International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes (MMC-X)
took place 18-23 May 2003 in a boat that departed from Moscow
and travelled along the Volga River. It was held under the
auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences; The Ministry
of Industry, Science, and Technologies of the Russian Federation;
and the Russian Foundation for Basic Research. It was organized
by the Moscow State University's Department of Chemistry.
first International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes
(MMC) was organized in 1985 in Beijing. The MMC symposia have
been held every two years in locations all over the world
(Italy, Germany, China, Netherlands, Japan, USA). The main
goal of the meetings is to bring together scientists and technologists
(polymer chemists, coordination chemists, biochemists, catalytic
chemists, and others) to intensify the dialogue among young
scientists, academia, and industry; to encourage newcomers
to the field; and to motivate future research.
hundred twenty participants from 15 countries listened to
6 plenary, 18 invited, and 18 oral lectures. During the symposium
64 posters were also presented.
scientific program of the 10th symposium was centered around
a number of fundamental and applied topics such as fundamental
aspects (synthesis, structure, properties), electron and photonic
transfer, catalysis and separation processes, supramolecules,
dendrimers, molecular recognition, metal ion conductive polymers,
and environmental application of MMC. Plenary and invited
lecturers covered each topic of the symposium, providing an
excellent foundation for discussions and providing ideas for
further developments in the field.
from plenary and invited lectures will be published in Macromolecular
Symposia. The 11th International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal
Complexes will be held in 2005 in Pisa, Italy
