Advanced porous materials - Bridging the length and time-scale gap
(Nanowerk News) Advanced Porous Materials 2014 is a two day symposium, jointly organized by ETH Zurich and Micromeritics on the preparation, characterization, and application of advanced porous materials. Hosting prominent international speakers, the event will promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between participants in a stimulating and informal environment.
Porous materials are essential to the development of innovative high performance products. During this two-day workshop, jointly organized by ETH Zurich and Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, lectures by leading international figures will bring together expertise on experimental approaches for the fabrication, advanced instrumentation and techniques for the characterization, and theoretical fundamentals for the simulation of high-tech porous materials. This will embrace materials with diverse (i.e. regular, disordered, and hierarchical) pore structures and will tackle the distinctions between powders prepared at lab-scale and scaled up mm-sized technical forms.
The types of materials covered will include zeolites, mesoporous silicas, metal organic frameworks, and porous carbons with a broad range of practical applications including as adsorbents, catalysts, ion-exchangers, membranes, supports, pharmaceuticals, biomaterials, super capacitors, and batteries.
The event will promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between participants in a stimulating and informal environment.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is recommended for scientists and engineers involved in research and development of products and processes where porous materials play a key role.
