Developments and Applications of Solid State NMR to Materials Science, Chemistry and Engineering Conference
14th – 17th May 2016
As a front-line methodology for the characterisation of a wide range of materials, solid state NMR spectroscopy has assumed great prominence and influence since the inception of magic-angle-spinning (MAS) techniques in the 1960s. From the first important 29Si and 13C applications of MAS, cross-polarisation (CP) and 1H decoupling applied to silicates (i.e. minerals, zeolites) and polymers, respectively, great advances have been achieved over the last forty years which permit the technique to extend past these defining studies on spin-1/2 nuclei to thus impact upon the majority of the NMR Periodic Table. In particular, the last decade has witnessed the greatest developments to magnet, probe and console technologies which have stimulated an exponential increase in the development of state-of-the-art techniques and capabilities, and the materials systems able to be investigated.
This meeting will simply focus on the application of solid state NMR to contemporary material science and chemistry, and it will highlight how the development of the methodology has promoted a huge increase the number of possible materials systems that can be effectively studied. The aspects that will be discussed will include:
- The use of an increasingly multinuclear approach
- The utility of leading-edge hardware such as high magnetic fields (≥ 20 T), ultrafast spinning, double angle rotation, etc
- Methods for signal enhancement, e.g. satellite manipulation, dynamic nuclear polarisation
- The combination with DFT and MD computational approaches which have led to ‘NMR crystallography’ approaches
- In situ operation and strategies
The key aim will be to promote how solid state NMR can provide insight, especially at the atomic scale, into the structure-function relationship of a wide range of materials. In addition, it will be highlighted how this methodology augments other characterisation techniques operating at different time and length scales, such as diffraction and vibrational spectroscopies. It is intended to demonstrate the utility of the solid state NMR approach to a wide range of materials areas including energy materials (batteries, fuel cells), micro-/macroporous materials (e.g. MOFs), geomaterials, hybrid biomaterial composites, catalysis systems, glasses and functional materials.
We believe this Conference will be a scientifically and socially rewarding, memorable and enjoyable experience.

The Conference Chairs
Golden Sands Resort, Varna. Bulgaria.
Located just 50 metres from the sea, 17km from Varna and with breath-taking views to the Black Sea which accommodates ten small islands, all of them incorporating unique eco systems with amazing flora and fauna. The International Hotel offers an idyllic location to serve as a conference host.
The Hotel offers 2 à la carte restaurants serving fine cultural cuisine. The venue provides the perfect setting to relax. Views of the sea or the park are offered from all the suites. The rooms offer individually controlled air-conditioning and Wi-Fi internet connection. Each room offers a modern bathroom with a bathtub or a shower and a hairdryer. The wellness centre of the complex offers guests of the hotel can use both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
The new amphitheatre hall at the hotel offers the perfect setting for the conference. The raised, tiered seating ensures everyone will have a perfect view of the conference presentations in comfortable surroundings. Between sessions, or at the end of the day, there are several quiet areas located around the resort to allow continued discussion of the day’s events or to network and forge new working relationships.
We have secured an optional tour for conference attendees and any accompanying guests they may bring to enjoy during a lunch break at the conference. This will allow you to enjoy the tour and return to the hotel in good time for the afternoon session of the meeting. Please use the following link for further information

We can offer 3 types of registration for the conference. Please review the available options to select the most appropriate for you. If you have any questions regarding the registration options, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
*Please Note: When you register with the Sharer, Academic or Industry option, we will not secure your room at that time. Until Zing Conferences receives full payment of your invoice, your room will not be reserved and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.. We have a limited number of rooms secured at the advertised rates.
Academic or Industry rates are for the registered delegate only to stay in the room. Should you wish additional guests (such as wife, husband or children) to stay in the room with you, additional fees will be payable.
The Earlybird Rates are valid for those who register and pay the fees in full by 31st Jan 2016. After this date, the fees will return to the standard prices. Paying the deposit does not entitle you to Earlybird prices after this deadline has passed.
Prices are shown and payable in Euros. Payments can be made by bank transfer or credit card payment. We can no longer accept payment by cheque.
