10th International Conference on Materials Chemistry (MC10)
4 - 7 July 2011
University of Manchester, UK
The five main themes will be distributed across four parallel sessions. There will be plenary lectures at the beginning and end of the conference, and at the beginning and end of each of the two middle days. Each symposium will have a keynote speaker followed by contributed speakers.
Energy and sustainability
Topics: photovoltaics; batteries; supercapacitors; fuel cells; thermoelectric materials; hydrogen and gas storage; carbon capture; sustainable feedstocks.
Advanced technologies & nanomaterials
Topics: carbons (graphene, nanotubes, fullerenes), organics, inorganics, hybrids and nanocomposites for electronics; photonics; magnetics; sensors; printing and coating; molecular separations
Life and health
Topics: biomaterials; biomimetic chemistry; biomineralization; tissue engineering; drug delivery; prosthetics; water treatment.
Topics: polymers; polymer-inorganic hybrids; colloids; liquid crystals; supramolecular systems.
Topics: metal-organic frameworks; zeolites; mesoporous solids; intermetallic compounds; transition metal oxides; nanocrystals
MC10 will appeal to academic and industrial scientists working on the chemistry, physics and materials science of functional materials. Student participation is also strongly encouraged; as well as the opportunity to give oral presentations we place a particular emphasis on poster presentations
