14th International conference on materials chemistry (MC14)

8 - 11 July 2019, Birmingham, United Kingdom


Introduction
The 'MC' conference series has provided a showcase for materials chemistry for two decades, and is the flagship event of the RSC's Materials Chemistry Division.

Recent editions of the MC series have been very successful: MC8, held in London in 2007, attracted 500 delegates; in 2009, the RSC was proud to incorporate MC9 into the scientific programme of the 42nd IUPAC World Congress (IUPAC 2009) which reached an audience of over 2000 delegates; MC10 saw nearly 500 scientists present their work in Manchester in July 2011, MC11 in the comfortable surroundings of the University of Warwick's Arts Centre reached an audience of just over 500 delegates; MC12 took place in York saw almost 600 delegates join together and MC13 was held in Liverpool and had over 500 scientists attend.
