Functional Nanomaterials Based on Coordination Chemistry (#73)

In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the design of new materials and systems with nanoscale precision through the control of the structure of matter based on noncovalent interactions. In particular, coordination bonding has made an outstanding contribution to this development, and a variety of fascinating new structures and functions has been created through self-assembly process, which allows them to be explored for a wide range of applications in electronics, catalysis, energy conversion, molecular machines, biology, and other areas. The realization of new functional materials rests not only upon the availability of synthetic expertise but also on the many essential methods of analysis and imaging. Thus, the field straddles the boundaries of many disciplines of chemistry including inorganic, organic, polymer, materials, physical, analytical, surface, and bio-inspired chemistry. This symposium will bring together chemists from different disciplines to discuss the contemporary state and future perspectives in supramolecular nanomaterials and systems based on coordination chemistry, which will make enduring and valuable personal connections among active chemists.
