Emerging Landscape of Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis

Organic Chemistry Division

The Emerging Landscape of Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis symposium is at the forefront of catalysis and transformative chemical research. The symposium highlights four key areas shaping the landscape of modern chemistry: innovative catalyst design, sustainable reactions, and holistic understanding of chemical reactions fostering innovation and breakthroughs to address global challenges.

  • Innovation across diverse sectors, leveraging catalytic processes and transformative chemical reactions.
  • Development of catalytic reactions rooted in C–H bond activation, unlocking pathways to discover specialized molecules in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and materials research.
  • The design and innovation of novel catalysts, essential for sustainable chemical reactions that pave the way for a greener future.
  • Catalytic evaluations addressing synthetically challenging reactions, directly contributing to renewable energy, sustainability, biology, and material chemistry.

Call for Abstracts: We invite early career researchers and research scholars to submit an abstract and present their work in a flash talk.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are Flash presentations?

    They are brief, impactful, and convey information about a novel protocol, perspective, technique, or research results. For instance, one Flash Talk may describe an innovative interdisciplinary research outcome. Another may describe results for a pilot/prototype study.

  • Can I submit an abstract if I'm not an early career researcher?

    This symposium focuses on early career researchers, but all researchers are welcome to attend. However, the format of the presentation will be 8 minutes flash talk.

  • What is the submission deadline for abstracts?

    The submission deadline for abstracts is April 1, 11:59 PM ET.

  • What is the required format for abstracts?

    Abstracts should be 2500 characters or less and include the title, author(s), and a concise description of your research.

  • Can I include images or figures in my abstract?

    Yes, limited use of images or figures is permitted to enhance your abstract's content.

  • When will I know if my abstract is accepted?

    Presenters can expect to receive their acceptance notices approximately 3 months before the meeting. Scheduling notices are sent periodically starting approximately 2 months before the meeting.

  • What if I can't attend the symposium on the scheduled date?

    While attending is encouraged, if you can't participate in real time, you can still submit an abstract for inclusion. In case the abstract is accepted, you can share a recorded version of flash talk.

  • Do I need to register separately if my abstract is accepted?

    Yes, accepted presenters will have to register for ACS Fall 2024. Symposium organizers will reach out to confirm their participation.
