6–9 October 2010, Toyama, Japan
Vanadium chemistry and biochemistry have become more attractive in part because of the synthetic utility of several vanadium complexes and in part because of new findings that vanadium compounds have insulin-mimic and anti-tumor properties. In addition, the discovery of several vanadium enzymes and proteins from marine organisms are the subject of intensive research. The Seventh International Symposium on the Chemistry and Biological Chemistry of Vanadium (V7 Symposium), 6–9 October 2010, Toyama, Japan, will encourage international and interdisciplinary exchange of the most up-to-date information among the chemistry and biochemistry fields, thereby promoting the advancement of vanadium chemistry.
The scientific topics for the V7 Symposium are as follows:
- Vanadium Inorganic Chemistry—Coordination, Speciation, and Structure
- Vanadium Bioinorganic and Biological Chemistry
- Vanadium Transport, Toxicology, and Enzymology
- Therapeutic Applications of Vanadium Compounds
- Vanadium-Induced or -Catalyzed Reactions
- New Materials Containing Vanadium and their Processes
The deadline for abstract submissions for poster presentations is 31 July 2010. Several posters will be selected as oral presentations on the basis of the quality and creativity of the research presented in the provided abstract.
