Date: July 3, 2022 - July 8, 2022

Originally scheduled for 2020, BOSS XVII was postponed to 2022 and is now approaching fast.

This is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis.

The BOSS will cover a broad range of timely topics of modern organic synthesis, including asymmetric synthesis, chemical biology, electrosynthesis, medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, photocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, supramolecular chemistry, sustainable chemistry, total synthesis… and many more!

The BOSS XVII Symposium Programme will include:

    • A one-day course by the recipient of the 2020 Tetrahedron Chair
      Prof. Eric Jacobsen (Harvard University, United States)
    • A lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2020 Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
      Prof. Phil Baran (The Scripps Research Institute, United States)
    • A lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2022 Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
      Prof. Frank Glorius (University of Münster, Germany)
    • a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
    • poster sessions
    • an exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
    • social activities

The official symposium language is English.

Come and meet us

Dr Kerry Elgie

Dr Kerry Elgie will be representing Asynt at the symposium, giving you a great opportunity to take a closer look at the wide range of apparatus we offer and to speak with her about our innovative laboratory solutions.  You can see novel tools such as the LightSyn Illumin8 parallel photochemistry reactor, get to grips with the fReactor Flow Chemistry platform (now with photoreactor modules available), and see the latest addition to our waterless air condenser range, the CondenSyn MAXI – designed to meet all your larger scale reflux requirements.

You’ll find Asynt at booth number 7 – We do hope that you’ll come and say hello!
