Date: 28-29 July 2022
Location: Mataram, Indonesia (Hybrid)

It is a great pleasure to present to our readers the collection of research papers presented at the 1st Nusa Tenggara International Conference on Chemistry. The conference was successfully held during July 28–29, 2022, in the City of Mataram, Lombok Island, Indonesia. The event was conducted in hybrid mode to facilitate presenters who could not attend the conference in-person due to the pandemic. This conference was organized by the University of Mataram through the Department of Chemistry and Department of Chemical Education, jointly coordinated with the Nusa Tenggara Branch of the Indonesian Chemical Society.

Despite being during the pandemic, NiTRIC 2022 successfully gathered prominent speakers, researchers, and academicians from Indonesia and other countries to share their expertise. The discussion spans all main areas of chemistry and intertwining areas such as medicinal chemistry, biochemical engineering, nanotechnology, computational chemistry, environmental chemistry, bio- and chemoinformatics, and chemical education. There were six plenaries and six invited speakers from Indonesia, Australia, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, and Malaysia sharing their experiences. There were over 75 participants in the conference program, fromwhich 20 paperswere selected to be published in this conference proceedings.

We want to express our appreciation and gratitude to all keynote and invited speakers, as well as all participants, for the insightful discussion. We also thank our reviewers and proofreaders for maintaining a good quality standard of the published manuscripts. We hope that the proceedings will serve as a valuable reference and stimulate further research in chemistry and interdisciplinary fields.
