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.

24th IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry (ICPOC 24)

  • This event has passed.

The 24th IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry (ICPOC 24), to be held in Faro, Portugal, from 1 to 6 July 2018.
Since their start, in 1972, ICPOC conferences have been the leading international gatherings on Physical Organic Chemistry. Traditionally, Physical Organic Chemistry relates molecular structure to chemical behaviour, 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.

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.
