OLD Welcome

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 15th Pannonian International Symposium on Catalysis, which will be held at the Baltic Sea coast, in the ASTOR HOTEL, located in Jastrzębia Góra, on 7 – 11 September, 2020.

The major topics of the symposium:

  1. Heterogeneous catalysis – including preparation and characterization of the catalysts, applied catalysis, theoretical fundamentals of catalysis, noble and transition metal catalysts, zeolites, etc.
  2. Homogeneous catalysis – including catalysis for fine chemicals, organometallic catalytic complexes, regio- and stereoselectivity aspects in catalysis, etc.
  3. Biocatalysis and organocatalysis – including enzyme catalysis, catalysis in biotechnology, DNA catalysis, processes when the catalysts operate both through the transient formation of covalent bonds as well as through non-covalent interactions, etc.
  4. Environmental catalysis and photocatalysis – including green chemistry, biomass conversion, CO2 conversion, photocatalysts, photoinduced charge separation processes, electrocatalysis, photocatalytic oxidation processes, etc.
  5. Industrial catalytic processes – catalysis in industrial technologies (including chemical engineering), large scale operations, petroleum chemistry, polymers production, catalysts for inorganic commodities, operation unit design, process optimization, etc.
  6. Low tonnage catalytic industrial processes – pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, agriculture (plant protection products), etc.
  7. Catalysis-related materials, nanostructures and nanotechnologies – icluding surface science, bottom-up approaches, molecular templating, characterization techniques of the materials, etc.
  8. 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.
  9. Didactic aspects of teaching various branches of catalysis – including specific software (ChemCad, LabView), new solutions and ideas, etc.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the Baltic Sea coast in 2020.
