Chirafun 2024: Chirality, Spectroscopies and Analyses

GDR 10.jpeg


Welcome to CHIRAFUN24, the annual conference of the GDR (CNRS - Chimie) Chirafun, which will take place from 19 to 20 September 2024 on the Saclay plateau (Orsay) and is jointly organised by ICMMO (UMR 8182) and ISMO (UMR 8214) located at University of Paris-Saclay.

Chirafun is a French research network devoted to chirality and multifunctionality, with four main lines of research: Chiral molecular materials, Biomimetic systems and chiral supramolecular assemblies, Chiroptical techniques and innovative spectroscopic hyphenated analyses, Fundamental physics.

This year, CHIRAFUN24 will cover different aspects and will focus in particular on analysis techniques or tools such as those based on optical spectroscopy or NMR, including chiroptical techniques (circular dichroism, circularly polarised luminescence, Raman optical activity, etc.). Hovewer, all aspects of chirality are welcome, such as asymmetric synthesis, supramolecular chemistry and analytical methods for the separation of enantiomers.

Two guest lectures will be given by Nathalie Katsonis (Netherlands) and Christian Merten (Germany).

In addition, talks (19 and 1 keynote) will be given by junior and senior scientists. Two poster sessions will be organised during the meeting. All participants are therefore encouraged to submit an abstract for an oral communication or a poster. The programme will be drawn up on the basis of your proposals.

The conference will be held in the amphitheatre of the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d'Orsay, Bâtiment 520 "Plateau de Saclay", Université Paris-Saclay, from 14:00 on 19-09-24. Participants are welcomed from 11:30. These days will end at 17:30 on 20-09-24.

Registration (deadline 01-09-2024) is free but compulsory, with a maximum number of 70 participants. Please register as early as possible for organizational reasons, and don't forget to submit an abstract (oral and/or poster).
