UK Catalysis Conference (UKCC) 2018

Catalysis Science & Technology is pleased to support the fourth UK Catalysis Conference (UKCC) taking place between 3-5 January 2018 at Holywell Park, Loughborough. The journal will be awarding poster prizes for the winning abstract submissions.

The scientific program for the event will be focused around:

  • Organo/Biocatalysis
  • RSC Surface Reactivity & Catalysis Group/Applied Catalysis Group
  • IChemE Catalysis Specialist Interest Group
  • RSC Dalton Division

The meeting will provide an opportunity for catalytic scientists and engineers from across the UK’s academic and industrial communities to interact and network over the whole spectrum of Catalysis ranging from Organocatalysis, Biocatalysis, Homogenous catalysis and Heterogeneous catalysis. Plenary speakers for the 2018 edition are:

Prof. Adrian Mulholland
Bristol University, UK
Prof. Louise Olsson
Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
Prof. Karen Wilson
Aston University, UK
Dr Moniek Tromp
University of Amsterdam,

4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries

The 4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries (CatBior 2017) will take place between 11-15 December 2017 at Université Lyon 2 in Lyon, France.

The fourth edition of CatBior will address the main issues in the dynamic field of catalysis for biorefineries, in fundamental and applied catalysis researches for biomass transformation. Special emphasis will be placed on the utilization of lignocellulosic or algal biomass and non-edible vegetable oils, which do not compete with food. It will be focused on the use of sustainable catalytic methodologies, heterogeneous and homogeneous, including hybrid or dual catalysis.

The international committee features several Green Chemistry Advisory Board members, including: Fabrizio CavaniAvelino CormaJames DumesicRegina Palkovits and Keiichi Tomishige. Professor Cavani is also confirmed as a keynote speaker.

Catalysis Science & Technology will be awarding a £100 book voucher prize for the winning poster abstract.

The deadline for early registration is 15 September 2017.

Registration for the event closes 27 November 2017.
