SCS Spring Meeting 2022

The SCS Spring Meeting is a one-day symposium and provides a high quality program with national and international speakers of a certain topic. The topic of the 2022 edition is 'Biosupramolecular Chemistry'.

Start Date 22.04.2022 - 09:00
Event End 22.04.2022 - 17:30
Location Université de Genève
Department of Chemistry, Auditoire A300, Quai Ernest-Ansermet 30

Non-covalent interactions are increasingly embraced as a central design principle in research areas beyond host-guest chemistry, the cradles of supramolecular chemistry.  The biosupramolecular theme of this spring meeting tributes the roots of supramolecular chemistry and covers the growing reaches of molecular recognition principles from organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry toward chemical biology, systems catalysis, and the materials sciences. The unifying aim being to go from structure to function in dynamic systems that are programmed by reversible interactions and inspired by nature.
