jin-chong tan bsf speakerBegbroke Science Forum:Hybrid Materials and Composites Engineered from Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

16 January 2015 13.00 – 14.00 Oxford Room, Begbroke Science Park

Prof. Jin-Chong Tan, from the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, will deliver a talk on  Hybrid Materials and Composites Engineered from Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) as part of the Begbroke Science Forum.

JC is Associate Professor of Engineering Science and Fellow of Balliol College at Oxford. He leads the Multifunctional Materials and Composites (MMC) Laboratory, specialising in the complex thermo-mechanical and physico-chemical behaviour of hybrids, composites, and a range of nanostructured materials. JC completed his PhD at Cambridge in the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, and was a Junior Research Fellow in Wolfson College (Cambridge) before joining Oxford in 2012. He is the guest editor to the 2015 CrystEngComm themed issue on MOFs and Hybrid Materials.

In this talk, recent results associated with the design, fabrication, and characterisation of a number of MOF-based materials encompassing single crystals, nanosheets, thin-film coatings, hybrid gels and nanocomposites will be discussed.

His talk will begin at 13.00  in the Oxford Room, Begbroke Science Park. There is a minibus leaving Parks Road at 12.31 which will arrive at Begbroke at 12.50 and is ideal for this talk.  View the timetable here.

Refreshments will be provided, you are welcome to bring your own lunch. We look forward to welcoming you to this talk.

The next Begbroke Science Forum takes place on 6 February 2015. More information
