NASSCC Overview

An overview of NASSCC  

Solid State Chemistry is intimately related to materials science, combining the synthesis of materials with the investigation of their reactivity and physical properties. The importance of solid state (or condensed matter) research cannot be overstated, as the elucidation of the structure-property relationship takes the central role in the materials design. Our research community provides critical advances in the preparation of novel electronic, optical, and magnetic materials, impacting areas of high national priority such as energy security and environmental safety.

NASSCC takes place biennially, alternating with the Gordon Research Conference on Solid State Chemistry. In contrast to the GRC meetings, the NASSCC places a stronger emphasis on oral presentations by students, postdocs, and junior faculty, while preserving the informal character of the GRC. The NASSCC 2019 will be held at Colorado School of Mines located in Golden, Colorado.
