On-Surface Synthesis International Workshop (OSS-18)

On-surface synthesis unites the easy tunability of molecular materials and the promises of self-assembly as a revolutionary production method, with the sturdiness of covalently bonded structures. This most attractive combination is drawing the interest of a rapidly increasing number of researchers. Important efforts are being devoted to augment the still scarcely equipped on-surface synthesis toolbox, to improve our understanding of the chemical reaction mechanisms, as well as to the synthesis and characterization of new molecular architectures of potential use in diverse applications.

Because this approach bridges across the fields of chemistry, physics and materials science, the aim of this second edition of the "On-Surface Synthesis" international workshop is to bring together researchers working in this field from different perspectives. Doing so we hope to provide a diverse and stimulating environment to present and discuss the present, past and future of this novel and promising synthetic route.

This conference will take place in San Feliu de Guixols during September 24-28, 2018 at the Eden Roc resort.
