We cordially invite you to attend the 14th Pannonian International Symposium on Catalysis, which will be held at the High Tatras, in the GRAND HOTEL BELLEVUE, located in Starý Smokovec, on 3 – 7 September, 2018.
The scope of the Symposium follows the 28 years tradition of previous Pannonian Symposia and it covers diverse aspects of catalysis.
The major topics of the symposium:
- Homogeneous catalysis – including catalysis for fine chemicals, organometallic catalytic complexes, regio- and stereoselectivity aspects in catalysis, etc.
- Heterogeneous catalysis – including preparation and characterization of the catalysts, applied catalysis, theoretical fundamentals of catalysis, noble metal catalysts, zeolites, etc.
- Organocatalysis – including processes when the catalysts operate both through the transient formation of covalent bonds as well as through non-covalent interactions, etc.
- Environmental catalysis and photocatalysis – including semiconducting photocatalysts, photoinduced charge separation processes, electrocatalysis, photocatalytic oxidation processes, etc.
- Industrial catalytic processes – including catalysis in industrial technologies, large scale operations, petroleum chemistry, polymers production, catalysts for inorganic commodities, operation unit design, process optimization, etc.
- Catalysis-related materials, nanostructures and nanotechnologies – including surface science, bottom-up approaches, molecular templating, characterization techniques of the materials, etc.
- Biocatalysis – including enzyme catalysis, catalysis in biotechnology, DNA catalysis, etc.
- Emerging areas – catalysis over MOFs, ZIFs, graphene, graphene oxide, composite materials, lab-on-chip catalysis, DFT models, electrochemisty – including development of techniques and their applications, research on cultural heritage – including development of techniques and their applications, etc.
We are looking forward to meeting you in the High Tatras in 2018.
