Abstract:

In order to reflect recent advances in life sciences, our goal was to have in this meeting a strong representation of the bioorganic and biomedical aspects of phosphorus chemistry, in addition to all the traditional aspects which were represented in the previous ICPCs. We considered that exposing the phosphorus chemists community to these new frontiers and opportunities for development, will widen horizons and stimulate the conception of new ideas. To achieve this, there was a need to attract scientists who normally do not participate in such a Conference. Thus, we contacted several pharmaceutical companies, medicinal chemists, biochemists and biologists. We succeeded at least partially in this goal, as it is apparent from the various special minisymposia Biologically active bisphosphonates 7 lectures Phosphorus related abzymes 8 lectures Nucleotides 8 lectures Phospholipids 7 lectures Biological applications of P-31 NMR spectroscopy 4 lectures Phosphorus containing NMDA antagonists 6 lectures Inositol phosphates 7 lectures Phosphorus containing agrochemicals 6 lectures. In addition to these, there was a general bioorganic-medicinal session 9 lectures as well as sessions devoted to computational phosphorus chemistry 4 lectures, inorganic phosphorus chemistry 9 lectures, coordination chemistry 26 lectures and to flame retardants 4 lectures. Still, as in previous ICPCs the major portion of the Conference consisted of contributed presentations in various aspects synthetic, structural and mechanistic of organophosphorus chemistry 70 lectures.
