Progress in Organofluorine Chemistry

The registration is closed. 

The Institute of Organic and Analytical Chemistry (ICOA UMR CNRS 7311, University of Orleans) together with LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies organize an international scientific meeting which will be held in October, 15-17 2018 in Orleans, France.
This symposium will bring together an international panel of world renowned keynote speakers who will present cutting edge lectures covering recent progress and perspectives in organofluorine chemistry. Fluorine-containing compounds are of high interest in organic chemistry as they have found in a wide range of applications in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, medical imaging, polymers and material science. The conference aims to highlight new synthetic strategies for fluorine incorporation into organic molecules, and to demonstrate the unique potential of fluorine in modulating their structural, physical and biological properties.
Plenary and invited lectures will be complemented by the presentation of oral communications given by young scientists, as well as posters.
Altogether we hope that this conference will favor not only new discoveries but also the exchange of ideas for further collaborations and development. We thus wish all participants a very stimulating, rewarding and memorable meeting.

Progress in Organofluorine Chemistry

Confirmed Speakers


Abstracts for oral presentation and poster should be submitted before Monday 17th of September 2018. Please upload your abstract during the registration or send it before the deadline to maurine.villiers@lestudium-ias.fr.

The number of oral presentations is limited, convenors will process a selection and confirm your presentation not later than Friday 22nd of September 2018.
Please note that we do not print the posters, but racks & pins will be provided for up to A0 sizes, portrait format. 

The best communications in the area of “Cancer or Regenerative Pharmacology”  will be selected by conference’s scientific committee.
The authors of those abstracts will receive in October, invitations to publish their work (experimental or review) in the special volume of The European Journal of Pharmacology (2016 IF~3), edited by Professor Marek J. Łos.


Hôtel Dupanloup : 1, rue Dupanloup - 45000 ORLEANS - FR

The conference venue is unique. Located right next to the Orléans’ cathedral, the episcopal palace of Orléans, built between 1635 and 1641, locally known as the Hôtel Dupanloup, is a classical French building which served until 1905 of residence to the bishops of Orléans.  Since 2014, the renewed palace hosts the International University Center for Research and Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies.

Participants will be welcomed in this exceptional surrounding, blending Middle Age and Renaissance cultures with modern design and will have the opportunity to discover French cuisine and wines.
