Dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure to announce the 5th School-Conference on Catalysis for Young Scientists "Catalyst Design: From Molecular to Industrial Level” to be held on May 20-23, 2018 at N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry RAS, Moscow, Russia. This event continues the tradition established in Novosibirsk, Russia (2002), Altay, Russia (2005), Yekaterinburg, Russia (2009), and Kazan, Russia (2015).

The School-Conference is directed to young researchers, Ph.D. students and undergraduates involved in different fields of catalysis research. Catalysis is a fast developing multidisciplinary area facing the challenges of novel chemical technologies. The School will provide the students with approaches for acquiring a deep know-how and a strong background on the fundamentals of catalysis. The lectures of leading scientists will provide the basics of preparation, characterization and modeling of new catalysts, catalytic systems and catalytic processes. Particular attention will be paid to the role of catalysis in fine organic synthesis, electrochemistry, and environmental protection - the research areas attracting much attention of modern scientific society. Participants will have a unique opportunity to discuss their own research with leading experts in various fields.

We will be happy to see you at the School-Conference!
