The Annual UK Porous Materials Conference (UKPorMat), now in its 4th year, was held at Cardiff University on the 1st and 2nd of July 2019. The meeting, organised and chaired by the committee members of the RSC Porous Materials Interest Group, aims to bring together researchers working in the expanding field of porous materials, which includes metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), porous organic cages, porous organic polymers, polymers of intrinsic microporosity and much more.
The Royal Society of Chemistry was delighted to be a part of the event, sponsoring a number of poster and talk prizes:
- Giulia Schukraft (Imperial College London) was awarded the ChemComm Poster Prize
- Iona Doig (University of Southampton) was awarded the Materials Horizons Poster Prize
- Alexander Thom (University of Glasgow) was awarded the CrystEngComm Poster Prize
- Alex James (University of Sheffield) was awarded the Chemical Science Prize for Best Talk
Congratulations to all of the prize winners!
