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.).

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.

(Bio)Analytical Chemistry is a Science whose fundamental mission is essential to support the advancements and developments of numerous areas of research and technology. On the other hand, (Bio)Analytical Chemistry cannot be understood without the close participation of researchers from the different areas of Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science and Biology, among others, being nowadays a highly multidisciplinary science based on the basic principles of Chemistry. Within this framework, this symposium aims to be a meeting point to exchange knowledge, experiences and recent and pioneering research in this discipline. Through the participation of researchers at different stages of their scientific career, from researchers of recognized international prestige to novel researchers with great motivation, it is intended to create an environment in which current trends in the development of (bio)analytical tools are presented and discussed from a multidisciplinary perspective. A wide range of topics will be covered, including the role of (bio)analytical chemistry in the characterization and application of new materials, the energy sector, health, space exploration or the development of (bio)sensors in medicine, biology, environment, industry, pharmacy and food safety, among others.

The chemistry of the main-group elements is essential in many areas of chemistry, including inorganic, organic and organometallics chemistry. This symposium focuses on cutting-edge main-group chemistry designed to address current challenges in sustainable chemistry, synthesis, and catalysis. The theme will cover the unique chemistry of main group elements, the design and applications of new main-group organometallic species for non-conventional stoichiometric reactivity and catalysis, and experimental or computational mechanistic studies. This symposium will be the perfect forum for young researchers to show their experimental work in either flash or poster presentations, while promoting the discussion over the latest advances and future avenues in modern main-group organometallic chemistry.

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.
