Following the basic scientific design and tradition of the previous MMC symposia, we announce the 14th IUPAC International Symposium on MacroMolecular Complexes, MMC-14, which is to take place at the University of Helsinki 14–17 August 2011. The symposium brings together leading scientists and engineers to discuss the latest advances in research on macromolecule-metal complexes, polynuclear complexes, capped metal nanoparticles, organic-inorganic hybrids, supramolecular complexes and self-assembled materials, and polyelectrolytes. Not only syntheses and characterization of those materials but also various properties and functions, such as conductive, photophysical, catalytic, electronic, optical, magnetic, and biological, as well as their application, are included for discussion. A new topic included in the symposium program is coordination programming.
MMC has previously been held in Beijing (1985), Tokyo (1987), New Jersey (1989), Siena (1991), Bremen (1993), Kuang-chou (1995), Leiden (1997), Tokyo (1999), New York (2001), Moscow (2003), Pisa (2005), Fukuoka (2007), and Conception (2009). The next conference, MMC-14, Helsinki (2011), is the first time MMC will be held in a Nordic European country, and is dedicated to the memory of Professor Eishun Tsuchida, the founder of the MMC Symposium series.
The conference will feature plenary and invited lectures and oral and poster presentations. English will be the working language of the conference. All participants should submit their one-page abstracts electronically to [email protected]. The submission of an abstract is requested for confidential examination by the International Advisory Board.
