The Organic Reaction Mechanisms Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry is involved with promoting british physical organic chemistry throughout the UK and internationally. We aim to be a forum for those physical organic chemists who are applying their expertise to both traditional and new problems, and to those chemists across these diverse areas who identify a physical organic component in their approach to their sphere of research.
