It was also marked by the 100 years celebration of IUPAC and 150 years of Mendeleev’s periodic table of elements as International Year of Periodic Table (IYPT) 2019. The international conference provided a great networking opportunity with scientists from around the world working in the field of chemistry. The agenda of the conference laid emphasis on the important issues relevant to the present world such as sustainable development and environmental pollution. To discuss on this alarming situation not only academics but also various industrialists participated in the conference. The dedicated session were organized for the debate and discussion on sustainable development, circular economy and women in STEM in present and future scenario, between various renowned CEO’s of the companies such as Solvay, BASF and Phosagro. The conference also provided an opportunity to listen to the three Noble laureates in Chemistry, 2016 i.e. Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, Bernard L. Feringa “for the design and synthesis of molecular machines”.
IUPAC congress consisted of almost 30 symposia and half-day sessions with scientists speakers from different fields in chemistry, working in research and non research areas. Also, 900 oral and 1000 poster presentations took place in the entire week. Sarang also delivered successfully an oral presentation of his work on “Aqueous phase reactions of 1-penten-3-ol with hydroxyl and sulfate radical” at extremely renowned platform of IUPAC world chemistry congress.
