Categories: News

The next National Organic Chemistry Symposium (NOS) will be held from Sunday, June 5 to Thursday, June 9, 2011 on the campus of Princeton University.

The National Organic Chemistry Symposium is the premier event sponsored by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society to highlight recent advances in organic chemistry.  The 42nd NOS will feature 13 invited speakers -Joseph Armstrong, Carolyn Bertozzi, Benjamin Cravatt, Vy Dong, Dennis Dougherty, Dieter Enders, Jean Frechet, Amir Hoveyda, Michael Krische, Colin Nuckolls, M. Christina White, Anthony Wood and Hisashi Yamamoto, plus the 2011 Roger Adams Awardee, Robert Grubbs.

The goal of the symposium is to present a distinguished roster of speakers that represents the current status of the field of organic chemistry, in terms of breadth and creative advances. Four large poster sessions and social events will round out the schedule, and cultural and recreational activities abound in scenic Princeton and nearby in Philadelphia, New York City and at the Jersey Shore.

The Division of Organic Chemistry is pleased to offer thirty travel awards ($500/award) for undergraduate students to cover registration and a portion of expenses for the meeting.  In addition, the Division will provide ten Awards ($600/award) to faculty at undergraduate institutions. Please see the 2011 NOS website for details.
