ADHOC 2022

During this week (Sep 4-7) there will be the second main event of the year: #ADHOC2022 at the “La Mercè” Auditorium organised by Bioinspired, Supramolecular and Catalysis Chemistry group (QBIS-CAT) of the Institute of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis (IQCC) from University of Girona. The International Symposium on Activation of Dioxygen and Homogeneous Oxidation Catalysis (ADHOC 2022) is a triannual international conference that provides an ideal setting for interactions among academic and industrial researchers with expertise in the activation of molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, organic oxidation reactions, and homogenous oxidation catalysis, in general. Recent ADHOCs took place in Xi’an – China (2018), Madison – USA (2015), Jerusalem – Israel (2012), Venice – Italy (2008), Cologne – Germany (2005), Atlanta – USA (2002) and York – UK (1999).

ADHOC conferences have an outstanding reputation for excellence and highly engaged discussion, and they have become a focal point for scientists at the forefront of the development of new catalysts, new oxidants, new methods for catalytic oxidation, ranging from commodity chemicals to the stereoselective oxidation of pharmaceutical synthetic intermediates, new mechanistic insights into oxidative processes, and many other subjects related to oxidations. The meeting also aims at promoting new collaborations and it brings together young and senior scientists in a beautiful environment and in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

Plenary Lectures:
Lawrence Que Jr. (University of Minnesota, US), Franc Meyer (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany), Wonwoo Nam (Ewha Womans University, Korea), Jana Roithova
(Radboud University, The Netherlands), Shannon S. Stahl (University of Wisconsin-Madison, US).
