16th International Conference on Materials Chemistry (MC16)

The event covers materials chemistry in all its breadth and diversity.


  • Approaches to material design and discovery
    Materials chemistry critical to the design and development of foundation industries, evolving properties and artificial intelligence/computational materials systems, automation, sustainable processes
  • Future materials
    Materials chemistry relating to responsive / ‘smart’ systems, inorganic materials, electronic and magnetic materials, new magneto-, optics, nanostructures and polymers
  • Materials for energy
    Materials chemistry related to energy generation, conversion and storage, including Li-ion batteries and beyond (Li-metal anodes, solid-state, Na-ion…); emerging solar cell technologies, photo/electrocatalysis and solar fuel generation, fuel cells, solar and thermoelectrics
  • Materials for life
    Materials chemistry related to biological or medical applications, biomimetic and bioinspired materials, and new ‘biohybrid’ systems, bio-organic/inorganic, sustainable/green chemistry
