Turkish Catalysis Society is the platform for researchers who are actively involved in industry and academia in the area of pure and applied catalysis research.

The mission of Turkish Catalysis Society is:

  • To serve as a platform of dialogue for academic and industrial catalysis research
  • To promote the connection between national and international catalysis communities
  • To provide mechanisms of catalysis teaching and researcher training and the professional development of young researchers
  • To raise awareness of recent advances in catalysis research

  • 1st Anatolian School of Catalysis (2-6 October 2006, Ankara)
  • 1st National Catalysis Conference (17-20 January 2007, Northern Cyprus)
  • 2nd National Catalysis Conference (18-21 June 2008, Erzurum)
  • NOx Abatement Catalysis Workshop (16 May 2007, Ankara)
  • 3rd National Catalysis Conference (28 April – 1 May 2010, Zonguldak)

  • 6th National Catalysis Conference (27-30 April 2016, Bursa)
  • 7th National Catalysis Conference (9-12 Sept. 2018, Denizli)


Turkish catalysis society was inaugurated as a member of EFCATS (European Federation of Catalysis Societies) on November 26, 2006.


ASC-5. 5th Anatolian School of Catalysis
from fundamentals to applications

8-11 September 2019

Angora Beach Resort, Seferihisar, Izmir.

The organizing committee cordially invites graduate students, post-docs, and all early career researchers working in the field of catalysis. The school will be held in Angora Beach Hotel in İzmir (Turkey) between 8 and 11 September 2019.

The main theme of the school is “from fundamentals to applications” covering all aspects of heterogeneous catalysis. It involves lectures on selected topics given by world renowned leaders in the field with discussions on the latest findings and developments.

The main objectives are listed as follows:
  1. Enhancing knowledge and horizon of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early career researchers in the catalysis field covering all the aspects "from fundamentals to applications".
  3.   Bringing young researchers together with the experts in the field to help them built their networking at such an early stage in their research career.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in İzmir for this international event and to share with you the latest scientific progress.
