12th Congress of the Interdivisional Group of Organometallic Chemistry

Genoa, June 5–8, 2016

Welcome to the Homepage of the XII Congress of the Interdivisional Group of Organometallic Chemistry (Co.G.I.C.O.) of the Italian Chemical Society, which will take place in Genoa in the period June 5–8, 2016. The Conference will be held at the Bristol Palace Hotel, in via XX Settembre, placed in the heart of the city.

The congress has reached its twelfth edition demonstrating the great interest of inorganic and organic chemists for the organometallic chemistry. This is also confirmed by the fact that the G.I.C.O., with its c.a. 130 participants, is the largest interdivisional group of the SCI.

Over the years, the scientific interest addressed by many researchers, having different backgrounds, to the chemistry of metals and their potential application in many fields, has promoted the development of interdisciplinary fields of research such as bioorganometallic chemistry and materials science, focused on nanotechnologies, as well as new materials and processes whose goal is to produce zero-carbon energy. The researchers working in the field of organometallic chemistry have paid particular attention to the goal of sustainable processes, as witnessed by the continuing evolution of catalytic reactions. Recent examples are the development of gold chemistry, the pairing of metallic catalysts with organic catalysts to allow reactions otherwise not possible.
Moreover, the potential applications derived from the knowledge gained from studies of organometallics are evolving, promising significant progress in that field.

The G.I.C.O. congress is a biennial event and represents a possibility for researchers working in this field to spread their results and share new ideas. These can promote the creation of new partnerships, giving a great benefit for the cultural growth of the entire chemical community.
