 Conference Overview


Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to extend to you a cordial invitation to attend the 24th International Conference on Phosphorus Chemistry (ICPC24), which will take place in Ningbo, China from November 12 to November 16, 2023. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to be part of this esteemed conference.

Since its inauguration in 1964 in honor of Georg Wittig, the late Nobel prize winner (Heidelberg, Germany), the ICPC series has been the premier international meeting devoted solely to PHOSPHORUS chemistry for the past 59 years, and we are proud to continue this tradition with ICPC24. The conference will provide a broad perspective on the latest developments in all domains of modern phosphorus chemistry, including interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of biology, material sciences, and applied/industrial chemistry.

The conference will be organized around five interrelated themes:1) Recent advances in new reagents and methods in phosphorus (asymmetric) syntheses, including theoretical aspects; 2) New applications of phosphorus catalysts in syntheses; 3) Latest developments concerning phosphorus-based compounds in life & health sciences, including methodologies for studying phosphorus-involving processes in living organisms; 4) Phosphorus material chemistry and applied science; and 5) Phosphorus in origin of life and space science.

We strongly encourage graduate students, postdoctoral, and early-career faculty to participate in ICPC24. By bringing together academic and industry researchers from diverse areas of phosphorus chemistry, ICPC24 will provide an exciting opportunity for the dissemination and exchange of new ideas, for networking with colleagues, and for establishing and strengthening collaborations.

We are confident that ICPC24 will be a highly stimulating and productive conference, and we look forward to welcoming you to Ningbo in 2023.
