FRONTIERS IN METAL OXIDE CLUSTER SCIENCE

We are pleased to announce the sixth biennial meeting of the international forum “Frontiers in Metal Oxide Cluster Science”, which follows the previous successful conferences in Jerusalem (2010), Lanzarote (2012), Maffliers (2014), Newcastle (2016), and Changchun (2017; moved to odd years to not compete with other even-year biennial conferences).  

 

This installment of the symposium will cover various aspects of traditional polyoxometalate chemistry and its related fields, but we welcome emerging areas of metal-oxide cluster chemistry from across the periodic table. This includes:

 

  • Fundamental and Emergent Systems (i.e. polycations, reaction pathways, metal-oxo clusters of earth-abundant elements)

  • Actinide chemistry

  • Catalysis and energy

  • Biological applications

  • Molecular electronics and magnetism

  • Crystal growth

  • Clusters as building blocks for materials

 

This FMOCS conference will be held in Corvallis, Oregon, on the West Coast of the United States, from August 19th to August 22nd.  The meeting will follow the structure set out in previous years: invited speakers (25 min talks), contributed talks (15-minute talks), and poster sessions. Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily by the conference as part of the registration fee, in addition to a conference banquet.  

 

We are excited to welcome you to the beautiful U.S. Pacific Northwest and OSU campus this coming summer!
