2nd Symposium on Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, Southern Africa

  • This event has passed.

To present the forefront of organic and inorganic chemistry by invited international lectures and southern African emerging scientist in the area.

Invited scientists and representative of the IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division (Div. II) will learn how their field might have impact in southern Africa. Local scientist get a rare occasion to mix with internationally renowned scientist on their home turf. All can discuss how they can work better together, valuing and acknowledging each other’s contributions.

The intention is to showcase IUPAC activities and show how non-member states could profit from becoming members.

The conference will be held just after, and in the same location, as the Division II off-year meeting, making dual use of the division funds available to also promote IUPAC, and interact with chemists in Africa.

IUPAC will provide support for the travel and accommodation of five young scientists, one each from Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Lesotho, Malawi.
