Date: July 3, 2022 - July 8, 2022

Originally scheduled for 2020, this prestigious event has been postponed to 2022.

The BOSS-conference 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, initially planned for July 2020 in Namur, will include:

  • A one-day course by the recipient of the Tetrahedron Chair
  • A lecture delivered by the recipient of the Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
  • 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.

The Asynt team will be exhibiting 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 our chemists.  We do hope that you’ll come and say hello!
