The International Conference on Organic Synthesis (ICOS),
a biennial event, initiated in 1976 by IUPAC as a platform for the exhibition of new and upcoming topics in the field of organic chemistry, brings together a plethora of new ideas and more importantly catenates new scientific minds. Research in organic chemistry includes mainly the frontiers of total synthesis, designing of new methodologies, flow chemistry, C-H activation, synthetic biology, pharmaceutical and industrial chemistry. It is a global event where scientists from all over the world participate and the conference is extending its domain with every edition.
ICOS makes its mark in India after a long span of 22 years, since the 10th edition held at Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, way back in 1994. The upcoming 21st edition promises to be an intriguing affair for the scientific brains, with a series of exciting lectures in the commercial capital of India, Mumbai. We do hope that the 6 day event resonates with scientific prosperity and all guests and dignitaries have a wonderful time in the “Lancashire of India”.
