17th IUPAC International Symposium on Organometallic Chemistry Directed Towards Organic Synthesis (OMCOS17)

28 July – 1 August 2013
Fort Collins, United States

The OMCOS series of biennial symposia started in 1981. Its venue alternates between North America, Europe and East Asia. It is a single session type scientific conference that brings together industrial and academic chemists from around the world (often > 1000) to consider the most recent developments in new metal-mediated and -catalyzed reactions, mechanistic insights and new applications, novel preparations and uses for organometallic reagents, as well as ingenious and improved methods for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and materials using metals.

Catalytic processes involving organometallics are often unsurpassed in elegance and efficiency and they contribute decisively to the goal of economically and ecologically sound processes of production. The young, exciting, and powerful field of asymmetric catalysis receives particular attention in the OMCOS programs.
