With climate and energy supply issues, we require advances in the development of various nanostructured materials for future applications. Such a complex task requires the collaboration of various fields. In this section, we bring together both experimental and computational scientists working in this direction, providing us with a molecular-level understanding of reactivity and functions to apply to a practical technology. With active interaction among this variety of researchers, we aim to advance the future use of nanostructured materials to sustain a global circular economy.

Topics in this session include but are not limited to:

  • New design of advanced nanostructured porous/non-porous materials
  • Advanced Nanostructured catalysts/Electrocatalysts
  • Materials and processes for Carbon dioxide capture and conversion
  • Simulations of catalytic/electrocatalytic processes for circular economy
  • Biomass and biomass-derived compound upgrading to fine-chemicals and materials
  • Waste and green-house gas utilization
  • New materials for energy and biomass conversion
  • Computational materials sciences, including electronic structure calculations, nanomaterial properties, and reaction dynamics
  • Materials informatics and machine learning approach
