The conference is organized by V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine), L. V. Pisarzhevsky Institute of Physical Chemistry (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) and L. M. Litvinenko Institute of Physico-Organic Chemistry and Coal Chemistry (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).

The V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, formerly Kharkov State University, has a long-standing tradition in physical chemistry dating back almost 150 years, in which the renowned Russian chemist, Nikolai Beketov (1827-1911), played a pioneering role. As early as 1860, he took the first initiative in a series of lectures entitled "Special Course of Organic Chemistry and Interrelation Between Physical and Chemical Phenomena". Within a few years a decisive milestone was reached when he founded the Physico-Chemical Division of the University in 1864 and delivered the first course of lectures on physical chemistry in 1865.

The main emphasis will be on the contribution of physical chemistry into the modern material science. Oral and poster presentations will be organized around the following main topics:

  • New materials
  • Organized solutions (supramolecular chemistry, nanochemistry, microreactors, macromolecules, sensors). Green chemistry
  • Electrochemistry and solution chemistry (thermodynamics; physico-organic chemistry; electrochemistry; spectroscopic methods)
  • Ecotoxycological aspects of nanotechnology
  • Theoretical chemistry

Official Language is English.
