Consider Becoming an Exhibitor

The ACS National Exposition is an integral part of each meeting and presents a unique opportunity to interact with over 10,000 scientific professionals from all chemical disciplines. Learn more about booth registration, sponsorship and marketing oportunities, conducting a workshop and other ways you can showcase your product and services.



Meeting topics will include:

  • Catalysis for clean energy technologies:
    biomass conversion; reduced emissions;
    electrocatalysts for batteries, fuel cells, and artificial photosynthesis
  • Harnessing the energy of the sun:
    photovoltaic; solar thermal; solar fuels; artificial
    photosynthesis, biomass conversion
  • Materials for extremes:
    corrosion resistant materials; materials for high T/P; next generation lightweight materials for transportation and other applications (e.g., carbon fiber, polymers, etc.)
  • Nuclear materials and fuels:
    fuel cladding, fuel recycle, radiation resistant materials (structural materials and concrete)
  • Energy storage materials:
    batteries and capacitors
  • New materials and systems for the grid:
    superconductivity; rare earths (substitutes,
    recovery); grid-scale storage; generation technologies
  • Materials for energy efficiency:
    thermoelectrics, solid state lighting, building materials (insulation, coatings, roofing, windows)
