Brussels, 02 Jun 2003
The annual forum of molecular catalysis will take place on June, in Heidelberg, Germany.
Leading researchers in the field of molecular catalysis will present their work during a series of plenary sessions and lectures. Topics will focus on the following:
-discovering and understanding new transition metal-catalysed reactions;
-catalysis and polymerisation with nanoscale multiphase systems;
-privileged ligands, reactions and substrates in asymmetric catalysis;
-olefin polymerisations catalysed by late transition metal complexes: mechanistic and synthetic aspects.
The forum will also highlight the important role of the Rhine-Neckar region in promoting scientific research in this field and attracting young scientists from all over the world to the region: The BASF Catalysis Award of 10,000 euro will presented to most outstanding work by a young researcher at the forum.
