Session Abstract

In recent years, discoveries of naturally occurring species with properties and structures similar to those of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), polyoxometallates (POMs) and others have challenged the view of the latter as purely synthetic, man-made materials. Moreover, the application of  geomimetic synthetic methods such as accelerated ageing or pseudomorphic replication has enabled a more facile, environmentally friendly synthesis of materials with controllable properties. The guiding principles behind chemistry and crystal engineering are easily identifiable in these natural materials and processes. The topic of this microsymposium is centered on the emerging interface of geological and chemical species and methods, aiming to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences across the fields of materials science, chemistry and geology. This synergy will lead towards prediction of as of yet undiscovered mineral species and the hierarchical design and synthesis of novel functional materials utilizing biological and synthetic complex building blocks.
