Dyes 2023 : Second International Symposium on Dyes & Pigments

HSitges, Spain
Event Date: September 17, 2023 - September 20, 2023
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2023

Call for Papers

The aim of this second ISDP symposium is to provide a single focus to bring together researchers from across the scientific disciplines which create and utilize chromophores and fluorophores, to promote communication across these different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work.

As with the 2019 meeting in Seville, the aim of this International Symposium on Dyes & Pigments is to bring together researchers from across the scientific, clinical and materials spectrum, to promote communication across the different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work in one relaxed meeting focused on the creation and application of colour.

There are very few aspects of our lives that are not touched upon by colour. In the world of modern colorants, we synthesise and tune molecules to absorb / emit ‘light’ more efficiently at pre-selected wavelengths for a wealth of applications ranging from traditional polymer and textile coloration for aesthetic purposes, through complex materials for photovoltaic cells, DSSCs, OLEDs and PhoLEDs to biological and medicinal applications including sensors, fluorescence microscopy/imaging and theranostics.

Colorants have long served as conduits for energy transfer, we devise sensitizers to initiate polymerisations, to deactivate harmful radiation and to generate reactive oxygen species for photodynamic therapies (disinfection, anti-cancer).

We are immensely interested in interactions between fluorescent molecules where aggregation phenomena, which can enhance or quench emission, can be controlled by judicious placement of substituents to bend the properties of molecules to do our bidding. Liquid crystalline materials remain ever dependent upon molecular interactions to exhibit their wide-ranging properties. The stimulation of molecules with light (photo-), electricity (electro-), pressure (piezo-, tribo-, mechano-) has led to breadth of colour phenomena (chromisms) which have been harnessed to deliver exciting commercial products.

The role of computational chemistry also continues to make an impact both in the design of new colorants and the explanation of colour phenomena, and many publications see theoreticians and synthetic chemists working in tandem to explore the fascinating future of colourful chemistry.

Given the aforementioned breadth of colour chemistry, contributions are thus welcomed from scientists, researchers and clinicians working in academia, industry and medicine on all fields in which the principal topic of research predominately features either a chromogenic or emissive unit. Oral and poster presenters will also be invited to submit a full paper to a Special Issue of the journal Dyes & Pigments. Prizes for the best oral presentations and best posters will be awarded.
