Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a pleasure to invite you to attend the 21st International Conference on Phosphorus Chemistry (ICPC 2016) to be held in Kazan (5-10 June 2016)!

It is a great honor for us to host the ICPC Conference for the first time in Russia.

All fields of Phosphorus Chemistry will be considered, from fundamental to applied areas, including multidisciplinary approaches and related areas of other sciences.

An exciting program of oral and poster presentations will be featured, including lecture from the Laureate-2015 of the International Arbuzovs Prize. School-Conference for PhD students and Post-Docs “Rational Design of Phosphorus Substances with Desired Properties” will be held in the frame of the Conference.

It will be a great occasion to share your results and experience with leading scientists in the friendly atmosphere of the Republic of Tatarstan.

Historians call Kazan (the Capital of the Republic of Tatarstan) “a cradle of Russian organic chemistry” because many Russian outstanding scientists have worked here: K.K. Klaus, N.N. Zinin, A.M. Butlerov, V.V. Markovnikov, A.M. Zaitcev, E.E. Vagner, S.N. Reformatsky, A.E. Arbuzov and B.A. Arbuzov.

Within several last years Kazan was a place for a number of world-wide sports and scientific events (XXVII Summer Universiade, 2015 FINA World Championship, XII European Congress on Catalysis, etc).

We are very pleased to welcome you to attend and we are sure you will enjoy the pleasant Conference, from both scientific and social points of view.

Best wishes,
Oleg Sinyashin,
Chairman XXI ICPC
Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences
