9th Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry

OCF is very pleased to be sponsoring the “9th Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry (PSRC-9)” to be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California, USA. The Symposium will be held from the 16th to the 21st of June 2019.

Register early for reduced fee by 1st April 2019!

The symposium will cover all aspects of free radical chemistry and will bring together industrial and academic chemists from all over the world to report their latest discoveries in the fields of synthetic radical reactions, radical polymerizations, mechanistic insights into important radical reactions, new radical-based functional molecules and materials, as well as all aspects of radicals impacting in biology and medicine. The scientific program of PSRC-9 will include plenary lectures and invited lectures as well as poster sessions.

Find out more about this conference from the official website!
