Scope of Symposium

All participants are invited to submit manuscripts to be considered for the Special Issue in the Journal of Solid State Chemistry. Authors can do so online at the journals’ website (http://ees.elsevier.com/yjssc/). When selecting an article type, choose ‘ICMAT 2011 Symposium JJ’. Also, the ICMAT abstract ID must be indicated at the top right hand of the first page of the submitted manuscript. The closing date is 10 July 2010. If you have any queries, please email Dr. Gregory Goh

This symposium will focus on films and nanostructures formed by chemical solution routes for field effect transistor, light emission, sensing, biological and photovoltaic applications etc. Solvothermal processing, novel materials synthesis and the understanding of film and nanostructure growth mechanisms and crystal shape control will also be discussed.

• Solution processing – Chemical Bath Deposition, Liquid Phase Deposition, Controlled precipitation
• Solvothermal reactions, synthesis, epitaxy, and processing - Hydrothermal epitaxy and processing, Ammonothermal synthesis, Glycothermal synthesis
• Mechanochemical, Sonochemical, Microwave, Electrochemical processing of materials
• Biomimetic processes and nature inspired processing techniques
• Solution processing of thin films, Fine ceramics, Direct write technology, Wet chemical processing (co-precipitation, hydrolysis, intercalation/de-intercalation, ion exchange)
• Nanomaterials processing using hydrothermal and solvothermal techniques; Nucleation, crystallization, and shape control of nanoparticles
• Fabrication of inorganic nanostructures and hybrid composites for various applications including gas sensors and biomedical applications, nanoceramics processing
• Novel techniques of processing of functional materials - Nanoscale films, Nanoprobes and Nanocarriers for Bio imaging
• Novel techniques of patterning and manufacturing of materials for next generation displays, self-assembly, templating
• Multi-Energy Solution Processing of Materials
• Solution processing of materials for water purification and effluent treatment
• Green technologies – Recyclability, Self-sustained processing techniques

Peer-reviewed papers presented in this symposium will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Solid State Chemistry
