NOST-RACI-Organic Chemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry Conference
@RMIT, Melbourne, Australia

6th November – 8th November, 2019

The Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry conference co-organised by The Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT)and the National Organic Symposium Trust (NOST) at RMIT Australia features some of the leading organic chemistry researchers from Australia and India.

NOST’s highly-regarded Organic Chemistry Conference has been held regularly in venues around India since 1988, providing a great forum for national & international researchers to build strong collaborations with leading organic chemists in India. It also encourages young budding researchers (Research Scholars) to interact and be updated with the current research through JNOST conference. Towards further expansion, NOST has recently organized an Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Conference by partnering with Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) at Leeds, UK in October, 2016. To further strengthen the relationships and collaborations with abroad researchers, we now look forward for this second international conference in this series to be held at Melbourne, Australia in 6th-8th November, 2019.

Total Synthesis, Synthetic methodologies, Bioorganic Chemistry, Physical Organic Chemistry Chemical Biology and Computational Organic Chemistry.

National Organic Symposium Trust

National Organic Chemistry Symposium Trust (NOST), a non-profit organization, was established in 1983 to promote organic chemistry research and teaching in India through the scientific interactions and commitment of the organic chemistry community. Initial objective of the NOST was to hold national level Organic Chemistry Conference (OCC) to provide an interactive platform for young and established organic chemists in academia as well asindustry. Having successfully organized several such national meetings, increasinglyattracting international speakers, NOST also recently ventured to expand its wings to hold international conference. In 2016, NOST-RSC conference was held at Leeds UK. Based on the encouragement and response to the NOST-OCC, particularly from the young organic chemists, it was also considered to launch a separate yearly meeting of the young researchers (mostly Ph. D students) in organic chemistry (J-NOST conference). The first J-NOST conference was held at Pune in 2004. And simultaneously, the conferences started attracting international young research scholars for participation.14 J-NOST conferences have been conducted successfully till 2018.

Royal Australian Chemical Institute

Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) is the professional body for the chemical sciences founded in 1917 and granted a Royal charter in 1932. The aim of this body is to promoting the science and practice of Chemistry. It works in the direction of improving the quality of life through leadership in the field of chemical sciences. It acts as a qualifying body in Australia for professional chemists.

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology

One of Australia's largest tertiary institutions, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University enjoys an international reputation for excellence in professional and vocational education, applied research, and engagement with the needs of industry and the community. RMIT is a public research University in the heart of Melbourne, Australia, and ranks in the top 1 per cent of global universities in the 2017-18 QS World University Rankings.Its diverse Melbourne campuses are home to more than 82,000 students including 12, 000 international students from over 100 countries.

RMIT-IICT Joint Research Centre

In 2011, RMIT-IICT Joint Research Centre was established to cultivate and attract best research talent in India, and export to RMIT University while stimulating collaborative research between India and Australia.

As a result, a joint IICT-RMIT PhD program was developed, offering a unique and innovative educational experience that spans two countries. The PhD candidates work on projects jointly conceived by Indian and RMIT supervisors and conduct their research in the Indian institutions for about two years and spend a year in RMIT. By undertaking their research at two institutions in two countries, the students derive the benefit of culturally and scientifically diverse environments which prepares them for a global career.Since its commencement the program has seen 33 total enrolments into the program, with 19 successful graduates so far with outstanding academic outputs with 100% employment.

The research focuses on catalysis, nanoscience/nanotechnology, environmental science, chemical engineering and bio-technology,training the next generation of work-ready graduates who are flexible, highly trained, innovative and capable to work beyond international borders.
