Website of Post-symposium of ABC-7 is open.


The ABC is a successful series of symposia. The 7th ABC will provide a forum for scientists and engineers from both academia and industry to discuss most recent developments and technological opportunities in this vibrant area of research as well as the past ABC symposia, promoting a global and interdisciplinary approach towards both fundamental science and industrial applications of acid-base catalysis. We hope many people engaging in the acid-base catalysis field participate in ABC-7.


The scope of ABC-7 is to cover the most advanced research topics in acid-base catalysis. The major topics of the symposium will be

・Fundamental Science on Acid-Base Catalysis

・Novel Applications of Acid-Base Catalysis

・Materials for Acid-Base Catalysis

・Engineering of Acid-Base Catalysis

・Biomass Conversion with Acid-Base Catalysis

・Acid-Base Catalysis for Green Chemistry
