Chemistry in the urban atmosphere & new heterogeneous catalysts – deadlines approaching

We have a diverse programme of topics for our 2016 Faraday Discussions meetings – from catalysis through liquid salts to carbon capture and electrochemistry. There is something for everyone – do check out the full list on our website.

The deadlines for some of early meetings are already fast approaching:

power station chimneyChemistry in the Urban Atmosphere – oral/paper abstract deadline 20 July

This meeting will cover:
• Chemical complexity of the urban atmosphere and its consequences.
• Timescales of mixing and of chemistry
• Urban case studies
• Numerical modelling strategies for the urban atmosphere

moleculeDesigning New Heterogeneous Catalysts – oral/paper abstract deadline 20 July

Topics discussed will include
• Catalyst design from theory to practice
• Designing new catalysts: synthesis of new active structures
• Bridging model and real catalysts
• Application of novel catalysts

We hope you enjoy this selection of reviews and original research from across the Royal Society of Chemistry’s journal portfolio on these topics:
