6th National Retrosynthesis Competition

GBP

SCI, London, UK
Friday 15 March 2019
Organised by SCI's Young Chemists' Panel, SCI's Fine Chemicals Group, RSC's Heterocyclic & Synthesis Group and RSC's Organic Division Council

Synopsis

For many years, the UK has produced high calibre synthetic organic chemists, able to retrosynthetically disconnect complex molecules and natural products then solve the challenging problem associated with the forward synthesis. To celebrate this and following on from the success of the previous three competitions, we are pleased to announce the 6th SCI/RSC National Retrosynthesis Competition.

The event will showcase the calibre of UK chemists from both industry and academia and provide a platform for them to demonstrate their retrosynthetic and forward synthetic prowess. Entries will be shortlisted to a final 10 teams who will then be invited to present at SCI's prestigious headquarters in London. Following the presentations, an exciting line up of the UK's leading academic and industrial synthetic chemists will judge the event, with the top three teams winning specifically designed trophies, in addition to the acclaim and praise from peers, colleagues and the wider Chemistry community for winning the event.
