INEOS OPEN CUP is an annual open conference-contest organized by Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds. Following a long tradition of highly influential contests, in 2015 it became open for contributors from other organizations. Previous meetings (in 2015 and 2016) were very successful and attracted more than 50 participants yearly (including young investigators’ session). In 2017 the conference-contest is renamed INEOS OPEN CUP which aims to become a flagship event in the field of organoelement and polymer chemistry.



   Conference topics

The conference program encompassed all aspects of organoelement and polymer chemistry. Special attention was drawn to the chemistry of organosilicon compounds.

•   Conference materials

The conference materials are published in a special book of abstracts – INEOS OPEN SELECT.
