Innovative Applications of Materials Chemistry in Water Treatment - Part 1: Removal of Contaminants from Drinking Water

Important information for event attendees and external visitors

coronavirus (COVID-19)In light of the ongoing government restrictions and advice to mitigate risk of COVID-19 transmission, our events have been rescheduled or moved to online delivery.

Our sites remain on a restricted access condition, and only staff who are doing essential site-specific work or tasks are on site. All other colleagues continue to work from home for the time being.

We have excellent and free to use video conference and conference call systems and are happy to make these facilities available to help you engage with us. Meetings are taking place via video conference with participants joining individually from their own locations; check with the relevant member of staff for advice.

As the situation continues to evolve, please check the UK Government and NHS websites for the latest advice and updates. If you have any questions or concerns, please email

at RSC Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BA
for scientists, industry representatives and other interested parties

This conference is the first in a planned series, the aim of which is to discuss current and possible future innovative applications of materials chemistry in water and wastewater treatment by bringing together problem holders and technology providers to discuss some of the more urgent and intractable problems associated with the provision of high-quality drinking water and environmental protection.

This first session will focus specifically on the challenges around the removal of pesticides and natural organic matter from drinking water. It is aimed to those with a responsibility for, or interest in, drinking water treatment and water quality and materials scientists who may have relevant new technology. In particular: water companies, regulators, NGOs, research organisations, academia, land and water agencies and scientists exploring water and wastewater treatment as an opportunity area.
