List of Symposia for ICPP-9

Topics to be covered in microsymposia include the physics, chemistry, biology, material science, engineering, nanotechnology, medical and biomedical or industrial applications of porphyrins, phthalocyanines and related macrocycles.

As at past ICPPs, this ninth conference on porphyrins and phthalocyanines aims at gathering together numerous topics related to this exciting family of molecules. All aspects of porphyrins, phthalocyanines and related macrocycles will be discussed in the form of Plenary Lectures, Award Lectures, short oral presentations and posters over the full five-day period of the meeting.

Topics to be covered in microsymposia include the physics, chemistry, biology, material science, engineering, nanotechnology, medical and biomedical or industrial applications of porphyrins, phthalocyanines and related macrocycles.
