Welcome to the 2nd Canada – UK Joint Symposium on Inorganic Chemistry!

Welcome to the 2nd Canada – UK Joint Symposium on Inorganic Chemistry!

We are delighted to be hosting this conference at the Quebec City and would like to extend a warm welcome to all our speakers, sponsors and conference delegates. This is the second iteration of this meeting, the first one in Canada, after a first event in St-Andrews in 2022. We hope this edition will continue to strengthen the bonds and friendship between UK and Canadian chemists. We are excited to showcase the impact that inorganic chemistry has on diverse fields such as supramolecular chemistry to materials development to main group chemistry and catalysis to bioinorganic chemistry to energy and environmental science.

We very much hope you enjoy your time here.

Please don’t hesitate to ask us for help or information during the conference.

Best wishes,

Frédéric, Rebecca, Jaclyn and Barry
