IISER-RSC Symposium on Functional Supramolecular Chemistry

6 March 2019 09:30-17:00, IISER Thiruvananthapuram, India

Introduction

School of Chemistry of Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram (IISER-TVM) is organizing an international conference on Supramolecular Chemistry with the partial financial support from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) on 6th March 2019 at IISER Thiruvananthapuram. The symposium aims to capture the recent developments in the area of functional supramolecular chemistry. This will also provide a forum to exchange ideas, to discuss innovative and emerging results on self-assembly and supramolecular chemistry and to promote inter-discipline collaborations.

A special session will be conducted by the Royal Society of Chemistry on the Publishing Profile and Outreach Activities of RSC in India.

There is no registration fee for attending this conference and all are welcome to IISER-RSC conference!
