Conference Description

The Gordon research Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry is widely considered to be one of the three top conferences in the field internationally. Held every two years since the mid-60’s, this conference represents the focal point for the latest developments in new mechanistic organic chemistry which underlies so much of our thinking in diverse areas such as materials, sensors, bio-organic chemistry, enzymology, catalysis, computational chemistry, gas-phase and solution chemistry, and synthetic methods.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Physical Organic Chemistry" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
