The International Congress on Organic Chemistry consecrated to the famous Russian chemist Alexander Butlerov will be held in Kazan, Russia, on September 18-23, 2011 (the Butlerov’s Congress).
Alexander Butlerov is one of the founders of the modern theory of the chemical structure of organic compounds. In 1861 A. Butlerov delivered his ideas at the Congress of German Physicians and Naturalists in Speier (Germany). So, the Butlerov’s Congress is devoted to 150-th anniversary of that event.
Alexander Butlerov was one of the most gifted graduates of Kazan University founded in 1804. Historians call Kazan as “a cradle of Russian organic chemistry” because it was here many Russian organic chemistry research centers were started. Placed on the bank of the Volga River, Kazan is the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, sovereign part of the Russian Federation. Kazan is an important scientific and cultural center, having millennial history.
The Butlerov’s Congress is planned as world-wide forum for presentation of major advances of organic chemistry in all fields. We look forward to accepting about 500 scientists from all regions of the world, both young and experienced ones, and hope that many scholars of international repute will present their most recent major findings.
