ChiralMat 2021

on Zoom!

A one-day summit of talks, poster presentations, and discussion

Chiral materials synthesis
Chiral materials characterisation
Chiral materials applications

Welcome to ChiralMat2021, a one-day virtual celebration of chiral materials and their applications. We are thrilled to showcase the exciting research from around the UK on the preparation, study and application of chiral materials. We are privileged to be joined by speakers, researchers and editors with interests in a diverse range of materials (chiral small molecules and polymers, liquid crystals, metamaterials, supramolecular arrays, frameworks, nanoparticles) for uses in a range of applications (electronics, optical devices, sensors, etc.).

The meeting aims to develop interactions between scientists with backgrounds from chemistry, physics, biology and engineering, with interests in all aspects of chiral materials research from synthetic, theoretical, spectroscopy, optics, to real-world devices.

If you are an early career researcher working on any aspect of chiral materials, please register to present a poster. There will be flash poster presentations and virtual networking where you will be able to share your insights and ideas with the chiral materials community.

We hope that you enjoy the day!
