FROST2 is organized in association with the American Chemical Society Hungarian Chapter (ACS HC). The course targets innovative areas of organic chemistry which have great future potential. This year, the theme of the course will be,
"Progress in Flow Chemistry".

Topics will include

* High yielding and selective reactions in flow
* Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic synthesis
* Rapid scale-up and reaction optimization
* "Flash" chemistry as an alternative to microwave assisted synthesis
* Case studies

International Advisory Board

* Dr. Ferenc Darvas (UMIT, Hall am Innsbruck, Austria and ThalesNano Inc., Hungary)
* Dr. Marko D. Mihovilovic (Vienna University of Technology, Austria)
* Dr. Tibor Soós (Chemical Research Institute, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary)
