S2. Disruptive Advanced Materials: Synthesis, Properties and Applications - DisMATER

This symposium will discuss the latest advances in the synthesis, characterization, theory, and applications of the different families of disruptive materials that are receiving more attention in recent years, including two-dimensional (2D) materials, metamaterials, heterostructures, nanomaterials, and hybrid materials. The case of advanced 2D materials is particularly relevant, since they are a paradigmatic example of a multidisciplinary research area with spectacular advances since the discovery of graphene in 2004 and, especially, in the last decade with the incorporation of other elements of the Periodic Table. These disruptive materials are considered essential for the development of future technologies and, therefore, for future economic and social development. In this sense, the DisMATER symposium aims to be a cutting-edge forum to discuss the latest advances in synthesis (bottom-up & top-down), processing, advanced characterization (microscopic, spectroscopic, transport, electrochemical, etc.), theoretical developments (new models, structure, properties, etc.) and applications (energy, environment, electronics, spintronics, medicine, catalysis, etc.).

S8. Natural Products for Sustainable Production Patterns. From the Lab to the Field - SusProd

The productivity and environmental impact of agriculture are an unprecedented challenge. Recently, the EU has proposed the restriction of the use of chemical pesticides with the objective of a reduction of 50% by 2030. The use of biopesticides is a solution supported by global demand and legislative changes. Biopesticides come from botanical and microbial natural products (NPs) and, recently, from agro-industrial residues. In this context, the chemistry and biotechnology of PNs plays a fundamental role in the discovery, development and synthesis of bioactive compounds and their sustainability. In addition, novel contributions on isolation and characterization, compounds from unique environments, transformations, synthesis and multidisciplinary approaches are expected. The Symposium is aimed at researchers whose work is related in one way or another to the chemistry of natural products, their structural determination, their possible applications in pest and disease control, and their biotechnological production. Its interest may extend to researchers from Organic or Biological Chemistry and NMR  and other related disciplines (Biotechnology, Agricultural Chemistry, Food Technologies, Microbiology) given the multidisciplinary nature of the symposium.

One of the most important challenges for today's society is the development of a new generation of sustainable technologies based on renewable energy sources that reduce dependence on fossil fuels and help reduce emissions that cause the greenhouse effect. This symposium will focus on valuing the new advances in Chemistry in the development of materials (semiconductors, bio-materials, polymers, MOFs, etc.) and their application in sustainable energy production and storage processes, such as: sustainable catalytic processes (CO2 uses, N2 fixation, pollutant treatment and removal), H2 production and fuel cells, biofuels, storage technologies such as batteries, supercapacitors, solar cells, electroluminescent and electrochromic devices (LEDs, smart windows) , recycling processes, recovery and use of waste, analysis of systems and life cycle, among others. In addition, we also want to emphasize the importance of understanding the relationship between material properties and their activity in final devices. To this end, studies focused on the development of new advanced in-operando structural characterization techniques (synchrotron, XFEL, neutrons...), as well as computational chemistry in combination with artificial intelligence, will be welcome.

S13. Chemical Reactivity: Computational Methods and Applications - ChemReact
Computational chemistry has become an essential tool for the understanding of chemical reactivity in biochemistry and homogeneous catalysis. Evidence for reaction mechanisms can be obtained directly, with the possibility of exploring alternative pathways, and calculation of structural, dynamical and spectroscopic properties that can be linked to experimental data. Most importantly, the development of new methods in the last years allows quantitative prediction of properties not available to experiment, such as complex catalytic mechanisms and its variation with subtle changes on the molecular environment.
In this symposium we focus on reactivity patterns in biocatalysis, homo/heterogeneous catalysis and chemical bonding in complex systems, to provide deeper insights into their mechanisms.
