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

    Summer School - Catalysis: from understanding to applications

    Albi

    Ecole des Mines d'Albi-Carmaux Campus Jarland 81013 Albi FRANCE

    The objective of this Summer School is to present catalysis as a tool of preference for the development of sustainable processes, respectful to the environment. Catalysis is indeed at the heart of Green Chemistry: atom economy, selectivity and energy economy, transformation of raw materials into targeted products.

    This Summer School focuses on understanding how the catalytic processes take place, including cutting-edge techniques, modelling and design of reactors. The activation of small molecules will be presented as an application show-case.

    Participants are encouraged to submit posters, which will also be presented by flash communications.

    Deadline for registration and poster abstract submission:  April 30, 2019

    A major challenge for scientists and engineers is to develop new reaction pathways which are efficient in terms of atoms, reaction steps, energy consumption and wastes, and more selective and safer. Catalysis plays a key role in the development of new reaction paths and requires of highly skilled professionals who are able to understand their principles and tools in order to pave the way from lab to industrial applications.

    With this objective, a catalysis training course is hosted every two years since 2013 at the LyonTech La Doua scientific campus, in Villeurbanne, which is mainly aimed at young researchers with interests in the field.

    Program

    ISOTOPCAT 2019

    Poitiers, FRANCE

    Espace Pierre Mendès France, 1 Place de la Cathédrale, 86 POITIERS.

    International Symposium on Isotopic Sudies in Catalysis and Electrocatalysis

    The main purpose of the ISOTOPCAT symposium is to gather the catalysis and electrocatalysis communities in order to explore, review and compare the different methods of investigation based on isotopic labeling.

    In particular the aim is to favor the exchanges between the scientists working on heterogeneous catalysis science, fuel cells and membrane technologies having important common problems to solve, especially the elucidation of diffusion and reaction mechanisms.

    To facilitate the interaction and the debates between the scientists, this three-day symposium will be limited to a maximum of 150 participants in only one session.

    Three main topics will be developed:

    •  Isotopic exchange with solids
    •  Isotopic labelling for determination of ionic transport parameters
    •  Isotopic labelling for mechanistic studies

    Keynote speakers:

    • Prof. Dr. Roger A. DE SOUZA
    • Prof Christopher HARDACRE
    • Prof. Michel CHE
