11th international Congress on Catalysis and Fine Chemicals (CAFC-11)

11th international Congress on Catalysis and Fine Chemicals (CAFC-11)

5th – 8th September 2016

Lyon, France


The congress is devoted to the application of any type of catalysts -homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic; whatever are involved metals, organometallic complexes, organic species, or even acids and bases, to the synthesis of fine chemicals, with special emphasis on selectivity issues.

The aim is to bring together researchers from both academia and industry working in this area to share their expertise as a way to open new collaborations helping to solve forthcoming problems in the chemical industry. Today’s research in the field of Applied Catalysis must also involve eco-efficient methodologies that could be addressed by chemical engineering (multicomponent reactions, multiphase or flow reactors, multifunctional reactors…) as well as implementing more sustainable synthetic methods for fine chemistry based on catalytic transformation of bio-based substances.

Confirmed plenary Lecturers

Andras Horvath. Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, Belgium
Simeprevir (TMC435): development of a large scale ring closing metathesis (RCM) process

Xile Hu. Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering, Switzerland
