II Polish-French Chemical Assises

On March 14-15, 2018, Assises franco-polonaises de Chimie took place at the PAN Science Center in Paris. The organizers of the conference were: Poznan University of Technology and Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.

The main guest of the meeting was the Nobel Prize winner in chemistry (2016): Professor Jean-Pierre Sauvage, co-founder of supramolecular chemistry, whose main concepts contain many directions of modern research.

The member of the Organizing Committee was Professor Teofil Jesionowski, Vice Rector for Life-long Learning and International Education.

Assises franco-polonaises de Chimie aim at popularizing the achievements of Polish and French research teams. Supramolecular chemistry has been successfully applied in the creation of new materials that form the basis of nanochemistry; new catalysts and molecular switches extremely important in the collection and processing of information. The interaction of small ligands with biomolecules is of great importance in the design of drugs that are effective in anti-cancer and gene therapies.
