Problem Solving in Design Synthesis and Process

Problem Solving in Design Synthesis and Process is a one-day symposium and networking event aimed at fostering collaboration between leading academic researchers and industrialists in the fields of synthesis, molecular design and chemical process.

The day comprises a series of lectures and poster presentations focussed upon using molecular-level mechanistic analysis to resolve practical issues and to drive forwards understanding, with time set-aside in the programme for participants to make contacts and discuss areas of mutual interest.

Who Should Attend

The meeting will be of interest to those actively working in chemical process, molecular design and synthetic methodology, as well as those with broader interests in Physical Organic Chemistry. The organisers are particularly keen to offer a forum for participants from industry and academia to make new contacts, hence would strongly encourage attendance from those seeking collaborations.
