Welcome to the North Carolina Photochemistry Symposium (NC Photochem). This year’s event will be held on October 8th, 2022 at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. As in previous years, the symposium will encompass topics in all areas of photochemistry, from natural to artificial systems. Registration for the conference is free and lunch will be provided.

The goals of this symposium are:

  • To foster new connections and collaborations among the photochemistry researchers at NCSU, UNC Charlotte, UNC Chapel Hill, USC, UNC Greensboro and other local/regional institutions.
  • To broadly strengthen the photochemical sciences in North Carolina focusing especially on early career investigators.
  • To provide students and researchers the opportunities to present their work in a smaller collaborative environment.


Abstract submission and registration is now open!
