16th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium

 Brussels, Belgium    July 8-13, 2018

The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis.

The BOSS will cover a broad range of timely topics of modern organic synthesis, including asymmetric synthesis, chemical biology, electrosynthesis, medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, photocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, supramolecular chemistry, sustainable chemistry, total synthesis… and many more!

The BOSS XVI Symposium Programme will include:

  • a one-day course by the recipient of the 2018 Tetrahedron Chair, Prof. Phil Baran (Scripps Research Institute, USA)
  • a lecture delivered by Prof. Dean Toste (University of California, USA),the recipient of the 2018 Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
  • a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
  • poster sessions
  • an exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
  • social activities

The official symposium language is English.
