International Inorganic Chemistry Conference held jointly by the University of Nairobi and  International Science Programme of Uppsala University, Sweden from 22nd-24th 2018 at Best Western Plus Meridian Hotel, Nairobi

Drug design in Pharmaceuticals and mitigating environmental pollution are key areas being discussed during this year’s conference which has brought Sweden’s Uppsala University and University of Nairobi (UoN) together.

Research collaborations between regional and international Universities are continously enhanced at the University of Nairobi (UoN). 2018's International Inorganic Chemistry Conference (IICC) has jointly brought the two universities to promote Inorganic Chemistry through collaboration, research, training and information sharing.

The two-day conference running from 22nd -24th May 2018 at Best Western Plus Meridian Hotel, Nairobi, was officially opened by Ag. Deputy-Vice Chancellor Research, Production and Extension, Prof. Madara Ogot.

The conference has brought together scientists in Academia, Researchers, Industry, Entrepreneurs and Policy makers to discuss the wider application of Inorganic Chemistry in socio-economic development and environmental management.

Keynote speakers and plenary presenters included, our very own, Prof. Lydia Njenga, Director Graduate School, UoN, Prof. Martin Onani, University of Western Cape, South Africa and Prof Ola Wendt, Lund University, Sweden.

Thematic areas discussed during the conference entailed:

1) Inorganic Chemistry Synthesis and its industrial applications

2) Drug design and application in pharmaceutical industry

3) Environmental pollution and mitigation

4) Catalysis

5) Nano chemistry & Technological Development

6) Mining and mineral processing

7) Theoretical and Computational Chemistry
