This 3-day conference and exhibition has been designed to fill a gap in the conference field, providing a forum where industry and academia can meet to discuss new synthetic methodology and chiral chemistry, and how practical this methodology is from an industrial viewpoint.

Industry rarely devises new synthetic methods to perform each step in the synthetic route but relies on using and modifying methods which have been discovered within academia. It is therefore essential that the industrial chemist, whether in early research and discovery or process chemistry, is aware of the latest developments in synthetic organic chemistry, so that efficient and practical methods for synthesising new molecules are devised.

Emphasis will be on the state of the art and will provide directions for future work. Industrial chemical case studies where key reactions have been used, either in discovery or in development, will be provided.

The conference proceedings for the event will contain all the lecture presentations with key references to the current literature and will provide a valuable source of data for the future.

Top academic & industrial speakers will provide details of the latest developments in a wide range of topics, including:

• Asymmetric Hydrogenation and Epoxidation
• Challenges in Total Synthesis
• C-C and C-N Bond Forming Reactions
• Olefin Metathesis
• Synthesis of Carbocycles and Heterocycles
