We created the Materials Chemistry Division to:
- provide a networking platform for those with a common interest from a variety of sectors.
- disseminate the latest research in, and applications of, Materials Chemistry.
- serve as a window to link materials chemistry with other fields of Science and Technology as well as Industry
- provide for the professional development of Materials Chemists
- encourage students to embark on a career in one of the many sub-disciplines of Materials Chemistry.
The Materials Chemistry Division supports activities covering the synthesis, structure, properties and functional applications of materials to advance fundamental chemistry and technological progress.
It is inherently interdisciplinary, encompassing, but not limited to:
- Electronic and magnetic materials
- Multifunctional materials
- Environmental and sustainable materials
- Bio and medical materials
The name was changed from the original Solid-state Chemistry Division in 2006 to reflect its increasingly interdisciplinary nature and its relationship to other Divisions in chemistry and related fields in physics and engineering.
Our Materials Chemistry Division is very active in holding regular events. Highlights include:
A biennial conference called “Materials Chemistry and Applications” where the latest academic research and innovations in the commercial sector are presented
- A biennial "Youth Symposium on Materials Chemistry" where postgraduate students and early career chemists showcase their work, gain experience from scientific presentations and network with their peers
- An annual webinar comprising a flash student presentation competition
