Retrosynthesis and Heterocyclic Workshop

 

 

Days Hotel, Nottingham, UK
28 - 30 June 2011
Organised by SCI's Young Chemists' Panel of SCI's Fine Chemicals Group
 

Synopsis

This is the ninth meeting on retrosynthesis and heterocyclic chemistry organised by SCI's Young Chemists' Panel. The course will comprise a series of lectures and highly interactive small-group problem-solving sessions. Each tutorial group will be supported by a Young Chemists' Panel member. On the final day, there will be the opportunity to present results to the whole group as part of a team problemsolving event, where the skills learned in the first two days will be applied to the synthesis of real-life target molecules from the pharmaceuticals industry.

Who should attend?

The workshop will be of particular interest to recent graduates from the pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and fine-chemicals industries.
