The 10th Congress on Catalysis Applied to Fine Chemicals

The 10th Congress on Catalysis Applied to Fine Chemicals will be held in Turku, Finland on June 16–19th. The congress is devoted to the application of any type of catalyst (homogeneous, heterogeneous, enzymatic) to the synthesis of fine chemicals, with special emphasis on the selectivity issues. The aim is to bring together researchers from both academia and industry, working in the synthesis of fine chemicals with various catalysts, to share their expertise in the field as a way to open new collaborations that help to solve the forthcoming problems in the chemical industry, and to implement more sustainable synthetic methods based on catalytic processes. Click here to register today!
