The 39th annual meeting of the British Zeolite Association will be held at the University of Bath. The BZA welcomes contributions from all fields of zeolite, microporous and mesoporous materials science, including synthesis, structure, applications, characterisation, catalysis and computational studies. We also look forward to receiving contributions in the areas of hybrid materials, MOFs and the application of porous solids in chemical, fine-chemical and green & sustainable processes as well as energy applications.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Richard Catlow, Materials and Inorganic Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, UCL

UK MOF symposium 23 March 2016

The BZA has always provided a home for MOFs (and other ordered, porous materials) and as part of the BZA meeting, we will organise a UK MOF symposium with a number of invited talks, networking opportunities and a discussion about "Where next for the UK MOF community".  The symposium will start around 2 pm and finish at 5:30 pm. For the morning session of the BZA meeting, we strongly encourage the submission of abstracts by PhD students and early career researchers working on MOFs. More information to follow soon.

Confirmed invited speakers

  • Lee Brammer, Department of Chemistry, University of Sheffield

  • Timothy Easun, Department of Chemistry, Univeristy of Cardiff

  • Andrew Goodwin, Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford

  • Kim Jelfs, Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London

  • Russel Morris, School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews

Registration is £50 and includes both the morning and the afternoon session. To register for the MOF symposium, please follow the link to "Registration" and then choose "Day Delegate Rate".


Closing date for registration is Sunday the 6th of March. For any registration after this date, please get in touch with Deborah Demathieu direclty. Please explore the drop-down menu for further information.
