22-ICOS @ Social Media


Dear speakers and delegates. We are aware that fraud messages are sent in the name of the Organization of 22-ICOS offering accomodations at special prizes. We confirm that all  the speakers have been already accomodated by the Organization, and the only Agency entitled to offer accomodations is the Apricot Agency.


It is for us a pleasure to announce that XXII International Conference on Organic Synthesis (22-ICOS) will be held in Florence on September 16-21 2018.

The Conference is sponsored by IUPAC and is regularly the site of presentation of the Thieme-IUPAC Prize award.

The Conference will include plenary lectures, invited lectures, and many oral and poster communications to allow as many as possible attendants to present their scientific results on the different field of organic synthesis. It will cover the broad spectrum of organic synthesis highlighting modern trends in:

  • Natural products synthesis
  • Synthetic methodology
  • Catalysis
  • New synthetic technologies
  • Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology
  • Synthesis of nano- and functionalized Materials
