In this section, your ideas for IYC2011 can start to become reality. Here, you can submit activities for consideration and, after a short review, they will be listed below and any related events will populate the IYC calendar. Activities listed here have a clearly defined theme and describe how, when, and where they will take place.

If you are not quite ready to submit a plan, keep working at it and come back soon. And remember, you can always browse and search this forum to find out what others are planning and even add your own comments to the discussion.

Gold: Faraday Discussion 152 Ann Ennis   |   added on Dec 02, 2010    |    United Kingdom The chemistry of gold was once relatively undeveloped, but this is no longer the case.┬áThe observation that gold, when sub-divided to the nanoscale, can be exceptionally active as a catalyst, has spurred a great number of discoveries. Gold now fascinates material scientists, catalysis, surface and synthetic chemists and theore
Topic: conferences, chemistry, networking, gold catalysis, surface science, materials science Audience: professional chemists, industrial chemists, postgraduate students, undergraduates, universities, research scientists, professors, physicists

Hydrogen Storage Materials: Faraday Discussion 151 Ann Ennis   |   added on Dec 01, 2010    |    United Kingdom Hydrogen is widely billed as the fuel of the future. In addition to compressed (either liquid or gaseous) hydrogen, two main themes are being explored: adsorption of hydrogen by materials and "chemical hydrogen" where hydrogen is reacted with a material.
