Clays, clay minerals and layered materials

Moscow, Russia, 21 - 25 September 2009

Previous meetings on clays and clay minerals were held in Voronezh (2004) and Puschino (2006). The present meeting is devoted to the study of clay minerals and layered materials and their industrial applications. Layered materials always attract a lot of attention due to the variety of chemical composition, structure and properties. Today a special interest is given to the application of layered materials in nanotechnology. The conference has an interdisciplinary character. It is aimed to join specialists working with layered materials in the different fields of fundamental and applied science. 

This interdisciplinary meeting presents programming in these topical areas:
  • Synthesis, structure and characteristics of clay minerals and layered materials
  • Advanced techniques of analysis of clay minerals and layered materials
  • Physical and chemical properties of clay minerals and layered materials
  • New layered materials and nanostructures and it's applications in the industry
  • Clay minerals in soils and sediments: weathering and alteration
  • Clay minerals in the oil and gas industry
  • Clay minerals in the archeology and art
  • MS 19 - Structure and properties of functional materials at extreme conditions
