The Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) celebrates its XXXVI Biennial Meeting at the Meliá Hotel in Sitges (Barcelona), from 25 to 29 June 2017. The Department of Chemistry at the Autonomous University of Barcelona assumes with enthusiasm his organization. According to the format established in the last Biennals, the meeting is organized in specialized symposia (24), which constitute a broad range of the most active fields of current chemical research. Presents a high level of internationalization and a list of plenary (5) and invited (more than 100) prestigious speakers. The scientific program also includes a very large number of oral presentations as well as poster sessions.

We look forward to seeing you in Sitges!
