3rd Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference, 02-05 March 2018, Cancun, Mexico

The replacement of fossil fuels by a clean and renewable energy source is one of the most urgent and challenging issues our society is facing today, which is why intense research is devoted to this topic recently. Nature has been using sunlight as the primary energy input to oxidize water and generate carbohydrates (a solar fuel) for over a billion years. Inspired, but not constrained, by nature, artificial systems can be designed to capture light and oxidize water and reduce protons or other organic compounds to generate useful chemical fuels. Significant progress has been made recently in artificial photosynthesis based on molecular chemistry and material science.  However, developments in these two areas have occurred more independently than what is perhaps desired. In the present meeting, we will bring together researchers in these two scientific communities to explore possible synergistic effects of “fusion” between molecular and materials systems.

Plenary Speakers

Heinz Frei (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

Osamu Ishitani (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

Can Li (DICP, China)

Kirk Schanze (University of Texas at San Antonio)

Early-bird Registration Deadline– 15th September

Example topics include: Nanotech for Water Technologies, Nanotech for Oil and Gas, Nanotech for Energy, Nanotech for buildings and construction and Nanotech for corrosion protection

From its origin as Nanotech Dubai, the event has grown to become the Nanotech Middle East 2017 Exhibition and Conference to be held in the state-of-the-art venue, Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre (DICEC) / Dubai World Trade centre from 4 to 6 December 2017.
Nanotech Middle East 2017 conference will present a very comprehensive scientific program highlighting the latest topics and covers all frontier topics in nanotechnology. The conference includes plenary lectures and invited talks by eminent personalities from around the world in addition to contributed papers both oral and poster presentations. It brings together leading scientists, researchers, engineers, practitioners, technology developers and policy makers in nanotechnology to exchange information on their latest research progress, innovation and business opportunities. It’s among the most important events in terms of international regulatory policies and it’s opened to the participation of private companies. It’s unique venue for companies to promote equipment and technology.

The Nanotech Middle East 2017 exhibition is the gateway to the emerging and far reaching nanotechnology market in the MENASA region. A wide-ranging products, equipment and services will be displayed. A number of practical and interactive activities will run alongside the exhibition halls.
