Photocatalysis in organic synthesis

Plats: AstraZeneca R&D Mölndal
Datum: 6 nov > 6. nov 2017

The symposium aims to illustrate the research front in photocatalysis, with a focus on method development in synthetic organic chemistry. This area of ​​research is new and exciting, and has had a huge impact in recent years. Worldwide, over 150 research groups work with photocatalysis, and since the end of 2016, three well-known journals have dedicated special editions to photocatalysis.
Despite this, there are few groups in Scandinavia that currently use the technology.

Our hope is that the symposium will both inspire and educate, and create conditions for international research cooperation and exchange of experiences. Five world-leading researchers have been invited as lecturers and their lectures will reflect the entire field of research in synthetic photocatalysis. By introducing photocatalysis to the strong organic chemistry research available in Scandinavia, we hope that photocatalysis will find new branches with new and exciting chemistry as a result.

The venue is on AstraZeneca’s research facility in Mölndal, providing a unique opportunity for academic and industrial researchers to meet. We want to highlight that this exciting area of ​​research has never before been the focus of a meeting in Sweden.
