International Conference on Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines (ICPP)

International Conference on Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines (ICPP), Munich Germany

July 1-6, 2018

Authors submitting abstracts for the first time will need to register their email on the submission site below.

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 tenth 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.

The list of scheduled symposia is presented below. Additional symposia may be added at a later date as will the names of the organizers once all sessions are confirmed.
