247th ACS National Meeting & Exposition


View Full Event Details

Theme: Chemistry & Materials for Energy
The meeting will facilitate networking opportunities, career development and placement, and provide companies an opportunity to exhibit products and services to a targeted audience.

The Exposition will give attendees the chance to meet more than 250 exhibitors, many of whom are showcasing new technological developments. A number of exhibitors also offer free workshops during the meeting so attendees can learn more about these state-of-the-art technologies.


  • Catalysis for clean energy technologies:
    biomass conversion; reduced emissions;
    electrocatalysts for batteries, fuel cells, and artificial photosynthesis
  • Harnessing the energy of the sun:
    photovoltaic; solar thermal; solar fuels; artificial
    photosynthesis, biomass conversion
  • Materials for extremes:
    corrosion resistant materials; materials for high T/P; next generation lightweight materials for transportation and other applications (e.g., carbon fiber, polymers, etc.)
  • Nuclear materials and fuels:
    fuel cladding, fuel recycle, radiation resistant materials (structural materials and concrete)
  • Energy storage materials:
    batteries and capacitors
  • New materials and systems for the grid:
    superconductivity; rare earths (substitutes,
    recovery); grid-scale storage; generation technologies
  • Materials for energy efficiency:
    thermoelectrics, solid state lighting, building materials (insulation, coatings, roofing, windows)
  • New technologies for enhanced recovery of fossil fuels
  • CO2 sequestration and conversion
