LACP3 2019

The 6th Latin-American congress of Photocatalysis, Photochemistry and Photobiology LACP3 that will be held from 23 to 28 of september of 2019 is the continuation of a series of meetings that looks the collaboration of Scientifics all over the world in homogeneous, heterogeneous photocatalysis, photo-assisted chemistry and biology, materials, environmental and energy fields.

Previous events were made in Morelia (2012), Guadalajara (2013), San Luis Potosí (2014), Bucaramanga (2016) Guanajuato (2017) with great success and participation of international scientist of international recognizing.

Traditionally, the LACP3 has an special issue in CATALYSIS TODAY, in this opportunity, the event will be made in Bogotá D.C., the major city of Colombia, with more than 9 million of habitants, more than 30 universities with a rich cultural and gastronomical offer.
