Dear colleagues and friends,
it is our immense pleasure to welcome you at the first meeting on Aromatic HeteRoCycles (AHeRoC).
At the BUReS group,
we always look on organic molecules as perspective materials and are
mostly interested in their functionality and added value. We perceive
this viewpoint far more general, as an element gluing the community of
chemists, physicists, engineers, and materials scientists. In this
respect, arenes represent a very burgeoning and long-lasting area of
research, which has significantly infiltrated modern organic devices
across organic electronics, batteries, switches, sensors, catalysts,
drugs and many others. In addition, the presence of a heteroatom within
the aromatic structure brings new and even pronounced fundamental
physico-chemical properties that may be further utilized in various
Upon several years of consideration, we present herein the AHeRoC as a
wonderful pool of organic materials. We strongly hope the AHeRoC would
become a platform for sharing and exchanging ideas, knowledge,
methodologies, organic molecules, and mostly to learn novel and
fascinating applications of organic pi-systems. The latter is the main
focus of the conference. In view of the current pandemic situation, we
decided to organize the meeting online. Unfortunately, this decision has
detrimental effect on meeting in person, but we also believe that it
would significantly facilitate your attendance as no traveling is
needed. The AHeRoC will comprise of several invited talks as well as
contributed lectures that are mostly devoted to younger researchers. In
order to make your attendance easier, the meeting is free-of-charge.
Only a registration is required, you can attend even without a
contribution. A link to online meeting will be send to all registered
participants during March 2022. In addition, a special issue devoted to the AHeRoC is organized jointly with the Organics journal.
A HeRo of our meeting is Carbon!
We look forward to see your favorite aromatic (hetero)cycles and their function on 16-17th March 2022.
The AHeRoC meeting is supported by the European Regional Development
Fund-Project “Organic redox couple based batteries for energetics of
traditional and renewable resources (ORGBAT)”, No.
