Porous Materials Group

RSC Porous Materials Group

The Porous Materials Group (PMG) is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


The Porous Materials Group was formed in late 2018, and aims to bring together scientists from all career stages involved in research into porous materials, from metal-organic frameworks and zeolites to porous polymers and organic molecules. The group aims to foster links between academic research and commercial utility in this burgeoning area of science, and enable the development of an active community based around shared interests and knowledge.


The group currently organises the annual UK Porous Materials Conference. As the group develops we hope to provide more opportunities for members to meet, network, and develop their careers in porous materials science.

In 2020, we will organise a parallel session of FEZA2020, to be held in Brighton, UK from 13-16th July.

Abstract submission will open on 31 October 2019, and the Interest Group is offering bursaries to allow discounted registration of just £100, with discretional hardship bursaries also possible.
