ACS Materials Spotlight to disseminate advances in materials science

ACS Materials Spotlight is a series of hybrid scientific events initiated by the ACS Publications. Materials are and will continue to play a substantial role in sustainable development, mitigating climate change, addressing human health needs, and meeting our infrastructure and security needs. ACS Publications is pleased to introduce ACS Materials Spotlight as a platform to share knowledge, facilitate dialogue between researchers, promote recent advances in materials research, and evolve the research areas and trends. ACS materials portfolio will collaborate with top research institutions to host the academic events. The most elite materials scientists will spotlight the latest groundbreaking and emerging research and in new ways to bring the community together.

The ACS Materials Spotlight: Smart Molecules focuses on molecules exhibiting curious and desirable response to any environmental stimuli, which will be hosted by Dalian University of Technology on August 12th, 2022. Please visit the Webinar page to learn more details

The first event ACS Materials Spotlight: Energy Chemistry and Materials hosted by Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) was held on July 16th, 2022. Professors Bruce Dunn (University of California), Dongyuan Zhao (Fudan University), Patrice Simon (Université Paul Sabatier), Edman Tsang (University of Oxford), Liqiang Mai (WUT), Tao Wang (WUT), Qiang Zhang (Tsinghua University), Guangjin Hou (Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences), Fuzhi Huang (WUT) delivered scientific talks during the event and garnered 62k online and on-site participants.

Virtual Collections across ACS journals were created to inspire future research in various areas of materials:

  • John Goodenough at 100

  • Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Jilin University: A Virtual Issue

  • Materials Innovation for Global Water Sustainability

  • Recent Advances in Hydrogels

  • Sustainable Polymers
