1st U.S.-Spain Workshop on asymmetric chemical synthesis and catalysis

Jornada FUE-UJI

1st U.S.-Spain Workshop on asymmetric chemical synthesis and catalysis
(13-15th September 2010)

Chemical synthesis and catalysis in an asymmetric fashion have emerged as important areas in chemistry in the last decades. United States is a very well-known leader country in chemistry and especifically in asymmetric synthesis and catalysis and Spain has become a very promising country during the last  years. The interaction among colleagues in the same field can contribute positively.
This three-day workshop held on the Hotel “El Palasiet” (Benicàssim) will be a combination of lectures, poster session and discussion.
The goal of this workshop is to create a forum of interaction among researchers of the field from Spain and the United States.
