Heterocyclic and Synthetic Short Courses
Three short courses are planned on Catalysis (Bert Maes, University of Antwerp, Belgium), Synthetic Chemistry (Gordon Gribble, Dartmouth College, US), and Heterocyclic Chemistry (John Joule, University of Manchester, UK). These are suitable for attendees from both industry and academia. Each short course alone should serve as an introduction or refresher to the particular topic. A Course Manual will be provided that contains copies of lecture slides and references.
