The Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ), with the support of the Portuguese Electrochemical Society (SPE), has the great pleasure of organizing the 8thEuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8), to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from August 30 to September 3, 2020.

The 8 EuCheMS Chemistry Congress is being built under the unifying theme of Chemistry the Central Science, focusing on the central role of chemistry at the interfaces with biology, material and environmental sciences, both for the progress of humankind and for the solution of fundamental problems of modern societies. An exciting scientific program led by world class experts will develop around seven main scientific topics:

  • Advances in Synthetic Organic Methodologies
  • Metal Containing Compounds and Solids: Properties and Applications
  • Chemistry meets Biology
  • Colloids and Materials
  • Biomaterials and Medicinal Chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Spectroscopic and Analytical Tools / Advanced Physical Chemistry
accompanied by three sessions devoted to topics of particular relevance to join scientists from different areas:
  • Chemistry and Society
  • Functional Materials
  • Food Chemistry
and the final one organized by EYCN, the EuChemS European Young Chemists´ Network of EuChemS The program will be completed by three general and particularly important themes, which will run every day and provide a general view of the field, going beyond the view from each classical area:
  • Molecules in Motion
  • Energy, Environment and Sustainability
  • Imaging
This conference will be the 8th in a series that started in Hungary, and was held in several cities before reaching Lisbon. All of them reached very high scientific levels, giving to all the participants the opportunity of listening to the most celebrated world speakers presenting state of the art advances in chemical sciences and to discuss openly with the chemistry community.
