Advanced inorganic materials: green and unconventional synthesis approaches and functional assessment

Padova, September 5th-7th, 2018


This Workshop intends to present to students and experienced researchers the main features and potentialities of unconventional and/or green synthesis approaches for the preparation of advanced inorganic materials. Focus will be also devoted to the assessment of the functional properties of this class of materials.
The presentations will mainly have an introductory and didactical scope, and will be prevalently conceived with in mind an audience of Ph.D. students and researchers who do not yet employ these methods, but are interested in discovering the potential and research outlooks they can unlock.
