The RSC Applied Catalysis Group and the SCI Fine Chemicals Group were pleased to announce ‘Challenges in Catalysis V’, returning by popular demand, following highly successful meetings in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2014. Once again, an exciting programme was assembled to highlight the current challenges and practices of catalysis science in the Pharmaceutical and Fine Chemicals industries.
Topics covered this time were catalysis in cross-coupling reactions, novel catalytic methods and mechanism, catalysis in flow, novel reactor systems, and automation in catalyst discovery.
About the ACG
The Applied Catalysis Group aims to promote both hetero- and homogeneous catalysis through a range of activities including seminars, conferences and other professional activities related to chemical catalysis.
Call for Posters
The deadline for poster submissions was 9th September 2016.
There was a small exhibition of relevant trade stands. The exhibition stands cost £500, and this included one trade stand staff (no access to the symposium). The exhibition is now fully booked.
The exhibition package included:
• Stand area with space for roller panel or poster board to display products and services
• One table measuring 0.8 m deep x 1.6 m wide x 0.725 m high (optional)
• Inclusion of a single flyer in the delegate packs (to comprise no more than two pages of A4 fixed together)
• Inclusion of an advert slide to be played on rotation on the main screen during breaks
• Sponsor logo acknowledgement in the delegate handbook
• Attendance by one representative, including food and drinks mixer event (excludes access to technical programme).
Delegate pack inserts were offered at £200 - sponsor to provide pack inserts.
