Alkene functionalization has been appreciated by chemists for a long time for the efficient construction of complex molecules. This symposium will highlight current advances with a focus on stereoselective reactions leading to the construction of novel stereocenters. Stoichiometric and catalytic protocols will be discussed while substrate- as well as reagent-controlled mechanisms can operate.

The symposium will cover the whole range of synthetic methodology from mechanistic considerations on alkene recognition, efficient formation of synthetic building blocks and application of the methodology towards target synthesis of natural products and pharmaceuticals. The major players will provide cutting edge overviews of their respective scientific fields.

The symposium will take place in the Hotel Jagdschloss Niederwald, a hunting lodge which was built in 1764, on top of the Rheingau heights of Rüdesheim near Frankfurt, Germany. The number of participants is limited to 60 including 20 invited speakers and the program will be designed specifically to allow sufficient time for discussions and a stimulating exchange of thoughts and ideas. This symposium also provides young scientists the opportunity to present their latest research results with a poster.
