13–18 August 2006
Cape Town, South Africa
For the first time since the inception of the International Conference on Coordination Chemistry series of conferences in 1950, the 37th ICCC will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from 13–18 August 2006. It is hoped that this conference, to be held at the International Convention Centre in the heart of the city, will bring the single largest group of inorganic and coordination chemists in history to South Africa.
The South African economy is very dependent on the mining and refinement of its extensive mineral resources. South Africa is the world’s largest producer of platinum metals and a major supplier of gold and other important minerals. At the heart of the production of pure metals lies coordination chemistry. Therefore, the 37th ICCC in South Africa can help to stimulate the development of this science across the African continent.
Immediately after the 37th ICCC, an associated meeting, the 15th International Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis, will be held at Sun City in the North-Western Province, South Africa, from 20-25 August 2006.
The full scientific program will comprise a number of themes in modern coordination chemistry. A number of renowned coordination chemists have agreed to present plenary lectures: A P de Silva (Northern Ireland), Robert Grubbs (USA), Tobin Marks (USA), Helder Marques (South Africa), Kazuko Matsumoto (Japan), Peter Sadler (UK), and Omar Yaghi (USA).
