June 16-21, 2019
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the “9th Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry (PSRC-9)” to be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California. The Symposium will be held from the 16th to the 21st of June 2019.
The Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry represents an important platform for announcing and discussing advances in our understanding of the chemistry of free radicals. The Symposium, which runs every two years, is one of the three major international meetings on radical chemistry (the other two being the International Symposium on Organic Free Radicals and the EUCHEM Conference on Free Radical Chemistry). PSRC-9 in Pacific Grove will follow the highly successful PSRC-8 meeting that was held in Brisbane in 2017. Previous, equally successful, symposia have been held in Singapore (2015), Vancouver (2013), Shirahama (2011), Shanghai (2009), Heron Island (2007), Daejeon (2006), and Kanazawa (2003).
The symposium will cover all aspects of free radical chemistry and will bring together industrial and academic chemists from all over the world to report their latest discoveries in the fields of synthetic radical reactions, radical polymerizations, mechanistic insights into important radical reactions, new radical-based functional molecules and materials, as well as all aspects of radicals impacting in biology and medicine. The scientific program of PSRC-9 will include plenary lectures and invited lectures as well as poster sessions.
All participants of the conference will be staying together at the Asilomar Conference Grounds, in the town of Pacific Grove. The conference grounds are located on 107 acres of the beautiful and scenic shorelines of the Asilomar State Beach, just south of the major bay area cities of San Francisco and San Jose. Monterey Bay Area’s cool-summer Mediterranean climate creates an ideal location for a Summer conference, as such, excursions will be included as part of the meeting.
As a further advantage, the symposium has been scheduled to run immediately before the 46th National Organic Symposium, the premier event sponsored by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society. This major conference will be held in Bloomington, Indiana from the 23rd to the 27th of June 2019 (nationalorganicsymposium.org).
