The BOSS conference is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars. With 700 participants and 413 posters, this event was a great platform to interact with scientists on the topics of modern organic synthesis, including asymmetric synthesis, chemical biology, electrosynthesis, medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, photocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, supramolecular chemistry, sustainable chemistry, total synthesis… and many more!
