We are looking forward to our Faraday Discussions meeting on Mechanistic processes in organometallic chemistry in York, UK from 2–4 September 2019.
We’ll be discussing current understanding of unusual element-element bond formation and activation, physical methods & computational approaches for mechanistic understanding, plus mechanistic insight into organic and industrial transformations.
The oral abstract deadline is approaching! Submit your abstract by 17 October for the opportunity to discuss your work with an excellent line-up of speakers including Odile Eisenstein, Thomas Braun, Jeremy Harvey, Aiwen Lei, Guy Lloyd-Jones, Jennifer Love and more.
To get you in the mood, we encourage you to read some of the excellent related reviews and original research recently published in a range of Royal Society of Chemistry journals. Several are free to access – enjoy!
