The organizing committee of the 35th Philippine Chemistry Congress regrets to inform you that the 35PCC will not be held this year due to the uncertainties and disruptions caused by the 2019-nCoV outbreak.

We are saddened that this important annual event of the Philippine chemistry community cannot proceed due to circumstances that are beyond our control. We hope that you will be able to join us at the PCC next year.

First held in 1984, the PCC has since served as one of the biggest gatherings of chemists and researchers from academe, industry, government and other sectors, where new knowledge in chemistry and allied fields are brought to the forefront.
