The symposium titled ‘Giving Wings to Homogenous Catalysts’ occurs this Friday (February 3rd) to celebrate Prof. Piet van Leeuwen’s birthday. As well as a birthday dinner the day also sees a range of key speakers in the field of catalysis with a total of 9 lectures, covering all topics in homogeneous catalysis. Catalysis Science & Technology is proud to be a sponsor of the event and more details of the day can be found on the symposium website. A full list of the speakers and lectures can be found here and a few are listed below

Prof. Paul C. J. Kamer (University of St. Andrews, UK)
“Adventures with Phosphorus Donor Ligands and Bite
Angles in Homogeneous Catalysis”

Prof. Jairton Dupont (Institute of Chemistry UFRGS, Brazil)
“Catalysis by Ionic Liquid Soluble Metal Nanoparticles”
