Organic Chemistry Symposia finish in Kyoto

It’s the final day of our symposium series and it’s been another great one, in the historic city of Kyoto. Many thanks to our host Professor Keiji Maruoka.

The speakers again presented some really exciting and innovative research. Alongside the international speakers Professor Naoto Chatani from Osaka University presented his work on Ni-catalysed functionalization of C-H bonds; OBC Editorial Board member Professor Kenichiro Itami (Nagoya University) talked about how C-H functionalization can be applied to biological and materials problems; and Professor Michinori Suginome presented on chirality-switchable helical macromolecules.

Once again we saw some great work from some early career researchers: Professors Norie Momiyama (Institute of Molecular Research), Takuya Hashimoto (Kyoto University), Yusuke Kita and Koji Hirano (both from Osaka University).

It’s been a fantastic week of organic chemistry. Many thanks to all the hosts and speakers for making it a great set of symposia!
