New Aspects of Heterocycles
|Event Date/Time: Oct 09, 2013 / 10:30 am - (GMT)||End Date/Time: Oct 09, 2013 / 5:00 pm - (GMT)|
The vast majority of pharmaceuticals, new materials and other effect chemicals are heterocyclic - heterocycles are essential to life, our well-being and the economy. In recent years, a range of new approaches and methods have rejuvenated the field of heterocyclic chemistry: this meeting brings together leading practitioners of these new approaches in an exciting selection of cutting-edge research that will change your perception of this long-established field.
This meeting is targeted at industrial chemists working in medicinal chemistry, agrochemicals, materials chemistry and other users of heterocyclic molecules, especially those involved in the identification of new small molecules for applications. It should also attract people from academic heterocyclic synthesis groups.
