ABOUT

UKCC2021

ORGANISED BY THE SCHOOL OF CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY BELFAST

It is our pleasure to welcome you to participate in the 7th UK Catalysis Conference (UKCC), taking place from Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th January 2021

The UK Catalysis Conference (UKCC) is regularly attended by delegates from over 12 countries including the UK, EU, Asia and Latin America. Delegates also possess a variety of backgrounds and experience levels, with our attendess ranging from academic and industrial researchers, to experimentalists, theoreticians and students.

 

The 7th annual UKCC, which will take place entirely online, is set to be yet another exciting event, providing opportunities for catalysis scientists and engineers from across the academic and industrial communities to meet, network, and discuss the entire spectrum of catalysis, from organocatalysis, biocatalysis, and homogenous/heterogenous catalysis.

 

UKCC 2021 is organised under the auspices of:

 

  • The Surface Reactivity and Catalysis Special Interest Group of The Royal Society of Chemistry

  • The Applied Catalysis Special Interest Group of The Royal Society of Chemistry

  • The UK Catalysis Hub

You can find out more about UKCC 2020 below, and using the links at the top of the this page - the UKCC 2021 website will be updated consistently ahead of the event, so please check this site regularly for updates.
