Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

26th IUPAC International Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry

Since its inception in 1972, the ICPOC conferences have been the leading international gatherings on physical organic chemistry and its applications. Traditionally, physical organic chemistry relates molecular structure to chemical behavior, by means of the study of structure, reactivity, mechanism, and equilibrium in organic systems, aiming at the quantitative, molecular level understanding of their properties. While it is still the primary role of this core discipline, nowadays, physical organic chemistry has already evolved into a multidisciplinary field, extending into materials, energy, biology sciences and so on. This comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach plays a pivotal role in the development of chemical sciences, expanding their boundaries, and reflects on the vibrant and enlightening scientific discussions usually held in ICPOC meetings.

The 26th ICPOC is set to be an exciting event that will bring together researchers, scientists, and professionals from various fields to share knowledge and insights on the latest advancements in physical organic chemistry. The conference will focus on four main topics: Organic structure and chemical reactivity; Reaction mechanism and application; Supramolecular assembly, and AI & New POC frontiers.

Together with an outstanding scientific program, you will be exposed to the colours, flavours, tastes, history and traditions of Beijing, the over 800 years old capital city of China.
