Scope of the session

Recently, the development of advanced sustainable technologies, including energy storage and conversion technologies, alternative fuel technologies, as well as environmental protection and cleanup technologies, to deal with environmental pollution and the forthcoming energy crisis has attracted much attention in the energy and environment-related research communities and coordination chemistry has played a key role in the very active research fields.

The symposium aims to provide a forum for active scientists to present and discuss new results and ideas concerning coordination chemistry-based energy and environment researches, from both points of view of basic and applied sciences, as well as to promote network construction and collaborations among participants. The symposium program will feature contributed talks (both keynote and invited talks) from invited participants and will also include oral and poster presentations from general participants. This symposium should help the progress of clean energy/environment-oriented science and thus aid in future worldwide technological advances concerning energy and environment. Topics include the following. 窶「Electrochemical energy storage and conversion 窶「Hydrogen storage and (bio) hydrogen production 窶「Materials for energy systems 窶「Clean energy and energy efficiency 窶「Solar energy conversion and photovoltaics 窶「Artificial photosynthesis 窶「Carbon capture and storage 窶「Detection, capture and separation of toxic gas and pollution species 窶「Carbon dioxide-related coordination chemistry
