Reticular Materials Bootcamp

The Reticular Materials Bootcamp combines both lectures and hands-on experimentation in order to provide the participants with the fundamentals needed to begin research in reticular chemistry. In order to achieve this, we have gathered an impressive group of internationally recognized scholars and teachers, including Prof. Omar M. Yaghi (UC Berkeley, USA), Prof. Michael O’Keeffe (Arizona State University, USA), and Mr. Kyle E. Cordova (UC Berkeley, USA).

This Bootcamp aims to provide researchers and students with tools to answer this question, by showing how to rationally prepare, characterize, modify and shape MOFs into society’s next-generation materials.

The workshop series will be held at United Arab Emirates University, UAE from January 28 - February 25, 2019.
