Thank you for your participation! You may still access the materials of each submission, including the peer-reviewed paper, poster, or presentation.

The certificate of participation can be accessed HERE.

The evaluation of the ECSOC-27 awards is still pending and an announcement will be made shortly.

Welcome from the Chair

Dear colleague,

Welcome to the 27th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC-27).

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-27 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.

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 1 October 2023 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 a video of their work before 15 October 2023 to ensure there is time for peer review and a final check.

The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on for discussion during 15–30 November 2023 and will be published in the Chemistry Proceedings (ISSN: 2673-4583). journal. Once the conference is over, a CD-ROM (ISBN 978-3-0365-6313-8) will be published with the contents of the conference, and it will be available upon request ( for EUR 75 each.

Extended and expanded versions of conference proceedings papers can be submitted to a Special Issue in the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.6 (2022); 5-Year Impact Factor: 4.9 (2022)) after the conference, with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges.

We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success. We look forward to receiving your research papers and to welcoming you at this 27th edition of the e-conference.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Dr. Julio A. Seijas Vázquez
Chair of the 27th Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC-27)

Keynote Speakers

Institute of Organic Chemistry, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria

Mario Waser was born in Steyr, Austria in 1977 and studied chemistry at JKU Linz, Austria where he obtained his Ph.D. in 2005 in the group of Prof. Heinz Falk. After a postdoctoral stay with Prof. Alois Fürstner (Max-Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung, Mülheim, Germany), he spent two years as an R&D chemist working for DSM. In 2009 he started his independent career at JKU Linz and in 2014 he obtained his habilitation (venia docendi) and became Associate Professor. In 2020 he was promoted to Full Professor for Organic Stereochemistry and in 2021 he was appointed as the Head of the Institute of Organic Chemistry at JKU. His main research interests are on the design and application of asymmetric organocatalysts (i.e. quat. ammonium salt-based ion pairing catalysts) and on the development of asymmetric organocatalytic synthesis methods.

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX, USA

Haibo Ge received his Ph.D. degree in Medicinal Chemistry from The University of Kansas in 2006 and then moved to The Scripps Research Institute for his postdoctoral study. He began his independent academic career at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Indiana University—Purdue University Indianapolis in 2009 and relocated to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas Tech University in 2020. Research in his group is mainly focused on the development of novel methods for carbon–carbon and carbon–heteroatom bond formation reactions via transition-metal-catalyzed C–H functionalization.

LAQV/REQUIMTE, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal

Dr. Ana M. G. Silva received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from UAveiro in 2002 and completed her graduation in Chemistry, Food Chemistry in 1997 at the same University. In 2003, she was awarded an FCT post-doctoral fellowship (SFRH/BPD/8374/2002) at UAveiro, where she acquired solid expertise in organic chemistry, particularly in porphyrin chemistry. During the Ph.D. and Post-doc periods, she carried out 3 internships with the research groups of Prof A. Dondoni (UFerrara, Italy) and Prof O. Kappe (UGraz, Austria), where she learned advanced strategies to synthesize carbohydrate derivatives and developed various microwave protocols related to the porphyrins derivatization. Since 2007, she holds a researcher position (with different contractual levels) at REQUIMTE, UPorto. While maintaining an interest in porphyrin chemistry, she started a new line of research dedicated to the synthesis, characterization, and development of strong bright xanthene fluorophores using sustainable chemistry approaches, for applications in medicine and environmental remediation. She authored/co-authored more than 70 papers in international peer-review journals (h-index of 25 with 1582 total citations), 3 section(s) of books, 1 patent(s) registered, and gave more than 40 oral presentations to international/national meetings. In 2016 she was congratulated as a coordinator of the project M-ERA-NET/0005/2014. AMGS is a member of Sociedade Portuguesa de Química (SPQ) and the Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines (SPP).

Pr. Philippe Compain received his Engineer degree in chemistry at CPE Lyon. In 1998, he was awarded the Dina Surdin Prize from the French Chemical Society for his Ph. D research on the synthesis of spiro alkaloids by way of 1,2-chirality transfer (group of Prof. J. Goré, University of Lyon I). After a postdoctoral stay at Montreal with Prof. S. Hanessian on hetero Diels-Alder reactions, he was appointed Chargé de Recherche (researcher) at CNRS in the group of Prof. O. R. Martin in Orléans. In 2008, he accepted a full professorship at the University of Strasbourg. He is now a Professor of Organic Chemistry in this University and at the European Engineering School of Chemistry, Polymers and Material Science (ECPM). His research interests span from the development of new synthetic methodologies to the synthesis of carbohydrate mimics of biological interest. He is co-editor of a book untitled Iminosugars: from synthesis to therapeutic applications (Wiley-VCH). In 2010, Pr. Compain has been made Junior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) and elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2016. He is currently President of the Groupe Français des Glycosciences (GFG, the French network in Glycoscience).
