When: 23 – 25 July 2021
Where: Dalian, China & Virtual
Cell Symposium: Advancing Catalysis in C1 Chemistry in partnership with Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics
Carbon-based products are perhaps the most important chemistry-derived goods in the world. Unfortunately, the world is currently dependent on petroleum and crude oil as a primary source of carbon, leading to detrimental environmental effects. With the increasing shortage of petroleum, many nations are facing the pressure of economy dependency shift from crude oil to coal/natural gas and other renewable energies, turning to other, carbon-rich resources. Advancing catalysis for C1 chemistry, referring to the catalysis of abundant one-carbon molecules (CO, CO2, CH4, methanol, etc.), is going to play an important role as these small molecules are widely working as the feedstock (CH4), intermediates (CO/CO2),and platforms (methanol) in this global industrial transformation. Meanwhile, the activation of stable C1 molecules (e.g., CH4 and CO2) and the selective transformations of C1 molecules to useful C2+ hydrocarbons involving C–C bond formation are quite attractive and challenging in scientific fields.
We will connect researchers working on various small molecules but sharing the same sustainable goals to discuss the recent advances of C1 chemistry. Emerging concepts and technologies on catalyst design, synthesis,and characterizations involving thermal, electro-, and photo-catalysis will be emphasized to help cross-pollinate new avenues of research for the diverse interests of conference attendees.
