Symposium V

Frontiers in sol-gel materials

Scope of the Symposium

Sol?gel chemistry offers a flexible approach to obtaining a diverse range of materials. It is a low temperature chemistry that offers the possibility to control the material structure at the molecular level, giving rise to the design of a wide range of nano and micro-structures with diverse applications, such as solar cells, drug delivery, photonics, catalysis, biosensors, biomaterials, among others. Nowadays sol-gel processing is used at industrial scale for producing ceramics, coatings, abrasive layers, aerogels, membranes, and optical fibres. In this symposium, we propose to update with well-known scientists in the field the state-of-the art in the fundamentals of sol-gel chemistry, as well as recent advanced materials synthesized by this route. We expect fruitful scientific discussions with participation of students, scientists, and industrial developers.

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas

  • sol-gel synthesis, biomaterials, hybrid materials, coatings, aerogels, drug delivery, soft matter
