More than 200 teachers and students from the Key Laboratory participated in the forum. The theme of this forum is "Elemento-Organic Compounds: Synthesis and Applications", and Prof. Chunming Cui, director of the Key Laboratory, is the chairman of the conference. The forum invited 18 experts and scholars from well-known universities and research institutions internal and abroad to conduct academic exchanges. At the same time, the forum received 40 posters from registered participants outside the school and students at Nankai University.
Prof. Cui, delivered the opening speech and introduced the overview of the State Key Laboratory of Elemento-Organic Chemistry and the historical heritage of the EOC Forum, as well as expressed warm welcome to the guests on behalf of all teachers and students of the Key Laboratory. The foreign scholars including Prof. Douglas W. Stephan (the University of Toronto), Prof. Gerhard Erker (the University of Münster), Prof. Martin Oestreich (the Technical University of Berlin) Alexander Radosevich (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Prof. Shigehiro Yamaguchi (Nagoya University), Japan Prof. Ryo Shintani (Osaka University), Prof. Shigeyoshi Inoue (Technical University of Munich), Prof Rei Kinjo (Nanyang Technological University), Prof. Rebecca Melen (Cardiff University), Prof Masayuki Wasa (Boston College), Prof Shaozhong Ge (National University of Singapore), as well as the domestic scholars including Academician Qilin Zhou (Nankai University), Prof. Guoxin Jin (Fudan University), Prof. Wanbin Wang (Shanghai Jiaotong University), Prof. Wenjun Tang (the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences), Prof. Junliang Zhang (Fudan University), Prof. Xiaochen Wang and Prof. Peng Qian (Nankai University) attended this forum and gave a wonderful academic talk. The forum report roundly demonstrated the latest achievements in the synthesis and application of new elemental organic reagents such as B, P, Si, etc. from different angles, and promoted exchanges and cooperation among participants in the field of elemental organic chemistry.
