XIth International Meeting on Boron Chemistry (IMEBORON XI), 28 July-2 August 2002, Moscow, Russia

> Back to Calendar

This triennial meeting provides an international forum for presentation of the latest results and future trends as well as for discussion of the key problems in various fields of boron chemistry. The main goals of the conference are to assess the state-of-the-art in boron chemistry, to encourage newcomers to the field, and to give experts fresh motivation for future development. Another principal objective is to intensify the dialogue among young scientists, academia, and industry. For a long time, boron compounds have played an important role in fundamental chemistry, owing to an exclusively fortunate combination of their unique structure and a wide range of practical applications.

Boron compounds are used as fuels, in design of thermally stable materials, in microelectronics, in agriculture, and in medicine (including boron neutron capture therapy for cancer). Many classes of organoboron and inorganic boron compounds are applied in modern fine organic synthesis and asymmetrical synthesis (e.g., for obtaining biologically important natural compounds and pharmaceuticals, for creating modern nanomaterials, and as catalyst components in stereoselective alkene polymerization). Two prominent chemists, Prof. W. N. Lipscomb and Prof. H. C. Brown, received Nobel Prizes for their outstanding achievements in the field of boron chemistry.

Scientific sessions at IMEBORON XI will cover the following areas:

  • theoretical studies
  • organoboron compounds
  • boranes and carboranes
  • metallaboranes and metallacarboranes
  • applications in organic synthesis and catalysis
  • applications in medicine
  • synthesis and catalysis
  • materials and polymers

Approximately 300 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend IMEBORON XI.
