UK MOF symposium 2018

The first stand-alone UK MOF symposium will be held from 9th – 10th April 2018 at the University of Southampton.

This two day symposium aims to bring together the UK research community working on metal-organic frameworks and open framework compounds. The conference will cover all aspects of this diverse field, including materials design and synthesis, applications, processing and simulation and we have six confirmed keynote speakers across these areas. While the conference is open to all, early stage researchers and PhD students are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Confirmed keynote speakers are:

  • Rob Ameloot, Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis, KU Leuven, Belgium – MOFs and electronic devices: a good match?
  • Patricia Horcajada, IMDEA Energy, Spain – Drug vectorization using engineered-surface Metal-Organic Frameworks
  • Stuart James, School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Queen’s University Belfast
  • Kim Jelfs, Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London – Evolving beyond MOFs: evolutionary algorithms for porous organic molecules
  • Matt Rosseinsky, Department of Chemistry, University of Liverpool
  • Paul Wright, School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews
