Nanoscience and its impact on new materials, biomedicine, catalysis, electro catalysis, remediation and solar cells will be the central topics addressed during the eighth Workshop of Computational Chemistry and Molecular Spectroscopy, organized by Universidad Andrés Bello’s PhD in Molecular Physical Chemistry Program. The event is sponsored by the Millennium Nucleus Molecular Engineering and Super-molecular Chemistry.
Global experts will meet, between October 23rd and 26th, in Punta de Tralca to review recent advances in the field of experimental chemistry and quantum molecular sciences.
The purpose of this meeting is to strengthen the interaction between leading academics and Ph.D. students from various Latin American countries, including Chile.
Among the speakers who will take part in the activity include Gerald Meyer, professor at the Johns Hopkins University, considered one of the fathers of solar cell technology, Prashant Kamat, editor of the Journal of Physical Chemistry, one of the leading scientific journals in this area, and Juan Hinostrosa of Cornell University, who is dedicated to developing nanotechnology applications as invisible clothes and new camouflage for the U.S. military.
Taking advantage of the presence in Chile of these and other prominent scholars, there will be the Satellite School on Current Trends in Nanotechnology for undergraduate and graduate students from Chile and throughout Latin America taking place on October 18th, 19th and 22nd
The activity will be organized in 15 sessions, which address various national and international academic topics related to nanotechnology. The aim is to strengthen and internationalize knowledge in this area.
The event will also facilitate the creation of scientific networks for the exchange of students, learning resources, papers, equipment and the coordination of joint publications.
