17th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium

 Namur, Belgium    July 5-10, 2020

**We advise you to book your accomodation well in advance and benefit from our special rates**

The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis.

The BOSS will cover a broad range of timely topics of modern organic synthesis, including asymmetric synthesis, chemical biology, electrosynthesis, medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, photocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, supramolecular chemistry, sustainable chemistry, total synthesis… and many more!

The BOSS XVII Symposium Programme will include:

  • A one-day course on Asymmetric Catalysis by the recipient of the 2020 Tetrahedron Chair
    Prof. Eric JACOBSEN (Harvard University, US)
  • A lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2020 Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
    Prof. Phil BARAN (The Scripps Research Institute, US) 
  • a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
