40th International Conference on Coordination Chemistry

The "40 International Conference on Coordination Chemistry? (ICCC40), will be held at the Valencia Conference Centre September 9-13, 2012. 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 VCC will be the first venue in Europe since 2002 and organization expects to attract more than a thousand participants from all over the world to discuss on 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; the use of metals in medicine and protein design.

8 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.
