Conference Topics

Scientific contributions are invited addressing the following topics (examples of subjects are given below but they are not meant to restrict other emerging concepts):

  1. Unconventional catalyst synthesis and manufacturing methods

    • Novel catalyst preparation methods: sonochemical preparation, plasma-induced preparation, laser-induced preparation, MW-assisted in situ methods, plant- and bio- assisted methods, preparation and stabilization of catalytic clusters, ALD, etc.
    • Hierarchically designed catalysts for selective encapsulation/selection/trapping of targeted molecules/ added value products, etc.
    • Novel supports: catalysts on paper, 3D-printed supports, natural structures as catalytic supports, smart membranes and thin films, etc.
  2. Advanced design synthesis

    • Machine-learning in catalyst synthesis,
    • Automated methods, fabrication based on theoretical predictions of catalytic systems
  3. Plasmonic catalysts and light/laser/LED activation
