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.

28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry

  • This event has passed.

This event was first planned to take place 12-17 July 2020 and ultimately postponed because of the COVID19 situation worldwide 

The 28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry continues a long tradition of conferences where experts in photochemistry in a broad sense exchange the latest results, and where scientists and engineers who use light in their research or application can pick up new ideas and strengthen their knowledge of the specifics of the interaction of light and matter.

The scientific topics to be covered in the Symposium include areas of unparalleled impact in the world today. These include renewable energy sources, green chemistry, atmospheric photochemistry, single molecule microscopy and super resolution imaging. The latter are key for biosciences and trace analysis of proteins, nucleic acids, and small bioregulators. With more efficient light sources and means to collect solar energy, there is an on-going resurgence in the development of photochemical reactions using flow process, which are beginning to make an impact in an industrial context. This will be an excellent opportunity to engage scientists from pharmaceutical, materials, and other industries. The symposium will also cover advanced spectroscopic methods with increased time and space resolution and methods for analyzing complex samples.

Chair of Program Committee:
prof. dr. A.M. (Fred) Brouwer <[email protected]> van ‘t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences – University of Amsterdam – P.O. Box 94157 – 1090 GD Amsterdam – The Netherlands – tel: +31205255491- www.uva.nl/profile/a.m.brouwer

Post event: A collection of invited papers based on presentations at the 28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry (photoiupac 2022) is published in the August 2023 issue of PAC ; PAC keyword: PhotoIUPAC 2022
