Welcome Letter

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is our pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium on Activation of Dioxygen and Homogeneous Oxidation Catalysis (ADHOC 2022), that will be held in the city of Girona, Catalonia (Spain). The meeting will take place from September 4th to 7th 2022 in the Auditori de la Mercè.

ADHOC is a triannual international conference that provides an ideal setting for interactions among academic and industrial researchers with expertise in the activation of molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, organic oxidation reactions, and homogenous oxidation catalysis, in general. Recent ADHOCs took place in Xi’an - China (2018), Madison - USA (2015), Jerusalem - Israel (2012), Venice - Italy (2008), Cologne - Germany (2005), Atlanta - USA (2002) and York - UK (1999).

ADHOC conferences have an outstanding reputation for excellence and highly engaged discussion, and they have become a focal point for scientists at the forefront of the development of new catalysts, new oxidants, new methods for catalytic oxidation, ranging from commodity chemicals to the stereoselective oxidation of pharmaceutical synthetic intermediates, new mechanistic insights into oxidative processes, and many other subjects related to oxidations. The meeting also aims at promoting new collaborations and it brings together young and senior scientists in a beautiful environment and in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

 We hope to count on your participation to contribute to this meeting.

Best regards,

The Organizing Committee
