Invitation from Organizer

Advances in technology to efficiently synthesize organic compounds have been remarkable in recent years, but it is extremely important to integrate organic reactions to supply complex bioactive compounds and organic materials more efficiently. In order to realize this proposition, it is important to not only develop new synthetic chemical methodology but also to have a look at growing instrumentation innovation such as microreaction technology and photo reactions using a flow system, and so on. We must do our utmost to build this new paradigm and we are convinced that this is a responsibility as a scientist who brings happiness of mankind.
The objective of the present symposium (ISONIS-11) will be to overview ongoing progress in organic synthesis as well as applications in interdisciplinary fields and to stimulate future researches through the discussions from a wide range of viewpoints, such as basic concepts and principles, new methods and reactions, syntheses of new materials and medicinal agents, automated synthesis, and so on. ISONIS-11 is supported by JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas "Middle Molecular Strategy", which focuses the efficient synthesis based on reaction integration aiming the development of bioactive middle-size molecules (MW ca. 400-4000) such as natural products, glycans, peptides, and nucleic acid drugs.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I look forward to welcoming you to Awaji and your participation in the discussions.
