1st Conference on Aerogel Inspired Materials

"great conference"

"Our team enjoyed the scientific as well as the social parts of the conference thoroughly"

"I enjoyed it very much. I was very much out of my depth but I saw enough to realise that the materials are perfect for solar cookers which should help a lot of people"

 The next conference on Aerogel Inspired Materials will be in July 2021 at Tongji University, Shanghai, Republic of China

The 1st International Conference on Aerogel-Inspired Materials brought together leading scientists and researchers to share their expertise and research results on all aspects of the emerging basic science, technology and applications of Aerogel-Inspired Materials.

The conference was an interdisciplinary forum for scientists, engineers, companies and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in all areas of Aerogels science.

Aerogels are known since 1931, still they exhibit some unique and unmet properties which have inspired the investigation of further compositions, forms, properties, and applications, as well as the design of related materials by simpler and more affordable preparation routes, such as freeze drying and ambient pressure drying. Aerogel-like materials are becoming a novel platform technology, important in areas such as drug delivery, energy materials, insulation, carbon and thermal management, air pollution and water remediation, catalysis, supercapacitors, thermoelectric materials, luminescence panels, aeronautics, ballistic materials.

In 2018 alone the number of publications is now more than 1200.
