The conference is organized by V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University and L.M. Litvinenko Institute of Physico-Organic Chemistry and Coal Chemistry in cooperation with the Physical Chemistry Department of the Ukrainian Chemical Society. The conference is sponsored by IU P AC and European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences.

Nikolai IZMAILOV (1907 – 1961), outstanding Soviet chemist, head of the Physical Chemistry Department at Kharkiv University. In 1938 he invented the thin layer chromatography. Izmailov contributed a lot to chemical thermodynamics and theory of equilibria in electrolyte solutions; developed significantly the theory of glass electrode; forwarded greatly the physical-chemical analysis; formulated the basic principles of sorption from solutions; was one of the pioneers in application of radioactive indicators.

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:
physical chemistry of true and organized solutions (thermodynamics; physico-organic chemistry; electrochemistry; spectroscopic methods);
supramolecular chemistry, nanochemistry, microreactors, macromolecules, sensors;
physical chemistry of interfaces; chromatography; catalysis; hybrid materials;
theoretical methods in modeling molecules and molecular assemblies; computer synthesis; design of materials.

Official Language: English

One-page abstracts will be published in the Proceedings that will be available to participants on arrival. The participants will have a possibility to submit their contributions presented at the conference to scientific journals. For the present the list of journals includes Journal of Molecular Liquids, Kharkiv University Bulletin (Chemical Series), Functional Materials and FARMAKOM. It is expected to be enlarged. The papers will be reviewed according to the routine procedure.

Located in the eastern part of Ukraine, Kharkiv has quite a lot to offer to visitors, and the weather at the end of June is usually favourable for sightseeng. It is the second city of Ukraine after Kiev with the population of about 1.5 million.

Convenient and good-quality accommodation is available in hotels near the University. For young participants some rooms in the students hostel will be provided.

Kharkiv has direct air and train connection with a number of foreign countries. Also, there is regular train and bus connection with the main Ukrainian international airport Borispol.

At the moment, no visa is required for citizens of the USA, Schengen and NIS countries.

Now there are more than 40 higher schools and 30 research institutions in Kharkiv. But V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, without reserve, occupies a peculiar place among them. With its 200-years history, it is the oldest University in Ukraine with deep traditions and dynamic present. Chemistry has been teaching in the University from the very first day of its existence, and it was within its walls that the very first course of lectures on physical chemistry was introduced by Professor N.N. Beketov as early as in 1865.
