International Conference on Phosphorus Chemistry

Częstochowa, July 5-9 2021

Dear Colleagues,

     We take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 23rd International Conference on Phosphorus Chemistry (ICPC-23), which will be held from the 5th to the 9th of July 2021 in the on-line formula, based on the digital infrastructure of the Jan Dlugosz University in Czestochowa, Poland. Our decision to organize this meeting in online formula is forced by the current uncertainties related to the pandemic situation in the world, which excludes a real time conference or a hybrid meeting with a certain and sufficiently large number of participants. We are able to organize ICPC23 as a virtual meeting because so far 9 (out of 11) plenary and 24 (out of 32) invited lecturers have confirmed their willingness to deliver lectures online. We sincerely hope that we will know the final number of plenary and invited lecturers very soon. For technical reasons the scientific program of the conference will be limited to plenary and invited lectures delivered online and to a poster collection that will also be available on the Internet.

     ICPC-23 follows a long tradition started with the first conference held in 1964 in Heidelberg (Germany). Since then, the next meetings have been organized all over the world. As during previous ICPC meetings, diverse aspects of phosphorus chemistry will be represented. Conference topics to be presented virtually as lectures and posters are as follows:
     • Advanced Methods in the Synthesis of Phosphorus Compounds
     • Theory, Mechanism, Stereochemistry and Reactive Phosphorus Intermediates
     • Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry
     • Phosphorus-based Catalysts in Organic Synthesis
     • Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
     • Green Chemistry

We believe that your virtual participation and online presentation of your own achievements will be vital to the success of the Conference.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we invite everyone to a virtual visit to Częstochowa in July 2021.
