The Beilstein-Institut organizes and supports scientific exchange between researchers by regularly held symposia. The number of participants is limited providing a convivial atmosphere for the ready exchange of thoughts and ideas.
The Beilstein Enzymology Symposia (formerly 'Beilstein ESCEC Symposia') deal with enzymes, which play an essential role for all processes of life. This symposia series provide not only a platform for the presentation of the latest findings in mechanistic and systemic enzymology but also for discussing standards for measuring and publication of such experimental data such as proposed by the STRENDA Commission.
Organic Chemistry Symposium - Synthesis
In 2014 the Beilstein Organic Chemistry Symposium was added to the portfolio of the Beilstein symposia. This event is closely related to selected Thematic Series in the Beilstein Journals of Organic Chemistry. The themes of this symposium, Flow Chemistry and Automated Chemical Synthesis, are rapidly evolving areas influenced by many interwoven subjects including robotics, continuous processing technologies, new and improved reaction monitoring devices and aspects of software design & control.
Organic Chemistry Symposium - Catalysis
Catalysis represents an important discipline of chemistry, since it offers a number of widely recognized benefits — catalysed reactions can be mediated under mild conditions, proceeding with high conversion and selectivity. New goals for catalysis are constantly being identified, including the sustainable production of valuable chemicals from renewable sources. Exciting results are to be expected from collaboration between academic and industrial scientists.
The scope of this Beilstein Nanotechnology Symposium covers novel developments and trends in the field of solar energy conversion and storage using nanoscale materials and concepts from chemistry, physics, and materials science. The key topics will include fundamental aspects of structural and chemical nanoscale characterization, new device and especially material concepts but also an overview for sustainable strategies for future developments.
