Reaction Mechanisms Conference
This distinguished conference has held a position of long-standing significance in mechanistic chemistry since its founding sixty-two years ago. The RMC resembles a Gordon Research Conference in both size and format. Discussion and sharing of ideas at the forefront of the field has always been the style. Subjects traditionally include organic, organometallic, inorganic, and biological studies with significant mechanistic implications. The scope has broadened in the past decade; initially the focus was on mechanistic organic chemistry in the traditional sense, with emphasis on the topics and controversies that had great impact on the development of organic chemistry as a whole. The list of the organizers for the early conferences includes the names of many of the founding fathers of modern organic chemistry.
In August 2009, the Executive Committee of the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry (DOC) and the Governing Board of the Reaction Mechanisms Conference (RMC) entered into a formal partnership. This partnership includes an agreement for continuing financial support from DOC for the RMC, which is held every two years, in years alternate to the National Organic Symposium (NOS). Through solidifying this relationship with the RMC, DOC will benefit by extending support for a broad spectrum of contemporary organic chemistry for its members. In return for its support, DOC will gain the opportunity for oversight and direct input into the RMC programming via representation on the Governing Board.
