This virtual event is the first in the SHUG Breakthrough Symposia. The topic will be Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and related porous crystalline materials such as zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs). The two-hour symposium is designed to showcase the abilities of neutron scattering, discuss the possibilities of using neutrons for as-yet unsolved problems, and provide a practical background and context for prospective users.

The invited speakers include Joe Zhou (Texas A&M University), Craig Brown (NIST Center for Neutron Research), Mercedes Taylor (University of Maryland, College Park), and Hayden Evans (NIST Center for Neutron Research).

A link to this virtual event will be sent out to registered participants.

About the SHUG Breakthrough Symposia Series: The goal of this series is to expand the user base at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. These facilities currently host hundreds of scientists every year who use neutrons in their research to solve and understand cutting-edge problems in their field. Many researchers are not aware of how neutrons can help them with their science, and these symposia will help bridge the gap between non-neutron and neutron experts by hosting focused discussions within specific fields.
