Division of Organometallic Chemistry

EuChemS conferences on Organometallic Chemistry (EuCOMC)

The Division of Organometallic is one of the oldest Professional Networks of EuChemS, since when EuChemS still had it original name of FECS. It has held regular biannual conferences since 1976, originally called “FECHEM Conference on Organometallic Chemistry”, then switched to EuCOMC when FECS has become EuCheMS (European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences) in 2004 and then EuChemS (European Chemical Society) in 2018. The log of all FECHEM/EuCOMC conferences is given below:

Other conferences

In addition to the biannual Divisional conferences, the EuChemS Division of Organometallic chemistry gives its auspices to other series of conferences held in Europe and with organometallic chemistry as its main theme:
  • The International School or Organometallic Chemistry (ISOC), held in Camerino, Italy.

The last meeting of this series was the 12th ISOC, held in 2019.
