ACS Technical Divisions provide programming and scientific content relating to the theme of the national meetings including symposia, general sessions, workshops and more.

Meeting topics will also include:

  • Catalysis for clean energy technologies: biomass conversion; reduced emissions; electrocatalysts for batteries, fuel cells, and artificial photosynthesis
  • Harnessing the energy of the sun: photovoltaic; solar thermal; solar fuels; artificial photosynthesis, biomass conversion
  • Materials for extremes: corrosion resistant materials; materials for high T/P; next generation lightweight materials for transportation and other applications (e.g., carbon fiber, polymers, etc.)
  • Nuclear materials and fuels: fuel cladding, fuel recycle, radiation resistant materials (structural materials and concrete)
  • Energy storage materials: batteries and capacitors
  • New materials and systems for the grid: superconductivity; rare earths (substitutes, recovery); grid-scale storage; generation technologies
  • Materials for energy efficiency: thermoelectrics, solid state lighting, building materials (insulation, coatings, roofing, windows)s 
  • New technologies for enhanced recovery of fossil fuels
  • CO2 sequestration and conversion
