Dear Colleague,
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the IX International Conference “Mechanisms of Catalytic Reactions”.
The Conference is organized under the auspices of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS).
The Conference will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, on October 22-25, 2012.

The IX Conference “Mechanisms of Catalytic Reactions” follows an established tradition, with previous meetings held in Moscow (1974, 1979, 1986, 1990, 2002), Saint-Petersburg (2006), and Novosibirsk (1982, 2009). Since 2009, conferences of this series have a status of regular international events held every three years. The IX Conference addresses challenging problems of catalysis and physical chemistry and welcomes researchers from across the globe, working in all fields of catalysis.

The venue (Saint Petersburg is reputed the cultural capital of Russia) and an exclusive social program will allow further opportunities for productive communication.
