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 Chemistry Symposium - Electrifying organic Synthesis
Within the past decade electro-organic synthesis emerged as one of the hottest topics in contemporary organic chemistry. Using electricity as reagent to drive chemical transformations is a very sustainable and attractive method. The avoidance of reagent waste and the ability to use fluctuating electric power provides all prerequisites for electrosynthesis to not only become an indispensable future technology but also a potential disruptive technology. The symposium will cover the whole range of preparative electrosynthesis.
Since October 2009 the Glyco-Bioinformatics Symposium has taken place every two years. The aim of this symposium is to establish a network of experts in glycochemistry, biology, bioinformatics and computer sciences.
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.
