Green Chemistry were pleased to sponsor a lecture given by Catalysis Science & Technology editorial board member Professor Christian Bruneau, CNRS, University of Rennes which took place at for the third edition of the International Symposium on C-H Activation (ISCHA), Montreal, Canada. His talk was entitled “Regioselective Functionalization of Saturated Cyclic Amines Involving sp3C–H Bond Activation and Hydrogen Transfers” and you can read the abstract here.
ISCHA3 consisted of 21 keynote lectures presented by scientists working at the forefront of C-H activation. Their perspectives encompassed the fields of synthetic organic, organometallic, materials science and bioorganic chemistry and created a uniquely diverse setting in which to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the C-H functionalization community.
To complement the program, the conference organizers planned 8 sessions of invited talks (45 min) as well as 4 sessions of short oral talks (20 min) selected out of the submitted abstracts from students, postdocs and faculty members. In combination with 2 poster sessions, these oral presentations created numerous opportunities to exchange ideas, and brainstorm about future directions.
