Dates

August 6-11, 2017

Location

Proctor Academy
Andover, NH Site Information

Organizers

Chair:
Guang Cao

Vice Chair:
Russell E. Morris

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 9, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

Nanoporous materials have traditionally been dominated by zeolites and zeotype materials but have recently been greatly expanded to include MOFs, ZIFs, COFs, etc. These materials have much in common yet significant differences that hold key to versatile and powerful potential for novel applications. While advances in zeolite science have continued to extend its commercial impact, the explosive discoveries of novel porous metal-organic framework materials have stimulated intense search for their applications. This conference will bring together a cross-section of researchers from the world-wide communities working on nanoporous materials and share the latest results on synthesis, characterization, computer modeling, scoping for potential applications, and initial novel applications. The conference will be an excellent forum for advancing state of the art for these intellectually fascinating and practically important materials.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Nanoporous Materials & Their Applications" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
