Join Asynt at BOSS XVII from 5-10 July 2020


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.

Taking place in Namur, Belgium from 5th – 10th July 2020, 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 ChairProf. Eric JACOBSEN (Harvard University, US)
  • a lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2020 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

Dr Kerry Elgie will be on hand at this event to answer any questions you may have about the wide range of tools and equipment available from the Asynt team.  Come along and say hello and find out more about the water-saving apparatus we can offer such as CondenSyn waterless air condensers and recirculating coolers, as well as DrySyn oil-free heating and cooling blocks, bench top reactors and much more!
