The 21st IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry (ICPOC21) will be held 9–13 September 2012 in Durham, a small city in north-east England whose castle and cathedral are designated World Heritage sites. The conference will consist of plenary, keynote, and contributed lectures, as well as poster sessions. Further information (including registration, location, travel, and how to apply for student bursaries) may be found on the conference website or by contacting RSC Events <[email protected]>.
The ICPOC meetings bring together a broad range of scientists from across the whole community who share a quantitative perspective on chemistry. Although traditionally considered as the study of mechanism, reactivity, structure, and equilibrium in organic systems, especially leading to the quantitative, molecular level understanding of their properties, physical organic chemistry now encompasses a wider range of contexts than ever before. This meeting will be structured around three themes, each covering several key topics:
- Physical underpinnings: dynamics in solution, scope and limitations of transition state theory, advances in reaction monitoring, new approaches to aromaticity.
- Mechanism and Catalysis: homogeneous—including organo- and organometallic; heterogeneous—including nanoparticles, mechanistic enzymology.
- Supramolecular and Systems Chemistry: non-covalent interactions, molecular self-assembly, gel-forming materials.
The Scientific Committee welcomes abstracts for contributed oral presentations and poster presentations. The deadline for oral presentations is 23 March 2012.
