    Chemistry of 2-dimensional materials: beyond graphene Faraday Discussion

    16 - 18 March 2020, Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Phishing Warning
    We are aware that some speakers and delegates have been approached by companies claiming to operate on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry to book their travel and accommodation for our conferences. Please note that whilst we do sometimes work with accommodation providers in order to facilitate hotel bookings, they would never approach you鸿运福彩app下载安装 in the first instance. Details of accommodation providers that we are working with are in the ‘accommodation’ section of this webpage. If you鸿运福彩app下载安装 are unsure about an e-mail / phone call you鸿运福彩app下载安装 receive, please contact鸿运福彩app下载安装 and do not provide any credit card details or personal information.


    On behalf of the scientific committee, I extend a warm invitation to you鸿运福彩app下载安装 to join us in Cambridge in March 2020 for a Faraday Discussion on the theme of Chemistry of 2-dimensional materials: beyond graphene.
    Faraday Discussions are unique international scientific conferences that focus on rapidly developing areas of chemistry and their interfaces with other scientific disciplines. Many Discussions have become landmarks in their field, and I hope you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will join us at this Discussion to make you鸿运福彩app下载安装r contribution to this famous series of meetings.
    At this Faraday Discussion we aim to explore 2D materials with uniquely programmed physical and chemical properties tailored for technological applications. More detail on the themes of the Discussion can be found below. The topic is intrinsically very interdisciplinary, so will be relevant to scientists from many different communities: physical/materials chemists, chemical engineers, biomaterial and biomedical scientists, and opto-electronics and photonics researchers.
    The Cambridge setting for this Discussion will be Downing College, right in the centre of historic Cambridge, and within walking distance of many other University colleges, shops, museums and sightseeing. Cambridge has lots to offer if you鸿运福彩app下载安装 wish to extend you鸿运福彩app下载安装r stay, with London less than an hour away by train.
    I very much hope you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will join us in Cambridge and I look forward to welcoming you鸿运福彩app下载安装.
    Paolo Samorì
    Chair, Chemistry of 2-dimensional materials: beyond graphene.


    The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you鸿运福彩app下载安装 would like to discuss accessibility, or have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, please contact鸿运福彩app下载安装 to discuss you鸿运福彩app下载安装r requirements so that we can enable you鸿运福彩app下载安装r attendance. Please refer also to our Grants for carers fund, for more information please see the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.


    Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Everyone contributes to the discussion - including presenting their own relevant research. The research papers and a record of the discussion are published in the journal Faraday Discussions

    Scientific Themes

    Graphene has extraordinary chemical and physical properties ensuring its use in opto-electronics, energy and biomedical applications. One of the greatest challenges is to develop and master chemical strategies for other 2D materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides. In nature one can find over 3000 layered compounds with different chemical compositions and structures thereby holding diverse physical properties.

    This Faraday Discussion will cover all areas related to other 2D materials' chemistry spanning from their theoretical/computational prediction to their synthesis and functionalization yielding 2D and 3D systems with tailor made physical properties - for composites, foams and coatings, membranes, (bio)sensing, (electro- and photo-)catalysis, energy conversion, harvesting and storage, (opto)electronics, nanomedicine and biomaterials.
    The Discussion will focus on the following four themes:

    2D materials production and generation of functional inks
    In this session we will discuss the methods for the isolation/production of transition metal dichalcogenides and other non-graphene based 2D materials with ad-hoc physical properties. The discussion will include the functionalization of 2D materials to generate functional inks holding novel or improved physical properties compared to those of the 2D materials itself. 

    Biomedical applications
    In this session we will discuss: a) current state-of-the-art in the development and use of 2D materials in biological applications; b) determine the most advanced applications using 2D material components towards clinical use; c) the unique properties that 2D materials offer for in vivo and in vitro potential applications. 
    Applications in energy
    In this session we will discuss the controlled functionalization of 2D materials for their use as active components in applications for energy storage (especially batteries and micro-/super-capacitors) and energy generation (solar cells and water splitting).
    Applications in opto-electronics
    In this session we will discuss the tuning of the properties of 2D materials for their application in opto-electronics such as field-effect transistors, photodetectors and memory devices.
    Abstract Submission

    Oral abstract submission is now closed

    A full research paper containing new unpublished results always accompanies oral presentations at Faraday Discussions.  Authors of the selected abstracts must then submit a full research paper with a significant amount of new, unpublished work by 28 October 2019.

    The research papers are reviewed upon submission and are sent to all delegates 4 weeks before the meeting so they can be read in advance. At the meeting the presenting author is allowed five minutes to highlight the main points of their paper, and the rest of the time is for discussion. The discussion is recorded and will be published alongside the research paper in the Faraday Discussion Volume.  

    Poster Abstracts 

    Submit you鸿运福彩app下载安装r poster abstract by 6 January 2020. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting and a poster session is held on the first evening. The Faraday Division Poster Prize will be awarded to the best poster presented by a student at the conference.

    Additional Information

    Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 6 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layou鸿运福彩app下载安装t. Please ensure you鸿运福彩app下载安装 provide the details of the presenting author and indicate whether you鸿运福彩app下载安装 are submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation.

    • additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will not be present
    • travel expenses for a relative to travel with you鸿运福彩app下载安装 to care for dependents whilst you鸿运福彩app下载安装 attend a meeting or event
    • paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will arrive 鸿运福彩app下载安装 later than normal.
    You are eligible to apply if:
    • you鸿运福彩app下载安装 are a chemist
    • you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
    • you鸿运福彩app下载安装 will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you鸿运福彩app下载安装 usually provide
