Organic Synthesis

11-15 June 2006, Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico

The 16th International Conference on Organic Synthesis, co-sponsored by IUPAC, Academia Mexicana de Ciencias, and the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society, will take place in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico, 11–15 June 2006.

Hoping to match the fantastic success achieved at previous conferences in this series, ICOS-16 has secured the participation of seven outstanding plenary speakers: Luiz C. Diaz (Brazil), Eric N. Jacobsen (USA), Paul Knochel (Germany), Shu Kobayashi (Japan), Stephen F. Martin (USA), Dieter Seebach (Switzerland), and Joaquín Tamariz (México). The 2006 Thieme-IUPAC Prize winner—who has yet to be selected—will also be a plenary speaker; see Call for Nomination. Also scheduled are 15 renowned invited speakers: Carsten Bolm (Germany), Margaret Brimble (New Zealand), Cathleen Crudden (Canada), Gregory Fu (USA), Thoru Fukuyama (Japan), Miguel A. García-Garibay (USA), Cesare Gennari (Italy), Minoru Isobe (Japan), Eun Lee (Korea), Shengming Ma (China), Carmen Nájera (Spain), Régis Réau (France), Philippe Renaud (Switzerland), and Margarita Suárez (Cuba).

In addition, 36 invited experts will partake in 6 selected symposia in the areas of medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, enantioselective synthesis of ß-amino acids (Ferenc Fulop, chair), organolithium compounds in synthesis (William F. Bailey, chair), industrial asymmetric synthesis, and applications of microwave in organic synthesis (Nicholas E. Leadbeater, chair).

The participation of attendees in the academic program is strongly encouraged. Thus, up to 600 poster presentations will be scheduled. Ample space for chemical exhibitors will also be available.

In the interest of facilitating interaction between participants, several social events are being planned, including an excursion to the archeological site of Uxmal, a banquet at a local hacienda, and a performance by the Yucatán’s Folkloric Ballet at Mérida’s Main Theater.

Yucatán is located in the southeast of México. The state´s capital is Mérida, which contains an international airport. Travelers can also fly from many countries to the city of Cancún and then to Mérida. The Yucatán area offers a variety of attractions for tourists, such as colonial cities, archeological sites, beaches, ecological reserves, haciendas, and more.
