conference exposition

Take advantage of the opportunity to showcase your company products and services and network with attendees during the 24th Winter Fluorine Conference by registering as an exhibitor or purchasing a sponsorship that includes a tabletop at the expo.

The conference exposition will occur on Wednesday, January 16 from 8 am to 10 am. The exhibitor registration fee is $500 and does not include registration for the conference. Exhibitors may register from August 28 – December 7, 2018.

Each exhibitor will be supplied with a 6’ skirted table with two chairs, name card, and a wastebasket. Exhibitors may setup on Wednesday, January 16th from 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM and dismantle between 10:00 AM– 11:30 AM.

The Division of Fluorine Chemistry

The Division of Fluorine Chemistry is an active group of scientists who promote their interest in Fluorine Chemistry. Fluorine is the most reactive of the elements and its incorporation in a molecule more often than not imparts interesting, if not dramatic, changes of properties. As such, fluorine-containing materials have important commercial applications in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, plastics and polymers, surface modification, electronics, solvents, and as refrigerants. Indeed life would be much more difficult if it were not for fluorine! From an academic point of view, fluorine has opened up a whole new branch of "unnatural" chemistry, rich in unexpected and novel reactions, and has proved to be an invaluable mechanistic probe.
