About the Events

Macroporous materials are pervasive in nature as well as in numerous scientific fields. However, the rise of nano- and micro-technologies in the last decades has led to an ever-growing attention to small sized systems. The same trend followed in porous materials. Forwarded by energy- and catalysis-oriented applications, microporous and mesoporous materials have dominated the scientific landscape in what concerns porous media. However, inspired by the hierarchical structure of biological materials, mechanical performance as well as diffusion limits within micro and mesopores, the interest in macroporous materials has recently regained attention. Additionally, recent processing techniques such as 3D printing, stereolithography or freeze casting, have brought about significant advances to the field in terms of morphological control and scalability. Unfortunately, these advances are often seen as discipline-specific techniques rather than general materials processing techniques.

The International Symposium on Macroporous Materials: From Novel Preparation Techniques to Advanced Applications main objective is to gather leading scientists from different domains working on novel approaches to macroporous materials and to promote an interdisciplinary debate between academics, clinicians and industrial partners from different fields
