XVII Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry
- IUPAC-sponsored event*
21–26 September 2003, Kazan, Russia
Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry usually takes place every five years and is the most prestigious national meeting of Russian chemists. The Ist Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry was held in St. Petersburg in 1907 and was dedicated to the memory of D. I. Mendeleev. The XVI Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry took place in St. Petersburg in 1998 and was dedicated to 250 years of chemistry research in Russia. The XVII Mendeleev Congress, which will be presided over by Professor Oleg M. Nefedov, will be held in Kazan, a famous scientific, industrial, and cultural center on the banks of the Volga where the East meets the West. Kazan is a nearly thousand-year old city considered to be a cradle of Russian organic chemistry.
The main goals of the congress are to (i) determine how to develop chemistry, chemical technology, and chemical education; (ii) integrate academic, applied, and university science; (iii) discuss how to use chemistry to solve important economic, ecological, and social problems; (vi) examine the urgent problems and prospects of chemical science; and (vii) broaden interdisciplinary and international co-operation.
The scientific program will cover the following areas:
Chemical science: the most important achievements and prospects for high technologies and advanced materials
Supramolecular chemistry and nanomaterials
Chemistry and environmental problems; analysis and control of environmental objects
Energy and resource saving chemical technologies
Chemical aspects of the life science
New instrumental methods in chemistry
Problems of chemical education
History and achievements of Russian chemists
Approximately 1500 scientific participants are expected to attend the Congress.
The following meetings will be held within the framework of the congress:
Russian-American Symposium on Chemical Education
VII International Conference on Chemistry of Carbenes and Related Intermediates
Symposium dedicated to the centenary of chromatography discovered by M. S. Zvet
Roundtable Discussion on "State and Development of Chemical Science in the Former Soviet Union Countries"
Deadline for Registration Forms and Submission of Abstracts, 1 March 2003
Deadline for Advance Registration fees, 1 June 2003
