#DynaMIC23 Presentation

The Dynamic Materials, Crystals and Phenomena conference will take place in Fribourg, Switzerland from the 22nd to the 24th of March 2023.

Amphidynamic materials have emerged as a unique category of condensed phase matter that combine crystalline lattice formation with the components that display dynamic behavior in the solid state. This has so far involved a range of materials incorporating dynamic functional units in the form of stimuli-responsive molecular switches and machines with functionalities that are preserved in the solid state. In particular, this has been possible by relying on porous framework materials, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs), as well as other hybrid and bio-inspired materials that have demonstrated potential for serving as dynamic scaffolds. While these unique properties of dynamic materials often inspired by nature increase the level of complexity in understanding their properties and functions, they also open the way for innovative applications.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together experts from different disciplines and provide an unprecedented forum for open discussion towards deepening the understanding of dynamic materials across different material classes and length scales, including responsive molecular switches and machines, porous dynamic materials (MOFs, COFs), as well as emerging hybrid dynamic materials, such as hybrid perovskites and others. Beyond materials design and synthesis, the discussion will address critical experimental and theoretical techniques for assessing structural and in particular dynamic properties of this unique class of materials on a spatial-temporal level.

 

The number of attendees on-site is limited to 100 while other participants will attend online.
