Symposia

Analytical & Food Chemistry (AC)

The deep understanding of any system is critically dependent on chemical measurements and analytical chemistry is the science that provides new techniques, methods, and procedures for doing accurate and precise measurements. These measurements are applied for bringing answers for a plethora of social and economical demands. In this sense, analytical chemists are closely involved with the development of new instruments, improvement of well-established instrumental methods, and the development of new applications using modern technology and modern strategies for data treatment. Based on these multiple activities and considering the central theme “Sustainability & Diversity through Chemistry”, the Analytical & Food Chemistry Symposium will highlight topics related to food analysis, such as chemometrics, chemical speciation and foodomics, and also important topics which reflect trends in analytical sciences, such as use of lasers, advances in separation methods, (bio)chemical sensors, flow analysis, electroanalysis, and mass spectrometry. You are kindly invited to present the contributions of your research group and we are looking forward to welcome you in the coming IUPAC 2017.

Chemical Synthesis (CS)

Chemistry is an enabling science. No material of any type can be studied or utilized in a larger context unless it can be prepared, and thus Chemical Synthesis plays a central role in science, technology, and society, broadly defined. There is a constant demand in all quarters of society for new molecules in diverse arenas – from therapeutics to agrochemicals to functional materials of every description. Although it is probably true that, given enough resources and time, any reasonable molecule can be synthesized, substantial advances are still necessary to furnish a specific molecule in appropriate amounts under the modern constraints of time, economics, and environmental sustainability. The Chemical Synthesis symposium plans to cover the following four topics, which address many of the modern challenges of the discipline. Synthetic method; total synthesis of biologically active natural products; catalysis and structure, function, mechanisms and processes.

Symposium Organizers: Luiz F. Silva Jr (Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil - luizfsjr@iq.usp.br) and Gary Molander (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, EUA - gmolandr@sas.upenn.edu)

Energy, Water and Environmental Sciences (EE)

Natural waters contain a large number of chemicals reflecting rapid global dissemination of novel substances, including a full range of technology-critical elements (e.g., platinum group and rare earth elements) and emerging contaminants (e.g., PFAAs, hormones and phthalates) employed to improve the production of energy and/or commodities, especially due to the ever-expanding list of new technologies. The settlement of smart grids for electricity distribution together with the development of electric vehicles and renewable energy sources has enlarged a rising demand for advanced energy conversion and storage systems. Rechargeable batteries will continue to rely on Li-ion chemistry; however, post Li-ion systems — such as Li-S, Li-air, Na-ion — are expected to reach the stage of devices. Also these developments are accompanied by the up growth of electrochemical capacitors, fuel cells, metal-air batteries. Solar cells, biofuels, water splitting, hydrogen production and CO2 reduction are also important topics playing a leading role in the relation between energy and friendly environmental ways to assure a high efficiency of conversion and storage systems. To go further with sustainable technology, the understanding of the fundamental concepts of materials properties and the interactions with their environment, will be the key to find solutions which would satisfy the new society´s energy demands with a deep ecological concern. Therefore, this symposium is devoted to recent progress in fundamental science related to rechargeable batteries and electrochemical capacitors, fuel Cells, metal-air batteries, solar cells, biofuels, water splitting, hydrogen production and CO2 reduction. Additionally, this symposium will also focus on processes controlling the distribution, fate, bioavailability and environmental risks of technology-critical elements and emerging contaminants associated with the development of new products and technologies.

Symposium Organizers: Roberto M. Torresi (IQ-University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil – rtorresi@iq.usp.br) and Daniel Belanger (Département de chimie, Faculté des Sciences, University of Quebec, Montreal, Canada - belanger.daniel@uqam.ca).

Green Chemistry and Biotechnology (GB)

The development of safe and environmentally friend processes is the basis of green chemistry, an area that has been greatly expanded in the past years. Prevention or reduction of residues, use of renewable raw materials, handling of non-toxic reagents and products, as well as reduction of water and energy demands in the processes are among the goals of green chemistry. At the beginning, most of the concepts of green chemistry were applied in organic synthesis, aiming at eliminating or reducing the use of solvents, replacing toxic reagents and vanishing or minimizing the production of residues. These topics are still important and commonly pursued, especially concerning the production of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals. Nevertheless, the crescent climate changes, caused by the use of fossil resources, has enlarged the concept of green chemistry, which is now associated with sustainability. In this context, the use of biomass and CO2 as sources of biofuels and bio-derived chemicals has emerged as a response of Chemistry, as a whole, to the global warming issue. The symposium on Green Chemistry and Biotechnology will cover the recent progress and new technologies related to renewable energies, biomass processing, carbon dioxide capture and utilization, green methods in organic synthesis, valorization of industrial wastes and biomass residues, as well as biorefinery technologies.

Symposium Organizers: Claudio J. A. Mota (Institute of Chemistry, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – cmota@iq.ufrj.br) and Vitor Francisco Ferreira (Institute of Chemistry, Federal Fluminense University, Niterói, Brazil – cegvito@vm.uff.br)

Natural Products and Biodiversity (NB)

Historically, natural products are one of the oldest chemical areas of investigation and have been an inspiration for several Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Medical and Ecological research fields. From the elegance of a single structure to the intricacy of complex molecules, the diversity of natural compounds have been the subject of classical phytochemical and chemotaxonomy studies and of modern metabolomics and biosynthetics approaches alike, looking to produce relevant biological and pharmacological models to afford new therapeutic agents for human and animals disease or for agriculture evolution. In this scenario, the symposium is devoted to trail the recent progress in fundamental and applied science related to Natural Products Chemistry.

Physical, Biophysical and Computational Chemistry (PC)

Physical Chemistry influences all facets of Chemistry and its connection with other fields of Science for its focus on the basic aspects of all interactions involving atoms and molecules. From the simplest to the most complex systems, such as living systems, both in theoretical as well as in experimental efforts, Physical Chemistry seeks to unveil the fundamental basis for chemical processes and chemical reactions. This session seeks to present different aspects of the current frontiers in Physical Chemistry ranging from the development of Quantum Chemistry methods, theoretical approaches for investigation of biomolecules and biophysical processes as well as their resulting insights and the most recent advances in Spectroscopy including limit extremes such as fast and single molecule techniques. Sessions devoted to studies on Atmospheric Chemistry, and impact on air pollution and climate change, and on Heavy Elements, aiming to report recent studies on these critical materials, are also planned. Finally, the program includes a session devoted to discuss recent advances on both theoretical and experimental aspects of self-assembly and their relevance for controlling advanced materials properties and functions.

Symposium Organizers: Angela K. Wilson (Dept. Chemistry, Michigan State University, USA, wilson@chemistry.msu.edu) and Watson Loh (Institute of Chemistry, University of Campinas, Brazil, wloh@iqm.unicamp.br).
