SCS Spring Meeting 2024 «Frontiers in Homogenous Catalysis»

The SCS Spring Meeting is a one-day symposium and provides a high-quality program with national and international speakers on a certain topic. The topic of the 2024 symposium was «Frontiers in Homogeneous Catalysis». Homogeneous catalysis is a cornerstone of modern chemistry, enabling the creation of complex molecules with remarkable control and efficiency.
It serves as the silent driving force behind numerous industrial processes and is essential for today’s production of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals that shape our modern world. This meeting aimed to spotlight novel developments in the realm of homogeneous catalysis by convening leading experts from this field. They presented their findings on a wide spectrum of subjects, encompassing late-stage functionalization, photocatalysis, and catalytically active oscillators.
