Welcome to the website for the 23rd IUPAC Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry

ICPOC is a biannual conference, with the previous two being held in Durham, UK (ICPOC21, 2012) and Ottawa, Canada (ICPOC22, 2014).  Physical organic chemistry of this conference series is viewed as 'a broad church' encompassing not just the traditional physical organic areas of mechanism, reactivity and structure but extending into biology, materials science and systems chemistry.  Accordingly, the streams of this conference will be: 

  • Physical Foundations of Organic Reactivity

  • Mechanism and Bioorganic Chemistry

  • Supramolecular and Systems Chemistry


Organised with support from Systems Chemistry Australia
