The Organizers gladly invite you to the 14th Ferrocene Colloquium in Konstanz, Germany (February the 21st to 23rd, 2016)
From small beginnings, the Ferrocene Colloquium has become a well-established European forum focusing on the chemistry of metallocenes and other π-complexes, but extending to metal-organic chemistry in general. Thematically all aspects ranging from the synthesis, chemical properties and reactivity of new compounds, their use in catalysis and materials science to biological and medicinical aspects are covered.
By tradition, the Ferrocene Colloquium offers a forum particularly for younger researchers - MSc students, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and young faculty members - to present their most recent results. Only a few invited keynote lectures by leading researchers in their fields will therefore be organized. A poster session will form an integral part of the meeting to foster the informal exchange of latest developments in this field of chemistry.
We are glad that the following international renowned speakers have agreed to present keynote lectures:
Prof. Dr. Katja Heinze; Johannes Gutenberg University, Germany:
"Electron Transfer, Hydrogen Bonds and Radicals in Organometallic Systems"
Prof. Dr. Stéphane Rigaut; Université de Rennes, France:
"Molecular Switches with Organometallic Carbon-Rich Complexes"
Prof. Dr. Peter Sadler; University of Warwick, UK:
"Organometallic Anticancer Complexes with New Mechanisms of Action"
Prof. Dr. Saverio Santi; Università di Padova, Italy:
"The “Neverending Story” of Ferrocene: Charge Transfer in Ferrocenyl Conjugated Complexes"
Prof. Dr. Matthias Tamm; TU Braunschweig:
"Phosphorus-Functionalized Cycloheptatrienyl-Cyclopentadienyl Sandwich Complexes"
