16th Tetrahedron Symposium

Challenges in Bioorganic & Organic Chemistry

16-19 June 2015 | Grand Hyatt Berlin, Germany

Elsevier’s Tetrahedron Symposium is the recognised annual meeting and information point for reporting advances in bioorganic & organic chemistry. The intention of this conference is to provide an intimate and relaxed environment, to stimulate fresh thinking and creative ideas, in a scientific field impacting so importantly on life and medical sciences.

Leading international experts lead a topical programme supplemented by selected contributed oral presentations and a comprehensive poster session.

A pre-conference workshop ‘The Academia-Industry Interface in Chemistry and Drug Discovery’ will take place on Tuesday 16 June.

Be a part of the 16th Tetrahedron Symposium

Abstracts are invited by 24 April 2015 for poster presentation on the following topics

  • Stereoselective synthesis
  • Synthesis and property of functional molecules
  • Total synthesis of natural products
