About the Meeting

The Spring 2022 meeting of the British Zeolite Association is to be held at Durham University. Similar to previous two-day meetings, there is a strong emphasis on student and younger scientist participation.

 

The BZA welcomes contributions from all fields of microporous and mesoporous materials science, including synthesis, structure, applications, characterisation, catalysis and computational studies. We look forward to receiving contributions in the areas of zeolites, hybrid materials, MOFs and COFs, and the application of porous solids in chemical, fine-chemical and green & sustainable processes as well as energy applications.

 

The meeting will take place from 1pm on 13th April until 3pm on 14th April and we are pleased to confirm that this is an in-person meeting!

  • Professor Andrew Beale (Department of Chemistry, University College London & Research Complex at Harwell).
