The interest to use mechanical forces for inducing chemical reactivity has continuously risen. Understanding the mechanistic aspects of microscopic and macroscopic mechanochemistry is of paramount importance to control chemical reactivity, facilitate otherwise unachievable reactions and to apply mechanochemical techniques in process development. At this symposium experts in the area will bridge the boundaries of their fields to consolidate various aspects of mechanochemistry.
The symposium will take place in the Hotel Jagdschloss Niederwald on top of the Rheingau heights of Ruedesheim in Germany near Frankfurt. The number of participants is limited to 50 – 60 including 20 invited speakers and the program is designed specifically to allow sufficient time for discussions and a stimulating exchange of thoughts and ideas.
