Welcome to the 3rd Oldenburg Symposium on Chemical Bond Activation!

March 8th, 2021
Opening at 8:50 a.m. CET

The activation of chemical bonds is a highly discussed research topic that carries large economic potential and provides sustainable access to chemical products. The topic connects different disciplines like organic, inorganic, physical and theoretical chemistry as well as industrial and biochemistry. To understand the behavior of such reactions, it is important to consider a wide range of aspects and exchange knowledge with experts on the relevant research fields.

In order to provide a platform for scientific communication and networking, the members of the Research Training Group 2226 invite you to participate in the 3rd Oldenburg Symposium on Chemical Bond Activation.
