ISBB2022, the 21st International Symposium on Boron, Borides and related materials, will be held in Paris, France, from 5 to 9 September 2022 downtown Paris, on the campus Pierre and Marie Curie of Sorbonne University.
As one of the most important symposia in the field of boron research, ISBB2022 will cover the recent experimental and theoretical progresses on boron, borides and related materials – including reports on new (nano)materials, advances on their structure, preparation, chemical, physical and mechanical properties, as well as their applications.
We hope to meet you soon in Paris !

Among important topics, we expect contributions on the physical chemistry of low-dimensional boron nanostructures like borophene and of nanoscaled compounds, including boron hydrides, borides, and boron carbides. Fundamental research on quantum properties such as quantum charge transport and defect-induced properties addressing quantum applications are also expected.
We will also welcome reports on the properties of boron-based materials and nanomaterials targeting societal challenges, including medicine with neutron capture therapy (BNCT), energy conversion and storage with thermoelectricity, water splitting, and hydrogen storage, environment preservation with water remediation and valorisation of small molecules with catalysis.
