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

  • Advanced materials

  • Chemistry and environmental problems; analysis and control of environmental objects

  • Energy and resource saving chemical technologies

  • Chemical aspects of the life science

  • Chemical informatics

  • 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"

Important Dates:

Deadline for Registration Forms and Submission of Abstracts, 1 March 2003

Deadline for Advance Registration fees, 1 June 2003
