On behalf of the Division of Fundamental Research of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS), we are pleased to welcome you to the Fall Meeting 2016 of the Swiss Chemical Society. As in 2014, this year’s Fall Meeting is organized jointly by ETH Zürich and the University of Zürich.

The Swiss Chemical Society Fall Meeting is the largest annual scientific event in Switzerland. It offers a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and scientists of all levels, from both, academia and industry, to share the results of their research projects. It also stimulates the exchange of ideas between all generations of chemists, often creating the seeds for new projects and collaborations.

One of the highlights of this year’s Fall Meeting will be the Paracelsus Award Lecture presented by Prof. Michael Graetzel of the EPF Lausanne. The Scientific Program will offer invited and contributed lectures as well as poster presentations in the following areas of chemistry:

  • Analytical Sciences
  • Catalysis Science Engineering
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Inorganic Coordination Chemistry
  • Medicinal Chemistry Chemical Biology
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Polymers, Colloids Interfaces.
As in previous years, the best poster presentations and oral contributions in each session will be awarded prizes. There will also be a Commercial Exhibition.
