Welcome to the 17th Ferrocene Colloquium

The 17th Ferrocene Colloquium will be held from February 24 to 26, 2019, at the University of Rostock. Initial nucleus of the Ferrcocene Colloquium was a group of researchers who shared an original vital interest in the growing field of Ferrocene-based chemistry and therefore founded the Ferrocene Colloquium as a scientific exchange platform in 2003. Over the years, it has developed to a well-established European forum for organometallic chemistry in general, highlighting the chemistry of metallocenes and any kind of other π-complexes in particular. Potential topics range from synthesis, chemical properties and reactivity of new compounds, their use in catalysis, electrochemistry, photochemistry, and materials science to medical aspects. The Colloquium will be jointly organized by the Institute of Chemistry and the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis.

Six leading international experts will present keynote lectures demonstrating the diversity of the field. In addition, the meeting will provide an excellent platform for PhD students as well as principal investigators to present their research either in form of a poster or a talk. The traditionally rather workshop-like character of the Ferrocene Colloquium is perfect to initiate and foster discussions and exchange of scientific experience between young reserachers and experts.

In 2019, our University celebrates its 600th anniversary. We consider this a good occasion to discuss organometallic chemistry for the future. We are looking forward to welcome you in Rostock!

Yours sincerely,

Wolfram W. Seidel
