Welcome to the website for the sixth annual North Carolina Photochemistry Symposium (NC Photochem). This year’s event will be hosted by Appalachian State University in Boone, NC on Saturday, October 26th. As in previous years, the symposium will encompass topics in all areas of photochemistry, from natural to artificial systems.

The goals of this symposium are,

  • To foster new connections and collaborations among the photochemistry researchers at NCSU, UNC Charlotte, 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.


Registration for the symposium will be open September 16th thru October 11th, 2019.


The organizers acknowledge the Chemistry Departments at NC State University, UNC Charlotte, Appalachian State, and UNC Chapel Hill for their financial support.
