Chemical Science symposium 2022: Sustainable synthesis and catalysis

10 - 11 November 2022, London, United Kingdom

Introduction
Registration is now closed.

Welcome

Under the banner of our flagship diamond open access journal, Chemical Science, we’ll be shining a spotlight on cutting-edge chemistry research and giving it the sort of attention that drives scientific progress and makes a difference.

This hybrid meeting is the next iteration in the Chemical Science symposia series hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry.  We’re excited to welcome delegates back face to face at the home of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and look forward to a conversation enriched by the online participation of our international community.

We warmly invite you to join us in London, or online, in November 2022, for the fourth Chemical Science symposium, and look forward to welcoming you to the discussion.

About the symposium

Leading researchers and emerging investigators from a broad range of backgrounds will come together to explore and celebrate the theme of the 2022 symposium: Sustainable synthesis and catalysis.

We are delighted to announce our keynote speaker will be Professor David Macmillan, founding Editor-in-chief of Chemical Science and joint recipient of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The scientific programme of invited talks will be added shortly. The invited speakers will also be complemented by flash talks and digital poster sessions to provide further networking opportunities and discussion for all attendees.

The invited speakers for this symposium will discuss research over a range of topics, including:
  • Asymmetric organocatalysis
  • Photocatalysis
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Alternative feedstocks
  • Biocatalysis

Abstract Submission

Poster abstracts

Submit your poster abstract by 14 September 2022. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting, both in-person and virtually. As this symposium is being planned as a hybrid event we will be using a dedicated online poster platform to show all posters.

Poster presenters who are attending the symposium in-person will also need to print and display their poster physically. If your poster is accepted for this event, you will receive an email from us with further information for those attending in-person and inviting you log on to the poster platform where you will be able to upload a PDF of your poster.

 Additional information

All poster abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 4 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author.

Terms and Conditions for Events run by the Royal Society of Chemistry

Bursaries

Researcher development grant

If you are an RSC member and a PhD student or postdoctoral researcher based at a higher education or research institution you are eligible to apply for a Researcher development grant.

This grant can provide up to £500 towards activities that will develop your skills and experience as a researcher, which includes participation at conferences, either in-person or virtual.

Applications are processed monthly, with the deadline for each round being the last day of the month, and decisions being sent out by the 21st of the following month. Researcher development grants can be applied for in addition to Grants for carers and Assistance grants.

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.

You can apply for up to a maximum of £1000/year to assist with additional financial costs that you incur for care usually provided by you whilst you attend a chemistry related meeting, conference or workshop or a professional development event.

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).
