The 6th Total Synthesis of Natural Products—Academic Conference for Youth (Chinese Chemical Society) was held at Nankai University from August 19th to 20th. The purposes of this conference are developing excellent academic traditions of scientists of the older generations and highlighting the important role of the synthesis of natural products in organic chemistry as well as building a favorable academic platform for communication for young scholars. The conference commissioned by Chinese Chemical Society was organized by State Key Laboratory of Elemento-organic Chemistry (Nankai University) and supported by National Natural Science Foundation and 2011 Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemical Science and Engineering(Tianjin). 78 experts and scholars from 43 universities and institutes of inland and Hong Kong China attended the conference.
Prof. Jun Chen, dean of College of Chemistry, addressed an
opening speech. Academician Guoqiang Lin from Shanghai Institute of Organic
Chemistry (Chinese Academy of Science), Prof. Zhujun Yao from Nanjing
University, Prof. Hongbin Zhai from Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School
and Prof. Weidong Li from Chongqing University as special invited guests were
present and gave instructions. Prof. Zhen Yang from Peking University, Prof.
Yingjin Yuan from Tianjin University, researcher Biao Yu from Shanghai Institute
of Organic Chemistry (Chinese Academy of Science) and Prof. Hongbin Zhang from
Yunnan University delivered the reports of “Asymmetric Total Synthesis of
(+)-19-dehydroxyl arisandilactone A”, “Regeneration of Eucaryotic Microbes
Yeasts and Its Application in Chemical Methods”, “The First Total Synthesis of
Immunosuppressant to Chinese Medicine—Periplocin”, “The Research on the
Synthesis of Vindoline” respectively. Moreover, there were 20 young scholars in
the conference who delivered excellent invited reports and 16 scholars who
presented their splendid posters. A deep and comprehensive academic
communication for the synthesis and functions of natural products had been
discussed in the two-day conference.
Moreover, 20 invited young scholars made fantastic lectures and 15 scholars made poster presentation, which revealed youth elegant demeanour and ever-growing academic level of Chinese young chemists. At this conference, comprehensive academic views was exchanged on Natural product synthesis, Natural product biological functions, synthetic biology etc. Attendees discussed the development situation at home and aboard and front-burner issues of common concern in related fields.
Prof. Chunming Cui, director of State Key Laboratory of
Elemento-organic Chemistry, delivered his closing address to the conference and
expected the next seminar at Southern University of Science and
