Hiden to Exhibit at Hybrid Materials Conference

The 5th International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials

Hiden is pleased to be exhibiting at the 5th International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from 6-10 March 2017.

This large conference (with over 1200 participants expected) aims to bring together researchers with an interest in hybrid materials including:

  • Polymer chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Biomaterials chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Organic chemists
  • Inorganic chemists
  • Solid state chemists
  • Sol-gel chemists
  • Composites scientists
  • Colloid chemists and physicists
  • Zeolite, meso¬†and microporous materials scientists
  • Broad nano- and materials scientists

Sessions focus on the following topics:

SYMPOSIUM A: Biohybrids, biomaterials and biological materials

Combining advanced materials with biology has become one of the most innovative research fields. This symposium will highlight recent advances in the design of functional materials that mimic or are inspired by, materials found in nature. Materials prepared using biological systems, including living organisms and renewable sources and materials, will also be covered. Nanostructural control for the delivery of biological molecules and cells will be reviewed. Another topic of focus will be hybrid materials specifically designed for biomedical applications.

Topics include bioinspired and biomimetic materials, biomineralisation, biosensors, biocatalysts and bio-templates, green materials, synthetic/biopolymer hybrids, nanomedicine and advanced implants, drug delivery, tissue engineering, dynamic and living materials, active materials and robotics.

SYMPOSIUM B: Functional hybrid nanomaterials, nanocomposites and their applications

Hybrid nano-composites offer a unique advantage to enable integration, miniaturisation and multi-functionalisation of devices. This symposium will focus on nano-chemistry and nano-tectonic based approaches to hybrid materials, including polymer-matrix nano-composites, hybrid nanomaterials and functional nanostructures. Equal attention will be paid to recent development in polymer science, metallic/oxide nanoparticle design and characterization/properties of the organic-inorganic interface at the nanoscale.

Topics include sol-gel derived hybrids, functional hybrid nanoparticles and nanotubes, functional nanostructures, nano-heterostructures, self-organisation of nano-objects, nano-composites, glassy composites; energy, environmental and structural hybrids; applications, modern methodologies for advanced materials characterization, bio-nanocomposites.

SYMPOSIUM C: Functional porous materials

The ability to tailor materials properties over broad length scales suggests that research on hybrids can significantly impact diverse fields, such as nanophotonics, separation techniques, catalysis and smart coatings. This symposium will be dedicated to preparation and applications of porous hybrid materials, including zeolites, MOFs and meso/macroporous materials, with special emphasize on self-assembly and templated growth processing and rational design of hierarchical structures.

Topics include zeolites, MOFs, COFs, mesoporous materials, foams, macrocellular solids, hierarchically structured materials, clathrates, membranes, porous polymeric systems, carbon-related functional porous materials.
