New Horizons in Catalysis

19 Nov 2012 - 20 Nov 2012 - The Mövenpick Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic

Bookmark and Share

Hype or reality? Much has been made of developments in catalysis in synthetic organic chemistry. This Scientific Update event aims to bring together industrial chemists and academics to learn about emerging catalytic methods and their industrial application. Featuring top speakers from academia and industry, this event will provide industrial chemists with an unparalleled opportunity to explore how catalysis is beginning to change the landscape of process chemistry.

How will this conference help you?

This conference will attract an international audience of around 100-150 delegates and is intended for senior chemists and technical managers from the Pharmaceutical, Fine and Speciality Chemical, Agrochemical, Flavour, Fragrance and Colour Chemical industries.

A detailed, high-quality book of conference proceedings covering all the presentations is provided and there will be ample opportunity for questions and stimulating discussion during the conference.

Ancestors of Land Plants Were Wired to Make the Leap to Shore
When the algal ancestor of modern land plants made the transition from aquatic environments to an inhospitable shore 450 million years ago, it changed the world by dramatically altering climate and setting the stage for the vast array of terrestrial life.
Photosynthesis Gene Could Help Crops Grow in Adverse Conditions
A gene that helps plants to remain healthy during times of stress has been identified by researchers at Oxford University.
Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells Could be "Suffocated" by Anti-diabetic Drug
A new study shows that pancreatic cancer stem cells (PancSCs) are virtually addicted to oxygen-based metabolism, and could be “suffocated” with a drug already used to treat diabetes.
Scientists Learn How to Predict Plant Size
VIB and UGent scientists have developed a new method which allows them to predict the final size of a plant while it is still a seedling.
Scientists Home In On Origin Of Human, Chimpanzee Facial Differences
A study of species-specific regulation of gene expression in chimps and humans has identified regions important in human facial development and variation.
Nanoporous Gold Sponge Makes Pathogen Detector
Sponge-like nanoporous gold could be key to new devices to detect disease-causing agents in humans and plants, according to UC Davis researchers.
Genetic Manipulation for Algal Biofuel Production
Studies of the genes involved in oil synthesis in microalgae allow scientists to use a gene promoter to increase algal production of triacylglycerols, which in turn enhances potential biofuel yields.
Phosphorous Fertilizer
UD researchers identify behaviors of nanoparticle that shows promise as nanofertilizer.
Marijuana Genome Unraveled
A study by Canadian researchers is providing a clearer picture of the evolutionary history and genetic organization of cannabis, a step that could have agricultural, medical and legal implications for this valuable crop.
Grape Waste Could Make Competitive Biofuel
The solid waste left over from wine-making could make a competitive biofuel, University of Adelaide researchers have found.
