Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is my very special privilege to welcome you to the ‘11th Edition of International Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology (CCT 2022)’.
Being active in the field of (homogeneous) catalysis let me express my sincere admiration regarding the marvelous results achieved during the past decades. After an unbelievable expansion in the last half of a century, catalysis reached the stage of general application even in synthetic organic chemistry. The recognition of the bonding properties in the catalytically active species, the mechanistic understanding of the basic catalytic reactions, as well as the definition of the scope and limitations have rendered many of the catalytic reactions the most efficient solution to practical problems. Among others, neither the synthesis of pharmaceutcals nor the application of environmentally benign methodologies can be realised. without the recent achievements in catalysis. .
I am convinced that CCT2022 will provide exciting opportunities to meet different competences and establish new scientific contacts. Welcome and enjoy the meeting!
