Organised by:

SCI’s Young Chemists’ Panel

SCI, London, UK

Register your interest

This event brings together synthetic chemistry and tribology for a day of exciting talks on the behaviour of molecules under mechanical force. The talks will be followed by a panel discussion and opportunities for networking and sharing of ideas across these linked research areas.

This will enable chemists and engineers from both academia and industry at different career stages to share ideas and learn more about the cutting-edge research taking place in these fields.


This conference is aimed at both academic and industrial scientists, chemists and engineers at any career stage with an interest in mechanochemistry and/or tribochemistry.

Call for posters

Contributions are invited from researchers across industry and academia working on mechanochemistry and/or tribology to submit posters for this event.

 An abstract of maximum 250 words (250 words does not include author names, affiliations, references or figure captions) indicating title, authors, institution included with the poster,  should be sent to on an abstract template to conferences@soci.org with the subject line “Mechanochemistry/tribochemistry – abstract submission. An abstract template can be downloaded here.
