40th Annual Meeting of the British Zeolite Association
ID
865225
Dates
10 Apr 2017 - 12 Apr 2017
Location
Preston, United Kingdom
Abstract
The 40th annual meeting of the British Zeolite Association will be held at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. The BZA welcomes contributions from all fields of zeolite, microporous and mesoporous materials science, including synthesis, structure, applications, characterisation, catalysis and computational studies. We also look forward to receiving contributions in the areas of hybrid materials, MOFs and the application of porous solids in chemical, fine-chemical and green & sustainable processes as well as energy applications.

ECI — Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics: Materials for Extreme Environment Applications IV
ID
812524
Dates
17 Sep 2017 - 20 Sep 2017
Location
Windsor, United Kingdom
Abstract
Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics are a family of compounds that display a unique set of properties, including extremely high melting temperatures (>3000°C), high hardness and good chemical stability and strength at high temperatures. Structural materials for use in high-temperature oxidizing environments are presently limited mostly to SiC, Si3N4, oxide ceramics and composites of these materials. The maximum use temperatures of silicon-based ceramics is limited to ~1600°C due to the onset of active oxidation (lower temperatures in water vapour environments), whilst oxides have exhibited high creep rates at higher temperatures. The development of structural materials for use in oxidizing and rapid heating environments at temperatures above 1600°C is therefore of great engineering importance.

3rd MMAP — 3rd Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference
ID
879296
Dates
02 Mar 2018 - 05 Mar 2018
Location
Cancun, United Kingdom
Abstract
The replacement of fossil fuels by a clean and renewable energy source is one of the most urgent and challenging issues our society is facing today, which is why intense research is devoted to this topic recently. Nature has been using sunlight as the primary energy input to oxidize water and generate carbohydrates (a solar fuel) for over a billion years. Inspired, but not constrained, by nature, artificial systems can be designed to capture light and oxidize water and reduce protons or other organic compounds to generate useful chemical fuels. Significant progress has been made recently in artificial photosynthesis based on molecular chemistry and material science. However, developments in these two areas have occurred more independently than what is perhaps desired. In the present meeting, we will bring together researchers in these two scientific communities to explore possible synergistic effects of “fusion” between molecular and materials systems.
