The EuChemS Inorganic Chemistry Conference is a biannual event showcasing the latest work by the very best inorganic chemists. After previous meetings successfully held in Manchester (2011), Jerusalem (2013), Wroclaw (2015) and Copenhagen (2017) the 5th EuChemS Inorganic Chemistry Conference (EICC-5) was held in Moscow between 24 – 28th June.
Developments, achievements and prospects in all fields of inorganic chemistry were presented in plenary lectures by distinguished scientists, keynote presentations, oral communications and posters in various sections. Guided by the traditions of previous EICCs, the conference’s main purpose was to promote the development of the new generation of inorganic chemists, enabling them to establish new contacts with colleagues from different countries and chemistry fields through the presentation of their work, and through the many networking opportunities the conference provided.
Dalton Transactions Editorial Board Member Marinella Mazzanti was a Plenary Speaker and New Journal of Chemistry’s Editor-in-Chief Mir Wais Hosseini and Associate Editor Yannick Guari were Keynote Speakers.
