1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions

ICNI 2019, 1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions


Have you read our cross-journal web collection celebrating the 1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions yet? With articles from CrystEngComm, Dalton Transactions, New Journal of Chemistry,  RSC Advances, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, Chemical Science, ChemComm and more, this collection is not one to miss!


Noncovalent interactions (hydrogen, aerogen, halogen, chalcogen, pnictogen, tetrel and icosagen bonds, as well as cation-π, anion-π, lone pair-π, π-π stacking, agostic, pseudo-agostic, anagostic, dispersion-driven, lipophilic, etc.) concern weak forces of attraction formed between different molecules (intermolecular) or fragments of the same molecule (intramolecular). While these weak interactions were firstly taken into consideration by van der Waals in 1873, the understanding of their crucial role in synthesis, catalysis, crystal engineering, pharmaceutical design, molecular biology, molecular recognition, materials, etc. has been increasingly explored in the last few decades.

Thus, it is timely to establish a general/regular series of International Conferences on Noncovalent Interactions (ICNI), the first of which is to be held on 2-6 September 2019 in Lisbon. The conference aims to bring together scientists from around the world working on this field in order to exchange ideas, discuss recent advances and future directions/plans.

Guest-Edited by Kamran T Mahmudov and Armando J L Pombeiro, this collection brings together previous papers as well as new articles celebrating noncovalent interactions. Remember to check back regularly to see our latest articles up to and after the conference takes place!
