The 40 International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC40) will be held 9–13 September 2012 at the Congress Palace in Valencia, Spain. ICCC is the longest-running conference series in the field of coordination chemistry. It started in 1950 and has now become a premiere venue for discussion of the latest developments in this area of chemistry.
The ICCC is coming back to Europe for the first time since 2002 (the most recent editions took place in Heidelberg, Germany, 2002; Merida, Mexico, 2004; Cape Town, South Africa, 2006; Jerusalem, Israel, 2008; and Adelaide, Australia, 2010). ICCC40 is expected to attract more than a thousand participants from all over the world to discuss the use of coordination chemistry to design new functional molecules and supramolecular materials exhibiting useful chemical, physical or biological properties. Some key topics include the design and applications of metal-organic frameworks; the crystal engineering of supramolecular functional materials; the molecular design of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts; the design of coordination compounds for energy and environmental applications; the molecular nanoscience; and the use of metals in medicine and protein design.
Eight plenary speakers will present their latest research along with 72 invited speakers. The program will also include some 150 contributed short talks and four poster sessions, which will provide participants the opportunity to highlight their recent work.
