SCS Syngenta Symposium 2019

190921 SyngentaSymposium2019«Welcome to the One Electron World»
October 17, 2019, Syngenta Research Center Stein (AG)

The focus of this one day symposium will be on cutting-edge research in single electron chemistry, from photoredox to electrochemistry and radical reactions and beyond for their role in life science.
The highlight of the day will be three plenary lectures with Prof. Samir Zard, Prof. Robert Knowles and Prof. Dereck Pratt as well as six invited lectures.
A poster session will round out the program over lunch time.

Attendance is free but will be limited to approx. 150 participants. Register here.
