Nanoporous materials, with their exquisite combination of chemistry and structural architecture, comprise one of the most important classes of solid in modern science. Their importance in the 21st century ranges across the different types of nanoporous solid: zeolites, metal-organic and covalent organic frameworks and porous polymers. This conference will bring together researchers working at the cutting edge of fundamental science with those at the forefront of new and exciting applications. It will be an excellent forum for cross-fertilisation of ideas from the different areas, combining state of the art experimental research in materials invention and emerging applications with computational and theoretical expertise from world leaders and exciting young scientists from across the globe.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2018. Please check back for updates.
