2019 - Functional Materials

2019 - Functional Materials

Welcome from the Commitee

This annual event, in its eleventh edition, showcases cutting-edge research and hosts prominent speakers coming from all around the globe, including Nobel Laureates and National Academy members.

The event is organized by faculty and staff at Texas A&M University at Qatar and it is fully supported with a generous sponsorship from Qatar Fertiliser Company (QAFCO). The theme of the conference has been always selected to fit within the pillars of the Qatar National Research Strategy (QNRS) and this is why this year we decided to focus on “Functional Materials”. Our 2019 edition features Prof. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski, the J.C. Warner University Professor of Natural Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. He discovered Cu-mediated atom transfer radical polymerization, commercialized in 2004 in the U.S., Japan and Europe. In addition, our invited speakers from the USA, UK, Germany and Korea will be sharing the latest in their research in chemistry and chemical engineering.
