Symposium Programme

The Symposium will take place in the Chemistry Department of the University of Coimbra.

The scientific programme will include plenary, keynote, invited lectures, oral communications and posters.

In order to accommodate all presentations there will be one session, or parallel sessions with the least possible superposition of topics.

The following speakers have already accepted to participate:
