The Turkish Chemical Society and Mersin University Faculty of Science and Letters, Department of Chemistry have reached a mutual understanding to host the twenty eighth National Chemistry Congresse between 15–21 August 2016 at Uğur Oral Cultural Centre, located in Mersin University at the Çiftlikköy Campus. These Congresses, consistently organized since 1984 in a different university each year, are coordinated by the Turkish Chemicals Society.
Research topics today transcend departmental boundaries, making it unnecessary to conduct parallel sessions in department branches. Therefore, five separate parallel sessions, where similar topics are discussed in the same hall, are planned. The congress will offer presentations from five separate topics, with one being the main topic. Moreover, panels concerning the issues in chemistry education and energy applications, as well as developments in the polymer and plastic sectors, will be held.
