MedChem India 2007
12 - 13 April 2007, Hyderabad, India
Welcome to the inaugural MedChem India conference and exhibition, inspired by the successful MedChem Europe event, which is now in its third year.
Hyderabad was chosen for the first conference as it is one of the main centers for biotechnology. Hyderabad is also famous for its various research institutes, which include the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, University of Hyderabad, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology.
Keynote Speakers
Mark Bradley
Professor of High Throughput Chemical Biology
University of Edinburgh
C. Oliver Kappe
Associate Professor of Chemistry
Karl-Franzens-University Graz
Pre-conference course
Microwave-Assisted Organic Synthesis
This course will be held between 8am and 4pm on 11 April. The course tutor is Dr. C. Oliver Kappe.
Who should attend?
Chemists from industry, academia or government who are involved in basic research in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, or related synthetic topics. These could include medicinal, organic, and high-throughput chemists in addition to scientists involved in process research. A basic knowledge of chemistry is required. The course is designed to make participants familiar with this emerging field, and improve the synthetic productivity of any practicing B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. chemist. This course will be valuable to both industrial and academic researchers currently involved with, or intending to become active in the area of microwave synthesis.

What will I gain by attending?
Obtain a state of the art introduction and training in this dynamic field
Understand the theory and concepts behind microwave synthesis
Become familiar with all major types of commercially available microwave reactors from different vendors
Learn to apply microwave chemistry to your synthetic chemistry problems
Hear about a diverse set of chemistries and applications during the course
Find out about future trends in microwave chemistry in particular in process and scale-up
Discover where to look for more advanced information, using the extensive references provided

With time allowed for open questions and discussion, this one day will enable the audience to get to grips with most of the issues involved in microwave synthesis. All participants will receive a comprehensive set of notes in CD-ROM format consisting of the material presented in the morning and afternoon sessions in addition a 2002-2006 literature survey with close to ca 700 references on controlled microwave synthesis.
