Argonne scientist to give the plenary talk at Royal Society of Chemistry meeting on nanoalloys

Julius Jellinek, a senior scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, will deliver the plenary talk of the Faraday Discussion Meeting 138 on Nanoalloys: From Theory to Application, to be held on September 3-5, at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

The Faraday Discussions are organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and historically have been of enormous influence in reviewing the current status and shaping new directions in various areas of physical chemistry, chemical physics and bordering disciplines.

The subjects and participants are selected to represent an area and work of cutting edge importance. This is the first time that the Society chose the field of nanoalloys, and the meeting is the first major international symposium on this subject. It reflects the realization of the extremely interesting and complex science, as well as the immense technological potential, that arise from combination of size effects with composition effects. Together, these effects as applied to metals offer unprecedented opportunities in the design of nanosystems and nanodevices with principally new and tunable mechanical, thermal, electronic, optical, magnetic, and chemical characteristics.

In his talk entitled Nanoalloys: Tuning Structural, Electronic, and Thermal Properties through Size and Composition, Jellinek will review the status of the field and will discuss some of the pioneering work he and his collaborators performed at Argonne. His talk will be followed by 24 reports from universities and research centers around the world and their extensive discussions. The proceedings of the meeting will appear as a volume in the series of Faraday Discussions published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. More details on the meeting can be found at
