Frontiers of Organometallic Chemistry (FOC-2012)

September 21st-22nd 2012, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Last month ‘Frontiers of Organometallic Chemistry’ was held in Saint Petersburg and saw researchers from around the world come together to talk about the latest developments in organometallic chemistry. Nobel laureate Professor Ei-ichi Negishi opened the conference with his talk ‘ZACA Reaction (Zr-Catalyzed Asymmetric Carboalumination of Alkenes) as an Emerging Tool for Asymmetric Synthesis of Feebly Chiral Compounds of High (>99%) Enantiomeric Purity’. The symposium continued with top quality talks by researchers from around the world, more details of the conference speakers can be found here.
