Solid Liquid Interfaces: Challenging Molecular Aspects for Industrial Applications [SLIMAIA], Mar 2018, France

Posted By: Frederique LEANDRI

France, March 27, 2018

Within the context of improved energy efficiency and sustainable development, reactive and non-reactive chemical phenomena occurring at solid-liquid interfaces (SLI) play a role in numerous industrial applications. Heterogeneous catalysis, electrochemistry (corrosion, energy storage), enhanced oil recovery, water treatment and waste management are just some of the fields that may benefit from improved control of complex and intricate chemical events: sorption, wetting, impregnation, diffusion and reactions occurring at solvated interfaces of oxides (supports, clays, etc.) or metals (electrodes, catalysts, steels, etc.). This international event aims highlighting the most recent advances, presenting a variety of innovative experimental and theoretical methods that improve our molecular-scale understanding of SLI and offer significant promise for specific applications. It will bring together experts in industrial applications, cutting-edge characterization techniques (in situ and operando spectroscopy, calorimetry, etc.) and computational chemistry from the molecular to the mesoscale level. The event will show how key scientific challenges, at the crossroads of general chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, electrochemistry, catalysis and geochemistry can be addressed. This Rencontre scientifique event organized by IFP Energies nouvelles will provide the scientific community with an ideal platform for constructive debate among experimental and theorical researchers from both academia and industry.

The main topics of the program will be:

- Characterization methods

- Computational and theoretical methods

- Heterogeneous catalysis and separation

- Electrochemistry and corrosion

- Geochemical and environmental issues

Keynote speakers already confirmed:

- Dr. Ellen Backus, Max Planck Institute (Germany)

- Dr. Stuart Clarke, Cambridge University (UK)

- Prof. Krijn P. de Jong, Utrecht University (The Netherlands)

- Prof. James Kubicki, University of Texas El Paso (USA)

- Prof. Angelos Michaelides, University College of London (UK)

- Dr. Patrice Simon, CNRS-Cirimat (France)

The online registration ( will open in January 2018, do not miss it out!
