Organizing Committee

Call for Papers

ECSOC-1 will cover conventional aspects (Section A) and new technologies (Section B) of synthesis of organic compounds including organometallics and inorganic complexes of novel organic ligands, and cover mainly experimental works. The important topic of biosynthesis (Section C) and natural product chemistry (Section D) will be organized as separate symposiums. Section E is structural characterization and applications of organic, organometalic compounds and inorganic coordinated compounds of organic ligands. Section F is the related information management and compound archives management and related theoretical works.

Each subject area has a section convener who will screen titles, papers (resaerch notes, short communications and abstracts of full articles and review papers) sent by authors for suitability. Authors can opt to submit a non-permanent presentation like a normal conference poster. The final version of research communications, research notes, full papers and review articles of all the posters will be peer-refereed and if accepted, will be published in the ECSOC Proceedings in two editions (online and CD-ROM).

Conference Presentations

The conference presentations should be preferably prepared in HTML format. HTML files should be supplied directly by the participants (For technical details, visit: Samples posters are available). Otherwise, organizers of ECSOC-1 will transfer word processor files (preferably saved as Microsoft Word file or most preferably in RTF format) submitted by the participants to HTML files.

All the papers will be postered on this Web site during September 1-30, 1997. During the conference, comments, questions and answers will be posted in HTML format at a web-site for a particular section. Suitable comments and questions of the participants and the answers may be incorporated by the authors into the final, corrected and modified version of the papers for publication and cited as notes or personal communications.

Procedure, Scienfic Programs and Deadlines

ECSOC-1 Registration and Mailing List

There is no registration fee for the conference. To register, and to subscribe to the ECSOC-1 mailing list, send by e-mail a one-line message:

Subscribe ecsoc first name last name

Archives of the message sent to the participants can be found at

In addition, ECSOC-1 participants may subscribe to the ECSOC Proceedings at a special rate.

Give your complete name, surface mail and e-mail addresses, fax and phone numbers, in your first contact as well as in all your further correspondence. Announcements will be sent regularly to the ECSOC-1 mailing list

Send Papers for Consideration

Papers (research notes or short communications and abstracts of full papers, or reviews) for presentation should be sent by e-mail or by fax or surface mail one copy directly to the appropriate section convener listed below before July 15, 1997.
(The deadline has been extended to July 30, 1997).

Accepted Papers for Presentation

This time we will present all papers as posters. For those chemists who are familiar with the internet, prepare your papers as homepages (one page for one paper) in your personal website and tell the organizer by e-mail ( the URL addresses. The organizer will download them and put them at the conference homepage for presentation, before August 15, 1997. Participants who are unable to prepare their accepted papers in HTML format may send word processor files (Please insert all figures into the text and prepare one paper as ONE file only) on diskette together with one hard copy by surface mail, also before August 15, 1997, to: Dr. Shu-Kun Lin, ECSOC-1, MDPI, Saengergasse 25, CH-4054 Basel (New Address: Matthaeusstrasse 11 , CH-4057 Basel), Switzerland. The organizers will convert them into HTML files.

Proceedings Publication

All the papers (research notes or communications, full papers, or reviews) presented at the ECSOC-1 in HTML format will be published in the ECSOC-1 Proceedings (ISBN 3-906980-00-6) in two editions (online and print).

Paper refereeing will be conducted during the conference and afterwards. Referees will be appointed by the section conveners. Referee reports will be sent to the authors via e-mail or fax.

Additions and corrections should be sent via e-mail before November 1, 1997 to Dr. Shu-Kun Lin, Molecules/MDPI, Saengergasse 25, CH-4054 Basel (New Address: Matthaeusstrasse 11 , CH-4057 Basel), Switzerland; Phone +41 79 322 3379; Fax +41 61 302 8918; E-mail:, or one of the section conveners.

Conference Sections and Section Conveners

Questions related to a particular section and the papers should be forwarded via e-mail to section conveners. All other e-mails (such as registration, maillist, and HTML and PDF queries) should be sent to the conference convener at

A. General Organic Synthesis: Target-oriented synthesis, metal-mediated synthesis, stereoselective synthesis, and new synthetic methods.

B. Combinatorial Synthesis and Automation: New technologies for synthesis of oligomers and small molecules libraries.

C. Biosynthesis (Biocatalyst-assisted Organic Synthesis): All aspects of synthetic biotransformations, including organic synthesis using whole-cells, native enzymes, redesigned enzyme molecules, in aqueous and nonaqueous solvents.

D. Natural Product Chemistry: Natural product isolation, total synthesis of natural product, Synthesis of natural product derivatives.

E. Structural Characterization and Biological and Chemical Activity Tests: Structure elucidation by X-ray, MS, IR, NMR etc. Applications of compounds.
