General Information

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 9th International Conference on Heteroatom Chemistry (ICHAC-9) to be held in Oviedo (Spain) from June 30 to July 4, 2009.

The International Conference on Heteroatom Chemistry (ICHAC) is an established international forum for the presentation and discussion of research results on the diverse fields of Heteroatom Chemistry.

Previous ICHAC meetings have been organized every three years in different countries: 2007 (Riverside, USA); 2004 (Shangai, China); 2001 (Lodz, Poland); 1998 (London, Ontario, Canada); 1995 (Seoul, Korea); 1992 (Riccione, Italy); 1989 (Albany, New York, USA), 1987 (Kobe, Japan).

Now is about time to come to Europe again, for the first time to Spain, and also to become a biennial event.

Following the tradition of these conferences, ICHAC-9 will be a major scientific event, bringing together organic and inorganic chemists all over the world sharing their interests on the different areas of Heteroatom Chemistry, such as applications in synthesis, catalysis, polymers and materials.

The conference programme will consist on plenary and invited lectures, as well as short communications, poster sessions and exhibitions.

We look forward to welcoming you in Oviedo

José Barluenga
President of the organizing committee, ICHAC-9


The conference will take place at the Auditorio Principe Felipe, located near the historic center of the city of Oviedo. The Auditorium offers excellent facilities for conferences and has hosted many international events.
