The 28th International Symposium on the Organic Chemistry of Sulfur (ISOCS 28) was held in Tokyo, Japan, from 26th – 31st August.
Over 220 delegates attended the symposium which was chaired by Professor Kei Goto (Tokyo Institute of Technology). ISOCS symposia are prestigious international scientific events with a tradition of over 50 years that cover the whole fascinating range of sulfur chemistry from theory to practical applications. ISOCS-28 has offered a scientific program dealing with the latest developments in sulfur chemistry presented by leading international experts including six Plenary Lecturers and twenty Invited Lecturers. The next symposium, ISOCS-29, will be held in 2020 in Ontario, Canada, under the chairmanship of Professor Adrian L. Schwan (University of Guelph).
Mr Ryosuke Masuda from Tokyo Institute of Technology was awarded the ChemComm Poster Prize for his piece titled ‘Model Study of a GPx-derived Selenenic Acid with Thiols by Utilizing a Cradled Selenocysteine’.
Mr Tomohiro Sugahara from Kyoto University was award the Chemical Science Poster Prize for his piece titled ‘Chalcogenation Reactions of 1,2-Digermacyclobutadiene’.
Congratulations to both!
