13–16 August 2013, Clemson & Greenville, South Carolina, USA
Following the basic scientific design and tradition of the previous MMC symposia, the 15th IUPAC International Symposium on MacroMolecular Complexes (MMC-15:2013) will take place at Clemson University and Greenville, South Carolina, on 13–17 August 2013.
The themes for this year's meeting are Energy Harvesting and Energy Industry, Sustainability and Green Chemistry, Biotechnology and Biomedicine, and Global Health. The symposium brings together leading researchers and commercial developers, scientists, and engineers to discuss the latest advances in macromolecule-metal complexes as they impact the foregoing themes.
Macromolecular complexes play key roles in super capacitors (energy), separations (sustainability), drug delivery and regenerative medicine (biomedicine), and in the development of low-cost diagnostics for resource-challenged regions of our planet (global health). Fundamental underpinnings are in polynuclear complexes, capped metal nanoparticles, organic-inorganic hybrids, supramolecular-nano complexes and self-assembled materials, and polyelectrolytes. Not only syntheses and characterization of those materials but also various properties and functions, such as conductive, photophysical, catalytic, electronic, optical, magnetic, and biological, as well as their application, are included for discussion.
MMC-15:2013 will feature 8 plenary addresses, 24 invited lectures, and contributed oral and poster presentations. This year will mark the introduction of MMC Awards, student travel awards, and expanded poster prizes.
MMC has previously been held in Beijing (1985), Tokyo (1987), New Jersey (1989), Siena (1991), Bremen (1993), Kuang-chou (1995), Leiden (1997), Tokyo (1999), New York (2001), Moscow (2003), Pisa (2005), Fukuoka (2007), Conception (2009) and Helsinki (2011).
English will be the working language of the conference. All participants should submit their one-page abstracts electronically and register by visiting www.macromolecularcomplexes.org. Under the guidance of the International Advisory Board, reviewed abstracts accepted for presentation will be accompanied by the submission of a full paper for peer-reviewed publication in Wiley's Macromolecular Symposia.
