The symposium, entitled, “Exploring the Frontiers of Fundamental and Applied Fluorine Chemistry,” recognized Prof. Schrobilgen for his lifetime achievements in the field of inorganic fluorine chemistry. The symposium was a 3½ day event held in San Francisco, CA (August 11-14, 2014) in which 51 experts in the field from 14 countries delivered lectures and 20 other participants presented posters. Recent basic and applied research from a variety of disciplines that comprise the broad field of fluorine chemistry was presented. The symposium events also included a symposium banquet in Prof. Schrobilgen’s honour and a reception, sponsored by the McMaster University Alumni Association for Prof. Schrobilgen’s current and former students and postdoctoral fellows.
