur

Attendance

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you would like to discuss accessibility, or have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, please contact us to discuss your requirements so that we can enable your attendance.

Grants for Carers

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities. These grants have been supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemists’ Community Fund.

Caring responsibilities are wide and varied, and so each application will be individually assessed, examples of applications that we will consider include:
  • paying for extra home help or nursing care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • travel expenses for a relative to travel with you to care for dependents whilst you attend a meeting or event
  • paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you will arrive home later than normal.
You are eligible to apply if:
  • you are a chemist
  • you will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
  • you will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you usually provide 
  • you are based in the UK or Ireland or if not, you will normally have held three years RSC membership (past or current).

Travel Grants

In light of COVID-19, we are not currently accepting applications to our Travel Grant for PhD Students and Early Career Scientists. We will update our Travel Grants website with more information as it becomes available.
