ECTOC Conference Series Electronic Conference on
Organometallic Chemistry.
30 June - 31 July 1997

An Electronic conference for discussing recent developments in Organometallic Chemistry will be held during 30 June - 31 July 1997 on the Global Internet using the World-Wide Web and electronic mail as the delivery mechanisms. Scientific organisation will be under the auspices of the Royal Society of Chemistry. ECTOC-3 will continue the innovative style introduced with ECTOC-1 and ECTOC-2 (ECHET96) conferences in offering a low cost and near-instant mechanism for discussing chemistry, with features such as full colour structure diagrams, editable structures and reaction schemes, rotatable 3D molecular images, index searches of conference proceedings, contributed discussions by participants, up to date access statistics for articles, photographs submitted by participants and other novel features.

The conference will take the form of keynote articles, contributed articles and posters and discussions on all aspects of organometallic chemistry, including synthetic and modelling areas.

As with ECTOC-1 and ECHET96, we hope to publish a CD-ROM of the conference proceedings, comprising those accepted articles and posters whose authors have agreed to their inclusion. The deadline for submission of abstracts of articles or posters is Friday, April 25, 1997. Information about the conference, including details of how to prepare and submit articles and the terms for their acceptance can be obtained by;
