Magnetically Recoverable Catalysts: Magnetic Separation and Beyond

255th ACS National Meeting: Symposium of the CATL division

The 255th ACS National Meeting & Exposition will be taking place in New Orleans, LA, USA between 18–22 March 2018. By attracting thousands of chemical professionals, the meeting provides excellent opportunities for people to share their passion for chemistry and advance their career in this ever-changing global economy.

There will be a symposium entitled ‘Magnetically Recoverable Catalysts: Magnetic Separation and Beyond’.

Magnetically recoverable catalysts have received considerable attention. Because they offer an avenue to separate catalysts from reaction medium using magnetic field, they allow more environmentally friendly processes, conservation of energy, and thus cheaper target products. However, they offer benefits largely beyond the simple separation capability. For instance, magnetic nanoparticles have been used to enhance reaction rates via local heating by induction. Also they offer an avenue to explore the catalytic performance of magnetic materials, including Fe, Ni, and Co-based ones either alone or in conjunction to other catalytic species, homogeneous or heterogeneous, with which they may interact synergistically. Finally the study of magnetic nano and microparticles has led to exciting research concerned with the understanding of magnetic materials redox chemistry and corrosion at the nanoscale in order to afford robust and industrially relevant catalysts.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Synthesis and characterization of magnetically recoverable catalysts
  2. Passivation of nanoparticles to avoid interference with catalysis
  3. Enhancement of catalytic activity or a change of the reaction mechanism due to the influence of magnetic nanoparticles

Catalysis Science & Technology is pleased to support the symposium and provide poster prizes.

Registration for the event is now open.
