The BMOS in Salvador was a success

The seventeenth edition of Brazilian Meeting on Organic Synthesis (BMOS) took place between October 21 and 24. Held at the Gran Hotel Stella Maris in Salvador, Bahia, the event brought together the Brazilian synthetic organic community to learn about avant-garde works in the area, discuss their research and seek cooperation with foreign groups.

Counting with the opening lecture given by prof. Erick Carreira (ETH-Zurich, Switzerland), BMOS brought together more 16 national and international lecturers, who showed the various modern areas of synthetic organic chemistry. Christofer Wanderval (UC-Irvine), Rodrigo Andrade (Temple University), Paolo Melchiorre (Universidad de Catalonia), Tyler McQuade (Virginia University), Jean-Pierre Vors (Bayer), Gonçalo Bernardes (University of Cambridge) and Till Opatz (University of Mainz) showed research in total synthesis, photochemistry, biochemistry, new methodologies and rational use of biomass. Also, Brazilians Ronaldo A. Pilli (UNICAMP), Alcindo A. Santos (USP), Márcio M. Contrucci (UFRJ), Fernanda A. Rosa (UEM), Luiz Cláudio A. Barbosa (UFMG), Antônio C. B. Burtoloso (USP-São Carlos), Arlene G. Correa (UFSCar) and Cíntia D. F. Milagre (UNESP) represented a portion of what Brazilian chemistry has the best.

One of the highlights of the event was cooperation with Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the UK International Year of Science, which allowed the third edition of Young Investigator Distinction (YID), whose winners were Andrew L. Lawrence (University of Edinburgh, UK), Diogo S. Lüdtke ( UFRGS, Brazil), Giovanni W. Amarante (UFJF, Brazil) and Stephen P. Thomas (University of Edinburgh, UK). This special session culminated with conference of Prof. Jonathan Clayden (University of Bristol), author of famous area book and with excellent experimental work in the conformational analysis.

Finally, the event held for the first time the award "BMOS Award", which was awarded in recognition of those who collaborated with the development of Organic Synthesis in the country and with the creation and consolidation of BMOS. Received the prizes in memorium the professors Nicola Petragnani and Helena Maria Ferraz (USP), José Tércio Barbosa Ferreira (UFSCar), Octávio Augusto Ceva Antunes and Ângelo da Cunha Pinto (UFRJ), in addition to Timothy Brocksom (UFSCar), Peter Bakusis (UnB), Albert James Kascheres (UNICAMP) e João Valdir Comasseto (USP).

Now as a SBQ event, BMOS was attended by around 300 participants, gathered in a pleasant environment and allowing intense integration among all, one of the great objectives of BMOS. It was also decided that the 18th BMOS will take place in Tiradentes, MG, in the year 2020, and they are all invited to another edition of this important event.
