Chemical Science symposium on functional organic materials

24 September 2019 09:00 - 25 September 2019 17:00, London, United Kingdom

This meeting is the first in a new series of symposia at the home of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Under the banner of our flagship open access journal, Chemical Science, we’ll be shining a spotlight on cutting-edge chemistry research and giving it the sort of attention that drives scientific progress and makes a difference. 

We warmly invite you to join us for the first in this series of Chemical Science symposia, and look forward to welcoming you to the headquarters of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

About the symposium

Leading materials science researchers and emerging investigators from a broad range of backgrounds will come together to explore and celebrate the theme of the 2019 symposium: functional organic materials. The scientific programme of talks will also be complemented by flash talks and poster sessions to provide further networking opportunities and discussion for all attendees.

The topics covered during the symposium will include:
  • chiral materials
  • porous materials and covalent organic frameworks
  • nanomaterials
  • supramolecular and polymer chemistry
  • biomaterials and bioinspired materials
Applications include materials for (bio)sensing, electro- and photo-catalysis, electronic devices, energy conversion, harvesting and storage, optoelectronics, nanomedicine and biological applications.

Caring responsibilities

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, and would like to attend this event, please do get in touch with us to see if there’s anything we can do to help enable you to attend.

Submit your poster abstract by 16 July. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting.

Additional Information

Poster abstract authors will be notified of the outcome of the oral review process within 4 weeks of the submission deadline. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author.
