Organometallic chemistry is at the interface of diverse areas of chemical research, from the development of anticancer drugs in pharmaceuticals to its use in the next generation of flat screen TVs. Conferences in this field bring together chemists specializing in wide-ranging subject matter, and the result is a gathering full of lively discussion and mutual learning.
Innovative research in organometallic chemistry is carried out at scores of academic and industrial institutions, and national laboratories, which results in many graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with interesting discoveries to share with the community. The Gordon Research Seminar’s focus on young scientists entering the field provides an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to present their research and learn from others in the field by discussing current developments in the area.
This seminar is designed to explore a broad range of topics and relevant trends in organometallic chemistry and will be closely linked with the Gordon Research Conference in Organometallic Chemistry. The 2008 seminar will feature two keynote speakers from academia and industry.
