THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE CIS COUNTRIES «SOL-GEL SYNTHESIS AND RESEARCH OF INORGANIC COMPOUNDS, HYBRID FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS AND DISPERSE SYSTEMS - «SOL-GEL 2018»» E-mail: SolGelCIS2018@iscras.ru +7 (812) 325-21-13

Dear colleagues!

Grebenschikov Institute of Silicate Chemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences - the leading research centre of Inorganic Chemistry in the North West of Russia is holding the Fifth Anniversary International Conference of CIS Countries "Sol-gel 2018". The researchers, engineers, technologists, teachers, under graduate and graduate students whose scientific and working career is associated with sol-gel technology are welcome.

The Fifth International Conference of the CIS Countries will be held at the Institute of Silicate Chemistry of  RAS, St. Petersburg (ISChem RAS) on August 27-31, 2018.

Sections of the conference

  1. Theoretical aspects of sol-gel process
  2. Sol-gel synthesis and research of nanoparticles
  3. Sol-gel films, coatings and membranes
  4. Hybrid inorganic and organic-inorganic sol-gel materials
  5. Xerogels, glass and bulk ceramic materials synthesized by sol-gel method
  6. Sol-gel materials for environmental protection, agriculture and biomedicine applications
  7. Applications of sol-gel science and technology

The work of the conference suggests plenary reports (30 min) as well as oral (15 min) and poster presentations.

The program involves:

1) The school of young scientists, the leading specialists of sol-gel technology will give lectures.

2) The contest of posters among young scientists of under 35 years old (undergraduate and graduate students, young specialists in sol-gel synthesis of inorganic, hybrid inorganic and disperse systems).
 
The cultural program of the conference involves visiting the Tsarskoye Selo with a focus on sightseeing Catherine Palace and the Amber Room as well as a boat trip along rivers and channels of Saint-Petersburg.
