Symposium W

Emerging Trends in Solution Processing of Advanced Functional Nanomaterials for Sustainable Development

Solution Processing is one of the most promising and efficient means of fabricating advanced functional materials. An understanding of emerging trends in technologies related to the solution processing technology is gaining popularity. The concepts mentioned under the scope of this symposium have been well conceived, and all recent developments will be deliberated on a single platform here. The recent developments under emerging solution processing especially for sustainable development are an important topic related to energy, environment and healthcare.
