T2S6: Advanced Nitrides and Related Materials for Energy Applications

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Increasing economic and ecological demands, as well as stricter governmental regulations require the development of novel multifunctional materials for applications in different fields of life and technology. In this context, advanced nitrides and related compounds play an important role because of their exceptional structural and functional properties applicable in extreme environments, microelectronics, and energy. For example, in Europe the Marie Curie ITN Program FUNEA (Functional Nitrides for Energy Applications) was established to discover and prepare new nitride-based compounds with novel physical and chemical properties. The symposium will present innovative methods to synthesize nitrides and related materials with advanced functionality and exceptional levels of performance, their characterization, and applications in the fields of energy and environment. 


Proposed session topics:

  • Energy efficient processing of nitride materials from powders (FAST, SPS, etc.)
  • Precursor and sol-gel based processing of nitrides
  • Processing of functional nitrides
  • Analytical electron microscopic characterization of nitrides
  • Catalytic conversion of exhaust or toxic gases
  • Refinement of natural products (e.g. lignin) to chemicals for industry
  • Formation of ultra-high temperature stable nitrides from metals
  • Investigation of nanostructure-properties relationship
  • High pressure synthesis of nitrides
  • Porous nitride-based ceramics for hydrogen separation or storage
  • Functional and protective coatings for high-temperature applications
  • Nitrides for energy storage and energy conversion
  • Industrial applications of nitrides
