The Sixteenth International Symposium on Relations between Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysis (ISHHC-16) will be held in Conference Hall, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan from August 4 (Sun) to 9 (Fri), 2013, according to the decision at ISHHC XV in Berlin. The ISHHC has been held in Brussels, Belgium (1974), Lyon, France (1977), Groningen, The Netherlands (1981), Asilomar, USA (1983), Novosibirsk, Russia (1986), Pisa, Italy (1989), Tokyo, Japan (1992), Balatonfured, Hungary (1995), Southampton, UK (1999), Lyon, France (2001), Evanston, USA (2003), Florence, Italy (2005), Berkeley, USA (2007), Stockholm, Sweden (2009), and Berlin, Germany (2011) every two or three years.
Aims of ISHHC are to link three fields of catalysis: heterogeneous, homogeneous and enzyme, and to understand the catalysis on the molecular level. Recent advances in instrumentation, synthesis and reaction studies will permit the molecular?nanoscopic scale characterization of the catalyst systems for similar reactions and the development of molecular-level integration and correlations of these three different fields of catalysis. To further this goal we aim to uncover new aspects and common concepts that emerge from the molecular?nanoscopic scale studies of active structures and dynamics of the three types of catalysts, achieving catalyst design and synthesis and addressing key issues of catalytic activity and selectivity.
We heartily invite all of you who are interested in the link of the three fields in catalysis and who intend to understand the catalysis on the molecular level, to the ISHHC-16 in 2013, Japan.
