As Chair of ˇ°Innovation on Organic Synthesis: the 1st International Symposium of C-H Activationˇ±, it is my great pleasure and honor to welcome you to Peking University. With the support from National Foundation of Sciences of China, Beijing National Laboratory of Molecular Sciences (BNLMS), Peking University, Lazhou Institute of Physical Chemistry, Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of the Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences, this important event will be held on the beautiful campus of Peking University. With the constructive advices of International Advisory Board and hardworking from the international and local organizing committee, the coming conference is focusing on the burgeoning field of C-H transformation with the great and potential impact on synthesis in both academy and industry. The high interests in this field lead to assemble researchers from around the world to a conference dedicated to the topic at this first meeting.
