The organic chemistry division represents chemists working in the sub-discipline of organic chemistry. Our members are at all stages of their careers, from undergraduate to senior scientists, and have broad interests with overlap into other divisions of chemistry such as Physical, Inorganic, Materials, Polymer, Supramolecular, Medicinal and Chemical Biology. Central themes in our division are captured below, although this is continually evolving and changing as the modern face of organic chemistry does.

Our Purpose

Our division promotes organic chemistry through regular meetings, national conferences, and awards to recognise outstanding contributions to the discipline of organic chemistry.

The Division covers all aspects of inorganic chemistry, including

  • Organic synthesis
  • Natural products isolation and synthesis
  • Chemical biology
  • Green and sustainable chemistry
  • Physical organic chemistry
  • Homogeneous catalysis
