Workshop « Electron Transfer, Radical Ions and Radical Chemistry »

When:From Thu 23/03 to 01h00 to Fri 24/03 to 01h00

Where:Université Lyon 1 Campus LyonTech - La Doua


University Lyon 1 organize a workshop “Electron Transfer, Radical Ions and Radical Chemistry” on March 23 and 24, 2017 at Campus LyonTech – La Doua.

This workshop will focus on electron-transfer reactions in organic synthesis, catalysis and polymerization processes, including theory as well as novel radical processes applied in natural products synthesis.
We will discuss the latest advances, exchange ideas and future possible joint collaborations.

This workshop will honor Professor John A. Murphy (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland) who will be an invited Professor at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 in March-April
