Call for papers
The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. The conference this year will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:
- General Organic Synthesis
- Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry
- Microwave Assisted Synthesis
- Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry
- Computational Chemistry
- Ionic Liquids
ECSOC22 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without having the concern or expenditure of travel. The conference will be completely free of charge—both to “attend”, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 3.098 (2017) ; 5-Year Impact Factor: 3.268 (2017); http://www.mdpi.com/journal/molecules).
Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by *15 October 2018* online at https://sciforum.net/conference/ecsoc-22. After the abstract is accepted by the Scientific Committee, the authors will be invited to prepare a full description of their work under the form of a PowerPoint presentation, and to upload it *before 10 November 2018* to ensure there is time for a final check.
We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success. The 22nd International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry is organized and sponsored by MDPI (http://www.mdpi.com), an open access publisher based in Switzerland.
We look forward to receiving your research papers and to welcome you at this 22nd edition of the e-Conference.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

|g-C3N4/Ni nanocomposite: an efficient and eco-friendly recyclable catalyst for the synthesis of quinoxalines||Afsaneh Rashidizadeh Hossein Ghafuri||N/A||
Nowadays, with increasing environmental concerns, the development of sustainable and friendly heterogeneous catalysts has attracted more and more attention in both the scientific and industrial communities. Hence, the use of nanocatalysts with well-defined structures, environmentally benign, high catalytic activity, and high chemical stability are desirable instead of corrosive and hazardous chemicals. In recent years, polymeric mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) has turned out to be a fascinating choice for catalyst or catalyst support due to the special physical and chemical properties, thermal stability, non-toxicity, unique electronic properties, and large surface area. The incorporation of nitrogen atoms in the carbon architecture of the g-C3N4 gives rise to the active chemical sites exposed on the surface. On the other hand, depositing metal nanoparticles onto g-C3N4 is an effective strategy to enhance the catalytic activity of g-C3N4. In the present study, g-C3N/Ni as a recyclable, highly efficient heterogeneous catalyst with a good porous structure have been prepared and its catalytic activity was investigated for the synthesis of quinoxaline derivatives.
|ZrO2/g-C3N4 hybrid nanocomposite: an efficient and eco-friendly recyclable catalyst for the trimethylsilyl protection of hydroxyl groups and synthesis of a-aminophosphonates||Ghazaleh Jafari Hossein Ghafuri Nahal Goodarzi Afsaneh Rashidizadeh||N/A||
Recently considerable attention has been devoted to heterogeneous catalysts. Generally, heterogeneous catalysts offer several advantages such as mild reaction conditions, high throughput and ease of work-up procedures. Among the heterogeneous catalysts investigated, polymeric mesoporous graphitic carbon nitrides (g-C3N4) has attracted much attention recently due to strong van der Waals interactions between the layers, g-C3N4 is chemically stable against acid, base and organic solvents and also thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) reveals that g-C3N4 is thermally stable even in air up to 600 oC, which can be attributed to its aromatic C-N heterocycles. More importantly, g-C3N4 is only composed of two earth-abundant elements: carbon and nitrogen. This not only suggests that it can be easily prepared at low cost, but also its properties can be tuned by simple strategies without significant alteration of the overall composition. The last approach is considered as the most efficient way to design of high-performance heterogeneous catalysts utilizing the g-C3N4 as catalyst support. An interesting phenomenon is that the modification is mainly focused on metal oxides. Zirconia (ZrO2) is a physically rigid material with chemical inertness. It has high resistance against attacks by acids, alkalis, oxidants and reductants. In this study, ZrO2/g-C3N4 hybrid nanocomposite has been shown to be an excellent catalyst for the conversion of alcohols and phenols into their corresponding trimethylsilyl ethers with hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) under solvent-free condition and for the synthesis of a-aminophosphonates. In addition, the ZrO2/g-C3N4 can be easily recycled after separation from the reaction mixture without considerable loss in catalytic activity.
|Synthesis of small organic molecule based on malononitrile group toward green energy performance in organic photovoltaic solar cells||Ali Maleki Kobra Valadi||N/A||
In the last centuries, human beings have sought to supply their energy. Energy from fossil fuels is recognized as a sources unrenewable energy. Recently, due to the reduction of unrenewable resources, increased greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollution, and endangering human health, people beings are forced to replace non-renewable energy sources with renewable energy sources. The most important devices to convert solar energy into electrical energy are solar cells. Organic solar cells are a green class of solar cells. Although organic photovoltaic solar cells (OPVSCs) have lower returns than the first generation solar cells; but, due to low cost of fabrication, lightweight and good flexibility, have attracted a lot of attentions. In green OPVSCs construction, from small and large organic molecules based on donorـlinkersـacceptor have been used.
|Acid treatment of halloysite nanoclay: Eco-friendly heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of pyrrole derivatives||Ali Maleki Zoleikha Hajizadeh||
Halloysite is a two-layered aluminosilicate with a tube structure. The external surface and the internal of halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are composed of silicon-oxygen tetrahedron and alumina oxygen octahedrons, respectively. The reaction of the acid with both the outer and inner surfaces of the nanotubes causes the AlO6 octahedral layers to dissolve and dealumination occurred. The acid treatment of halloysite has been used as a traditional chemical activation method for improving the performance of its catalytic activity. In continues to our research and due to the importance of pyrrole scaffold, herein, an efficient synthesis of pyrrole derivatives was carried out in the presence of a catalytic amount of acid treatment HNTs as a nanocatalyst in ethanol at room temperature in high yields. The solid nanocatalyst can be recovered easily and reused without any significant loss of the catalytic activity.
