Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry.

Electronic conferences on synthetic organic chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences maintained through the internet since 1997, an original initiative by MDPI, and later consolidated with the contribution of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Nowadays it constitutes the first and oldest electronic conference in the world. It maintains its character of free participation, with contributions considered as preliminary reports on edge achievements, and registration as a distinctive standard of the world wide web open access character.

UCL School of Pharmacy, University College London, London, UK

Mire Zloh was a Visiting Professor at the UCL School of Pharmacy until January 2021, when he took the position of a Teaching Fellow at the same institution. He holds the Emeritus Professor of Medicinal Chemistry with the University of Hertfordshire, where he was the Head of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Research Professor from January 2013 until September 2017. He also acts as Innovation Advisor to the Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University Business Academy in Novi Sad Serbia. His research interest is in the areas of computer-aided molecules, antimicrobial peptides, formulation design, and structural chemistry. Most notably, Prof. Zloh proposed that modulators of multidrug resistance might form complexes with substrates of efflux pumps to act as “escort” molecules and deliver drugs to the site of action, which may provide an additional route in the design of adjuvant therapies to treat infections by resistant bacteria. In efforts to develop polymer-based drug delivery systems, a method was developed to translate monomeric linear sequences into a fully atomistic model of a hyperbranched molecule. His research resulted in over 130 peer-reviewed articles (h- index 32).

Call for Participations

Dear Colleague,

The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. This year, the conference will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:

  1. General Organic Synthesis;
  2. Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry;
  3. Microwave Assisted Synthesis;
  4. Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry;
  5. Computational Chemistry.

ECSOC-26 offers you the opportunity to participate in an international, scholarly conference without having the concern or expenditure of travel. The conference will be completely free of charge—both to “attend”, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. Selected papers will have the opportunity to be submitted to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.927 (2021) ; 5-Year Impact Factor: 5.110 (2021) ).

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 30 September 2022 online at Once the abstract has been accepted, the author is requested to send the full communication manuscript, and optionally, a PowerPoint presentation (PDF only) and/or video of their work before 23 October 2022 to ensure there is time for a final check.

We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success. The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry is organized and sponsored by MDPI, an open-access publisher based in Switzerland.

We look forward to receiving your research papers and to welcoming you at this 26th edition of the e-conference.
