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.
Organic photocatalysis is certainly one of the synthesis tools which have the potential to change the face of organic chemistry. The diverse communities who are working on new organic reactions, synthesizing new photocatalysts or designing devices and processes to optimize the chemical engineering of photocatalysis are intended to meet and exchange the newest information out of their research lab.
This Beilstein Nanotechnology Symposium wants to bring together tribologists from different disciplines such as physics, chemistry, and materials science in order to further develop the molecular picture of tribological processes and to contribute to the development of materials and methods for friction reduction, wear protection, and lubrication.
