      AMARE 2019 - Rennes

      Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes

      International conference on Applications of Multi-scale Approaches in Environmental chemistry (AMARE – 2019)  -   23-25 April 2019

      The Institute of Chemical Sciences of Rennes and the Institute of Chemistry of Clermont-Ferrand would like to invite you to participate in international conference AMARE 2019, which will take place in Rennes, France.

      The conference will provide a forum to share research results, and discuss new experimental and theoretical developments in environmental chemistry. This meeting will focus on combined experimental and modeling studies of thermodynamics and kinetics of environmental reactions, and thus propose a multi-scale methodology to connect molecular level to large-scale in environmental fate models that account for chemical and physical heterogeneities.

      The list of topics includes (but is not limited to):

      -          Environmental Analytical Chemistry

      -          Nanoparticle Applications & Uses   

      -          Computational Chemistry Applied to Environmental Chemistry  

      -          Reactive Transport & Modeling

      -         Thermodynamic & Kinetic Simulations

      -          Environmental Photochemistry

      -         Membrane Processes for Sustainable and Environmental Chemistry

      -          Chemical Materials & Engineering

      -          Catalysts & Environmental Catalysis

      -          Water Treatment & Soil Remediation

      -          Advanced Oxidation Processes

      Abstract submission deadline: 1st March 2019

      European Summer School on Catalyst Preparation (CatPrep)

      Vogüe, Ardèche, France

      Domaine Lou Capitelle in the village of Vogüe, in Ardèche.

      European Summer School on Catalyst Preparation:

      Fundamental Concepts and Industrial Requirements

      Summer School Program

      1. Fundamental bases (introduction; physicochemistry of surfaces)
      2. Support and porous materials synthesis
      3. Active phase deposition (impregnation, precipitation, activation : drying, calcination, activation) 
      4. Industrial requirements (up-scaling, regeneration)
      5. Other directions (colloidal methods, automated and high-throughput synthesis, characterisation methods, surface molecular chemistry, computational approaches)

      The school will take place over 5 days from Sunday afternoon to Friday after lunch time, with 14 lectures of 1h30 and with time dedicated to questions, discussions as well as a poster session for allowing all participants to present their own research problematic, round table debates and practical experiments.
