The Gordon Research Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions (GRC – EDAI) has persisted for 50 years as the leading forum enabling dissemination of premiere research related to both experimental and theoretical studies of electron and energy transfer processes. Over the past several decades, the GRC - EDAI has maintained focus on understanding the fundamental process of molecular electron and energy transfer, defining and investigating parameters including the role of distance, medium, reaction driving force, spin, and molecular connectivity while bearing witness to some of the most significant advances in the field. This landmark conference will feature a number of fundamental EDAI topics in addition to emerging areas along with their applications in notable technologies; these topics include bio-inspired approaches, photoredox catalysis, photonic materials, catalysis for fuels, triplet fusion, singlet fission, and coherence phenomena. World leaders in all of these disciplines will be featured as speakers and discussion leaders, making the conference an excellent forum for scientists from different backgrounds to meet and initiate new directions; for scientists from different countries to make contacts; and for young scientists to network and establish personal contacts with other members of this community. This GRC – EDAI will feature a highly interactive atmosphere in concert with engaging poster sessions; two posters will be selected for oral presentations.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2019. Please check back for updates.
