The Department of Chemistry, NITC cordially invites you to the International Conference on "RECENT TRENDS in CATALYSIS RTC2020", on February 26-29, 2020. Over the years, catalysis has seen explosive growth and has brought together different frontiers of chemistry under one umbrella. Through this conference, we hope to create an international platform that facilitates discussion on developments in catalysis. By bringing together exemplary scientists and researchers from various fields encompassing modelling and designing of catalysts, novel synthetic routes, material science and applications, we hope to provide an enriching experience to all  participants through the conference, to be hosted in our verdant campus located a little outside of Calicut town.


 

We heartily welcome you to Nammude Koykod. (Our Kozhikode)
