On behalf of the International Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to participate in the first ever International Symposium on the Organic Chemistry of Sulfur held in Canada! The University of Guelph will serve as the venue for an invigorating week of scientific and social interaction. The form of the symposium will be revealed in the coming months. 

ISOCS symposia are prestigious international scientific events that have been scheduled biannually since 1964 (Liblice, Czechoslovakia) mostly across Europe and Japan. Attracting attendees from industry, government, and academia, past symposia have covered a fascinating range of sulfur chemistry from theory to practical applications.

ISOCS-29 will be based on the following themes:  

  • Sulfur in Biochemistry and Health                                                   

  • Sulfur Containing Heterocycles 

  • Synthesis, Catalysis and Stereochemistry                                        

  • Sensors, Analysis and Interfaces

  • Materials Chemistry                                                                             

  • Coordination Chemistry with Sulfur Ligands

  • Theory, Mechanism & Reactive Intermediates                               

  • Industrial and Sustainable Sulfur Chemistry 

Stay tuned for future announcements.
