Sixteen previous Florida Conferences held each March for the years 2000 through 2015 inclusive, brought together the academic and industrial communities with an abundance of heterocyclic and synthetic chemistry reflecting the current interest in the subject. The program holds particular interest for the industrial chemical community since pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and colorants usually contain at least one heterocyclic ring.
This, the 17th Florida Heterocyclic and Synthetic Conference (FloHet 2016), continues in the tradition of its highly successful predecessors. Registration will start on Sunday, February 28th with a Welcome Reception. On Monday the February, 29th through Wednesday the March, 2nd, the Conference will feature eleven plenary lectures given by academic and industrial experts from around the world together with invited lectures and a short course on catalysis and heterocyclic chemistry. A poster session combined with a buffet supper will be held on the evening of Monday, February 29th .
