Macromolecule-Metal Complexes

by Edward Karakhanov and Anton Maksimov

The Xth IUPAC International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes (MMC-X) took place 18-23 May 2003 in a boat that departed from Moscow and travelled along the Volga River. It was held under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences; The Ministry of Industry, Science, and Technologies of the Russian Federation; and the Russian Foundation for Basic Research. It was organized by the Moscow State University's Department of Chemistry.

The first International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes (MMC) was organized in 1985 in Beijing. The MMC symposia have been held every two years in locations all over the world (Italy, Germany, China, Netherlands, Japan, USA). The main goal of the meetings is to bring together scientists and technologists (polymer chemists, coordination chemists, biochemists, catalytic chemists, and others) to intensify the dialogue among young scientists, academia, and industry; to encourage newcomers to the field; and to motivate future research.

One hundred twenty participants from 15 countries listened to 6 plenary, 18 invited, and 18 oral lectures. During the symposium 64 posters were also presented.

The scientific program of the 10th symposium was centered around a number of fundamental and applied topics such as fundamental aspects (synthesis, structure, properties), electron and photonic transfer, catalysis and separation processes, supramolecules, dendrimers, molecular recognition, metal ion conductive polymers, and environmental application of MMC. Plenary and invited lecturers covered each topic of the symposium, providing an excellent foundation for discussions and providing ideas for further developments in the field.

Manuscripts from plenary and invited lectures will be published in Macromolecular Symposia. The 11th International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes will be held in 2005 in Pisa, Italy

Edward Karakhanov <kar@petrol.chem.msu.ru>, chairman of MMC-X, is a head of the Division of Petrochemistry and Organic Catalysis, Department of Chemistry of Moscow State University.
Anton Maksimov <max@petrol.chem.msu.ru>, secretary of the symposium, is a senior researcher in the same department.
