Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the XI International Conference “Mechanisms of Catalytic Reactions” (MCR-XI) which is to be held in Sochi (Russia) on 7-11 October, 2019. The Conference is organized under the auspices of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies and the National Catalytic Society of Russia.

The XI Conference “Mechanisms of Catalytic Reactions” follows an established tradition, with previous meetings held in Moscow (1974, 1979, 1986, 1990, 2002), Saint-Petersburg (2006, 2012), Novosibirsk (1982, 2009), and Svetlogorsk (2016).

Since 2009, conferences of this series have a status of regular international events, held every three years and attract about 250 scientists from up to 30 countries.

Traditionally, the International Conference on the Mechanisms of Catalytic Reactions focuses on advances in understanding the mechanisms of chemical reactions occurring in the presence of catalysts, ranging from homogeneous molecular catalysts (inorganic, organic, metal complex) to heterogeneous catalysts.

We look forward to welcoming you in Sochi!
