170301 ISMEC2017

Initiated in 1974, ISMEC has become years after years a well-established series of international conferences focusing on the study and applications of metal complexes in the fields of analytical, biomedical, environmental, supramolecular, inorganic, physical, and industrial chemistry.

Hosted in 2017 for the first time in France, the 44th edition of ISMEC aims at providing an outstanding forum for sharing new ideas and discussing the most recent advances on the thermodynamics and kinetics of coordination processes. By gathering researchers from both academia and industry, ISMEC 2017 seeks to foster new collaborations among researchers from diverse backgrounds with complementary skills and goals.

Dates: June 11-15, 2017
Lieu: University of Burgundy, DIJON-France

Contact : Dr. Michel Meyer, Conference Chair of ISMEC 2017,


  • Speciation, solution equilibria and kinetics in relation to coordination chemistry
  • Supramolecular chemistry
  • Analytical methods and sensors based on metal complexes
  • Industrial processes (e.g. hydrometallurgy, ion-exchange, catalysis…)
