Sept. 23-26th, 2019
Xiamen University, China

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We warmly welcome all the participants to the 6th International Symposium on Monolayer Protected Clusters (ISMPC19) that will be held at Xiamen University on September 23-26, 2019. The registration date will be on September 23. This symposium series were organized first twice in Finland (2008 & 2011) and then in the USA (2013), Japan (2015), and Switzerland (2017). We hope to bring together an outstanding group of researchers to discuss the latest developments in the field of monolayer protected metal clusters and nanoparticles. As of now, over twenty well-known scientists have confirmed their participations to ISMPC19.

ISMPC19 will cover a wide range of research topics, including but not limited to synthesis and growth mechanism, structure characterizations, surface chemistry, assembly of metal clusters, computation chemistry, properties and applications of metal nanoclusters and small nanoparticles.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to join this event to have extensive interactions with the participants. As a tradition of this series of symposiums, although most speakers of this symposium are invited, we still keep quite many oral presentation slots for young researchers. You can present your research work in the form of posters as well. We hope that the talks and posters presented will stimulate the exchange of ideas and experiences between all participants leading to new friendships and collaborations. I believe the symposium will be successful due to the significant contribution from colleague like you.

Look forwarding to seeing you in Xiamen!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
Sincerely yours,

Prof. Nanfeng Zheng
Vice Director
Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemistry for Energy Materials
