27th National and 15th International Chemistry Conference 2016

August 22-25, 2016
University of Malakand, Chakdara, KP, Pakistan

This conference was the first major event in the history of the University of Malakand marking a first step towards institutional growth and maturity. A large number of delegates both national and international participated in this conference. International participants were from Turkey, China, Sweden, Jordan, Malaysia, USA and Qatar. It provided a really good opportunity for extensive discussions leading to new ‘social contracts’ for chemistry.

The participants looked through where chemistry stands today and where they are heading, what their social impact has been and what society expects from them.
They also discussed what efforts should be invested to make
chemistry advanced as far as expectations and the challenges posed by human and social development are concerned.



It provided an opportunity to the participants for collaborations extending to both national and international levels. Some of the research papers presented during this conference were selected for publication in the special issue of “The Journal of the Chemical Society of Pakistan”. 

The University of Malakand is situated in a conflict zone which has been severely affected and people were scared to visit the area. This conference broke the ice of disconnection and made it possible to bring national and foreign delegates to witness the prevailing peace in the area.
