Novel Aromatic Compounds

Novel Aromatic Compounds

28 July–2 August 2013, Taipei, Taiwan

The International Symposium on Novel Aromatic Compounds was founded in 1970 by T. Nozoe, who discovered the first nonbenzenoid aromatic compound, hinokitiol, in Taipei. The name and the goal of this symposium series have evolved as the research and applications of aromatic compounds thriving in diverse range of disciplines. The 15th International Symposium on Novel Aromatic Compounds (ISNA-15), to take place 28 July–2 August 2013 in Taipei, will be a historic occassion. To continue the blossoming tradition of previous ISNA symposia, ISNA-15 will provide an interactive platform for researchers worldwide to present new findings and exchange innovative ideas on advanced synthesis, structure-property relationship, and applications of novel aromatic compounds.

The scientific program of this symposium includes the Nozoe memorial lecture, plenary lectures, invited lectures, oral communications, and poster presentations. Attendees will find Taipei to be a vibrant city where East meets West.

Symposium Topics

Confirmed plenary lecturers include Jean-Luc Brédas, Klaus Müllen, Eiichi Nakamura, Shie-Ming Peng, Timothy M. Swager, Yoshito Tobe, and Daoben Zhu. The Nozoe Lecturer will be Andrew B Holmes.
