RSC Desktop Seminar Series

Royal Society of Chemistry is organising a series of Desktop Seminars with premier research institutes in India including Indian Institute Technology (IITs) and Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs). Each seminar will feature a journal published by the RSC and discuss research targeted on subject areas related to it.

RSC - IISER Desktop Seminar with OBC

The fifth event in the RSC Desktop Seminar Series is jointly organised by Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry (OBC) and IISER Mohali. This virtual event will have scientific talks by renowned researchers including OBC board members talking about their exciting science at sessions focused on Organic Synthesis, Organic Catalysis and Chemical Biology. The seminar will bring together scientists in a stimulating and friendly environment that will facilitate sharing of knowledge and foster collaborations in times of limited travel. You will also have the opportunity to speak to the team behind the journal and learn more about the RSC products.
