Event Name

ICCOSS XIX (International Conference on the Chemistry of the Organic Solid State)

Start Date 14th Jun 2009
End Date 19th Jun 2009
The 19th edition of the International Conference on the Chemistry of the Organic Solid State (ICCOSS XIX) will be held in Sestri Levante, a nice spot of the Genoa Riviera, sitting between Portofino and Cinque Terre.

ICCOSS meetings have a well established tradition and a few of the past meetings have been held at Jerusalem (1993), Matsuyama (1995), Stony Brook (1997), Cambridge (1999), Mainz (2001), Sydney (2003), Los Angeles (2005), and Merida (2007).

Conference Topics

ICCOSS deals with various aspects of the crystalline state and reactivity of organic and hybrid materials from preparation to characterization. It includes the investigation of  crystal structures and supramolecular architectures, crystal growth and design, inclusion compounds, topochemical reactions, nanostructures, heterogeneous interfaces. Nanoporous materials useful in gas storage and separation for energetic and environmental reasons will be highlighted. Special focussed sessions will be dedicated to polymorphism of pharmaceutical solids and to molecular machines and rotors in the solid state.
