Scope Responsive functional nanomaterials change their physiochemical properties by adapting to the surrounding environments. On external stimuli, materials are able to regulate the transport of ions and molecules (biomimetic cell membrane), switch surface wettability and adhesion, convert signal between physical, chemical and biological responses, and vice versa. These materials are playing an increasingly important part in a diverse range of applications, such as sensors and actuators, energy devices, self-healing materials, separation, drug delivery, diagnostics, tissue engineering, functional coatings and textiles. This symposium will provide researchers a unique platform and the opportunity to exchange ideas about the recent progress of responsive functional nanomaterials in a wide range of applications.

Topics include but arenot limited to:
-Design, synthesis and characterization of functional nanomaterials.
-Theory and simulation of responsive functional nanomaterials
-Nanomaterials response to physical (electrical, photo, thermal, magnetic and etc) stimuli.
-Nanomaterials response to chemical (pH, ion, amidine group and etc) stimuli.
-Applications of responsive nanomaterials: sensors, actuators, functional coatings, drug delivery, microelectromechanical systems, self-healing structures, energy harvesters, solar cells, fuel cells, batteries and etc.
-Biomimetic nanomaterials: functional membrane, artificial skin/muscle, superhydrophobic and superoleophobic surfaces, anti-fog coatings and etc.
