Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee, I am pleased to be able to invite you to the  “29th International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Products and the 9th International Conference on Biodiversity” (ISCNP-29 & ICOB-9) that is planned to be held in İzmir-Turkey during September 24-27, 2016.

The series of this Symposium recognised  as biennial conference  and these biennial symposia were first held jointly in 2004 in New Delhi, India. The symposia will focus on the advancement of international collaboration and communication in the interdisciplinary areas involving natural product chemistry and biodiversity-related and pharmaceutical sciences.

The intention of this conference is to provide an intimate and relaxed environment, to stimulate fresh thinking and creative ideas, in a scientific field impacting so importantly on life and medical sciences. The symposium will also highlight the key role of chemistry in the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents for human diseases. Each event brings together over 300 leading individuals to discuss the most relevant issues at that moment. The symposium is run in conjunction with IUPAC journals called Pure and Applied Chemistry.

The main objective of the conference is to emphasize the importance of natural product chemistry and biodiversity for sustainable development, and to promote novel research and collaborations, by bringing together experts and interested parties from all over the world and from diverse bodies from the academia to the industry and to governments.  The conference will be a multidisciplinary event considering all the major areas of natural product chemistry, including  synthesis processes, catalysis, environmentally benign solvents, education, policies, and many other interesting topics. Interfaces with other sciences and other research areas will be actively encouraged.

We hope that this conference will meet your expectations, stimulate exciting discussions, and lead to fruitful new collaborations.

We look forward to welcoming you to İzmir at the conference on September 24-27, 2016.

Prof. Dr. Bilge ŞENER

Symposium Topics
The conference program will include Plenary, Invited Lectures and Poster Presentations.
As the world’s population approaches 9 billion, the strain on the planet’s resources is steadily increasing.  This demand can only be met by improving production methods to reduce the use of chemicals and the amount of chemical waste. It is important to conserve and use biodiversity sustainably.

The 29th International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Products and the 9th International Conference on  Biodiversity- (ISCNP-29 & ICOB-9)
will focus on the following key topics:

  • Chemical Basis of Biodiversity
  • Chemistry of Natural Products
  • Biosynthesis and Chemical Biology
  • Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge
  • Novel Bioactive Natural Compounds
  • Molecular Mode of Action on Natural Products and Drugs
  • Drug Discovery and Developments
  • Synthesis of Natural Products and Related Synthetic Methodology
  • Bio-Inorganic / Bio-Organic Chemistry
  • Medicinal Plants
  • Phytotherapeutics
  • Genetic Engineering on Natural Products
  • Biomolecular Aspects of Biodiversity
