Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

25th IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry (ICPOC-25)

  • This event has passed.

Since the first meeting in 1972, the IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry (ICPOC) meetings have been the leading international gatherings on Physical Organic Chemistry.

Traditionally, Physical Organic Chemistry relates molecular structure to chemical behavior, by means of the study of structure, reactivity, mechanism and equilibrium in organic systems, aiming at the quantitative, molecular level understanding of their properties. Nowadays, Physical Organic Chemistry encompasses a much wider range of contexts, extending into materials science, biology and systems chemistry.

The ICPOC-25 will focus on discussing
(1) Organic Reactivity and Reactive Intermediates Chemistry,
(2) Theoretical and Computational Organic Chemistry,
(3) π-Conjugated Molecular and Materials Chemistry,
(4) Organic Photochemistry,
(5) Supramolecular Chemistry, and
(6) Organic Main Group Chemistry, and their related chemistry.

This comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach plays a pivotal role in the development of chemical sciences, expanding their boundaries, and reflects on the vibrant and enlightening scientific discussions usually held in ICPOC meetings.

ICPOC-25 will be held in Hiroshima, Japan, from 10 to 15 July 2022. Together with an outstanding scientific program, you will feel the colors, flavors, tastes, history and traditions of Hiroshima area. I strongly encourage young chemists to come to Hiroshima and enjoy the ICPOC meeting.
