24 September 2021 Molecules Webinar | Surface Chemistry of Hybrid Materials


Since the early 1990s, hybrid organic–inorganic materials began to attract significant attention from researchers due to their numerous advantages. Hybrid materials generally include organic and inorganic components linked together at the nanoscale. Because of the nature of interactions connecting both phases, such materials can be divided into two types: a) those with no covalent bond between inorganic and inorganic components, and b) those with covalent bonds between the components. New generations of hybrid materials and nanocomposites with tailorable surface properties are finding increasing applications in many areas, including environmental protection, sorption technologies, biomedicine, sensing, catalysis, chromatography, or multifunctional protective coatings. Proper surface chemistry design is of the utmost importance, as the surface chemistry determines the key properties associated with practical applications in the above-mentioned areas.

Considering the above, this Special Issue focuses on the latest trends and advances in the synthesis and surface tailoring of various hybrid materials and their nanocomposites for different applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect articles dealing with new concepts related to the synthesis, functionalization, characterization, and applications of various types of hybrid materials. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to publish in this Special Issue of Molecules entitled "Surface Chemistry of Hybrid Materials" in the form of full articles, communications, or reviews.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Dr. Inna Melnyk, Institute of Geotechnics SAS, Kosice, Slovakia, Chuiko Institute of Surface Chemistry NASU, Kyiv, Ukraine
  • Prof. Dr. Gulaim Seisenbaeva, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden
  • Dr. Mariusz Barczak, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland
  • Dr. Ryo Kasuya, National Institution of Advanced Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba, Japan

When? 24 September 2021 at 2:00pm CEST | 8:00am EDT | 8:00pm CST Asia

21–24 June 2022 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health

Parma, Italy

Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health, that will be held on June 21-24, 2022 in the amazing city of Parma, Italy. This third conference in the series comes after the great success of the previous meetings, held in Norwich in 2016 and in Lisbon in 2018. Both events were very well organized and were a great success. We are, therefore, committed to match these standards and are preparing what we are sure will be a unique event. The topics addressed by FBHC2020 have been broadened to cover a wide range of topics on food bioactives and health, including (poly)phenols, carotenoids, glucosinolates & other organosulfur compounds, fatty acids & sterols, polysaccharides, and peptides & protein. In addition, a session will be devoted to toxic compounds, an often overlooked topic that is important from a holistic perspective in the role of food bioactives and their impact on human health. Particular attention will be paid on transversal topics such as personalised nutrition, gut microbiota, dietary intake, and nutritional policy. The Conference aims to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing the chance to interact with renowned scientists and to stimulate creative exchange among researchers. Young scientists will have a lot of opportunities to showcase their work and obtain feedback from experienced international scientist. June is a perfect time to visit Parma, a lively and cultural city, located in Northern Italy, that is surrounded by parks, vineyards, lakes and medieval castles. Most importantly, Parma is a “food city”. It has been recognised as UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and hosts the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) headquarters. The congress year, 2020, will be a great time to visit Parma as it will be the Italian Capital of Culture and full of numerous special attractions. In addition, we are planning a “family friendly conference”, with organized activities for the children of delegates during the sessions, including "learning through playing” games focusing on healthy nutrition and lifestyle. We hope you will participate in what will be a memorable conference in the beautiful city of Parma!

With best wishes,

The Organizing Committee.
