In this symposium, Speakers will present their research outcomes on the topics: Precision fermentation and Cellular biology. Precision fermentation utilizes genetically engineered microorganisms to biosynthesize target products including specific proteins, enzymes and other valuable compounds. Cellular agriculture is an emerging technology that has vast potential to address the limitations of traditional agriculture in terms of sustainability, animal welfare, and human health. For example, instead of raising and slaughtering livestock, cellular agriculture produces products through cell culture and tissue engineering. The technology of cultured meat production, a major branch of cellular agriculture, is currently in development. While the projected benefits of precision fermentation and cellular biology have been widely discussed, significant research is still needed to make these technologies commercially viable and cost-competitive with conventional products. This symposium highlights the latest findings and challenges in these areas of research

Processing allows for a more consistent and global supply of foods and increases consumer convenience. Although processing generally improves the quality and safety of foods, it can decrease nutrient levels and bioavailability and produce chemical and physical changes that result in the formation of process toxicants and transfer of chemical hazards to food. Chemical hazards can also be produced in foods during storage and food preparation. Worldwide efforts have been made to study the formation and mitigation of chemical hazards in order to minimize their presence in the food supply. In this symposium, challenges and future perspectives will be presented including occurrence, formation mechanisms, toxicological properties and mitigation of chemical hazards produced during food processing, storage and preparation

Insecticides used to protect crops from damage by sap feeding insects (e.g., sulfoxaflor) are essential for efficient food production, but effects on nontarget species must be minimized. The assessment of potential effects of pesticides on nontarget species, risk assessment (RA), is a complex scientific endeavor that requires the conduct and critical evaluation of standard regulatory tests. RA must also consider the results of innovative non-standard tests, including those in the open published literature. The significance of both standard and nonstandard test results can be judged using systematic validity rating criteria. In this symposium, the standardized analysis of the quality and relevance of available studies on 2 groups of species: Hymenopteran pollinators and aquatic invertebrates will be presented and discussed, using the example of sap-feeding insect control products.

Pesticide risk assessment must extend to all pollinator species affected by agricultural activities. Honey bees are used as a surrogate species to represent insects in the early stages of risk assessment, but where there is an indication of specific concern or where there may be unique routes of exposure, the testing of other species of insects is desirable. While non-target arthropod (NTA) studies provide some information that may be useful for assessing risks, the routes of exposure, species and lifestages assessed in current studies are of limited value. . In this symposium we are seeking presentations on methods and test results for a wider range of insects to facilitate advances to the risk assessment approaches for pollinators.

Pest management strategies are urgently needed to help feed a growing global population. Such strategies need to maintain natural communities while addressing public, animal, and plant health needs. Exciting biotechnological advances are being made for pest management that provide safer and sustainable alternatives to conventional control strategies. Biotechnology-based pest control approaches focus on molecular biology and genetic engineering techniques and include products that utilize Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxins and RNA interference (RNAi). But also, Omics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics) where studies are uncovering the challenges of pest management at varying molecular levels. Additionally, small peptides provide an exciting alternative managment strategy with the ability to block arthropod-vectored viral diseases. To address this burgeoning area, this symposium will merge established and early career scientists in the fields of biotechnology, chemistry, and biology to discuss exciting data that advances crop protection and supports public health. Considering that biotechnology is multidisciplinary covering diverse areas with practical applications, this symposium will be of wide interest to the members AGRO and beyond, but also an international network of scientists.

This symposium will highlight the research of early career researchers (e.g. graduate students Ph.D), post-doctoral researchers, and early-career scientists who have obtained a doctoral degree in the last five years), across academia, industry, and government. Sustainable agroecosystems are important for providing sufficient food for a growing population, without adversely impacting the environment. Crops are exposed to a range of pests and pathogens, which reduce crop quality and yield, therefore sustainable crop protection methods should be explored. Semiochemicals are development- or behaviour-modifying chemical signals produced by a range of organisms including plants, insects, and microorganisms, enabling them to communicate intra- and inter-specifically. Semiochemicals can be exploited to benefit crop production through mechanisms including induced crop defence against pests, enhancing crop biomass, and signaling to beneficial predators/parasitoids for pest control. Identifying semiochemicals involved in these biological activities, and developing an understanding of their biological roles, can enable the development of novel, sustainable tools to increase crop productivity, which can help address the need to provide sufficient food for an increasing population.

There is a pressing need for more holistic data on the effectiveness of mitigation practices in reducing runoff, erosion, and associated pesticide losses from agriculture under different conditions and for different pesticides. This symposium aims to bring together researchers from industry, government, consulting, and academia who wish to fill that knowledge gap. The objective will be to produce collaborative efforts focused on supporting the implementation of targeted quantitative mitigation practices that will reduce pesticide losses and increase protection of vulnerable species. Highlighted research areas might include quantification of the effectiveness of pesticide mitigation practices (via field, laboratory mesoscale or modeling/numerical study designs), improvement or expansion of existing methods for quantifying effectiveness of practices, evaluation of geographic variability in feasibility/applicability of mitigation practices, and/or development of strategies that incorporate the targeted quantitative mitigation effectiveness into the risk assessment process. This topic is relevant not only to agricultural lands in the United States, but also to the European Union (EU), Latin America, and other governments with goals that include optimizing pesticide use and reducing offsite loss and impacts.

New public health and veterinary diseases are becoming more prevalent with global climate change and the continual encroachment of human habitation into new sylvatic environments. To make matters worse, resistance to legacy chemical pest control technologies continues to burgeon in disease vectors, making it even more difficult to deal with this growing threat. Therefore, it is imperative that new and innovative vector control tools and strategies are continuously developed. This symposium will highlight research and development of novel control tools and the field deployment of new and previously utilized strategies in innovative ways. This will include both chemical and non-chemical control technologies, as both strategies will be essential in future pest control regimens. It is our hope that the presentations and discussions part of this symposium will inspire future technologies and research consortia that can better develop viable solutions into the future.

Presernters at all research and career levels across academia, industry, and government are invited to contribute to this symposium. Sustainable agroecosystems are important for providing sufficient food for a growing population, without adversely impacting the environment. Crops are exposed to a range of pests and pathogens, which reduce crop quality and yield, therefore sustainable crop protection methods should be explored. Semiochemicals are development- or behaviour-modifying chemical signals produced by a range of organisms including plants, insects, and microorganisms, enabling them to communicate intra- and inter-specifically. Semiochemicals can be exploited to benefit crop production through mechanisms including induced crop defence against pests, enhancing crop biomass, and signaling to beneficial predators/parasitoids for pest control. Identifying semiochemicals involved in these biological activities, and developing an understanding of their biological roles, can enable the development of novel, sustainable tools to increase crop productivity, which can help address the need to provide sufficient food for an increasing population.

This symposium will showcase recent work being conducted at the intersection of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis i.e hybrid catalysts comprising of either two-dimensionally heterogenized or three-dimensionally confined transition metal molecular complexes. Hybrid catalytic systems comprising of heterogenized transition metal complexes have recently been implicated in industrially relevant processes like the selective catalytic reduction of NOx over Cu-SSZ-13 catalysts where NH3-solvated complexes like [Cu(NH3)4]2+ confined within the zeolitic cage serve as the catalytic active sites. Likewise, a computational study on ethylene dimerization over Ni-SSZ-24 catalysts also suggested that ethylene dimerization occurs over mobile, solvated [(C2H4)2-Ni-alkyl]+ molecular complexes within the zeolite cage. Furthermore, H2O-solvated transition metal molecular complexes confined within zeolite cages can also form under certain reaction conditions, as evidenced by recent computational and/or experimental studies (Cu, Pd, and Fe).The referenced literature also suggests that a unique feature of such hybrid catalytic systems is that the solvated transitional metal ions are mobile within the confining environment of the solid support (say zeolite), and the catalytic cycle occurs on these mobile molecular complex sites that can reversibly interconvert among various mono- di- and multi-nuclear molecular complexes to mediate distinct elementary steps during steady-state catalytic turnover. Elsewhere, examples of pre-synthesized hybrid catalytic systems composed of heterogenized molecular catalysts also exist in the literature where hybrid catalysts were used for various catalytic chemistries including nitroarene reduction, ethylene polymerization, fuel reforming, electro-reduction of oxygen, electro-reduction of carbon dioxide, alkene metathesis, water oxidation, etc. Noting literature reported examples of intentional (pre-synthesized) and unintentional (formed in situ during reaction) hybrid catalytic systems, it becomes clear that a more systematic, rational design approach needs to be taken to study the unique interactions and dynamics within such hybrid catalysts to ultimately develop transformative technologies and bridge the knowledge gap between homogeneous-heterogeneous catalysis. Specifically, rationally designed hybrid catalytic systems based on non-toxic, heterogenized transition metal molecular complexes hold promise for sustainable catalysis and green chemistry applications. The catalytic sites in such hybrid catalysts are expected to exhibit enhanced tunability with ligand-field chemistry, which can ultimately yield atomically efficient, dynamic catalytic sites that are more active and/or selective than traditional heterogeneous catalysts and homogeneous catalysts. This symposium aims to highlight some of the challenges of studying hybrid systems and provide state-of-the-art insights into the most suitable experimental and computational techniques to circumvent some of those challenges.

In current paradigms, most polymers (particularly plastics) are used once and disposed, whereafter they accumulate in the environment. A better vision is that of a circular economy, wherein we reclaim carbon in waste polymers, recycle to produce virgin-quality polymers, or upcycle it to produce value-added commodities. Key steps in this sustainable approach are the deconstruction of waste polymers into basic chemical building blocks, and the conversion of those building blocks into fungible products. This symposium focuses on emerging thermochemical and catalytic technologies, non-conventional techniques including but not limited to microwave and plasma assisted recycling/upcycling of polymer wastes and the supporting research topics that enable polymer reclamation. We welcome contributions in applied and fundamental catalysis; analysis and modelling of the complex reaction networks arising in polymer deconstruction; and systems level analyses that consider the economic and environmental impacts of emerging technologies. This symposium will foster cross-pollination of knowledge used for developing polymer waste conversion processes.

This symposium delves into understanding and leveraging complex effects at catalytic interfaces, including electric fields and metal-support interactions. Topics covered include catalyst design, synthesis, characterization, kinetics, and computational approaches. Field driven catalytic technologies can provide transformative routes to move stubborn molecules like H2O, CO2, N2, and CH4 higher up the free energy landscape to more valuable chemicals and enable chemical decarbonization. Advancing these technologies requires an understanding of the field effects on the catalytic process and design of catalytic materials to facilitate efficient conversion. This symposium will consist of studies addressing issues facing catalysts under field driven reaction environments producing important industrial chemicals like H2, NH3, CH3OH, C2H4, C3H6 etc. Metal-support interactions substantially impact the catalytic performance of nanocatalysts composed of metal nanoparticles/single atoms stabilized on a support. Recent progress has been made in controlling the activity/selectivity of supported nanocatalysts and enhancing their stability by harnessing the electronic/strong metal-support interaction (EMSI and SMSI) in thermo-/electro-/photo-catalysis. In-depth understanding on the structure-performance relationship and elucidating the reaction pathways will rely on the synergistic workforce in catalyst design/synthesis, sophisticated characterization techniques, and theoretical studies.

Information flows to us via many channels. Misleading information is more than an inconvenience, it can create chaos and delay or prevent decisions in areas such as public health, environmental action, and the market. Society action taken without regard for reliable information is undesirable. Assessing the quality of scientific information is an art, a skill that not every member of society is capable of performing. Mis- and dis-information, claims not supported by evidence, can spread like wildfire; if unchallenged, societal polarization can increase and confidence in public institutions can erode. What are the best practices that we can share, to help society understand and resolve complex social and technical issues? This session brings elements of information theory, education, libraries, behavioral science, artificial intelligence, and public policy as tools to address misleading information.

As 2D materials have been more broadly investigated beyond the original interest in graphene, a diverse range of 2D systems has emerged, with unique electronic, optical, mechanical, and tribological properties. In some cases, such materials and interfaces have been created through doping or application of electric fields or strain in classical 2D materials. In other cases, new classes of 2D materials have been synthesized by vertically stacking various 2D materials into van der Waals heterostructures, as well as chemically distinct materials with 2D structures, including 2D COFs. 2D materials can also act as a foundation for the assembly of new molecular materials or interfaces, including through on-surface reactions, providing a platform for the creation of materials with tailored properties that can be characterized from molecular to macroscopic scales. This symposium aims to facilitate connections between emerging research communities engaged in the synthesis and characterization of 2D materials and interfaces. The interdisciplinary nature of the symposium encourages the exploration of theoretical foundations, fundamental properties, and practical applications, contributing to the ongoing development of this dynamic and rapidly evolving field.

Colloidal nanocrystals are useful components for the assembly of complex materials, as their properties and assembly behavior can be readily tuned as a function of their composition, sizes, shapes, and ligand coatings. However, while the ability to invent new material building blocks affords significant versatility in materials design, it also requires the development of new principles to identify and explain correlations between their synthesis, structures, and properties. Critically, these investigations include both the “synthesis of” new colloidal nanoparticles (e.g. methods to manipulate all aspects of nanoparticle composition and structure), and “synthesis with” these new material components (e.g. novel bonding and assembly strategies to build hierarchical materials). This symposium will focus on recent developments and future directions for colloidal nanomaterials synthesis, including both “synthesis of” new colloidal components for materials, and “synthesis with” these tailorable building blocks. Key directions for the production, assembly, characterization, structure-property relationships, and fabrication of nanoparticles and nanoparticle-based materials and devices will be emphasized to guide the future development of the field.

"Nanoparticles with well-defined structures are of broad interest in catalyzing important chemical transformations. Benefiting from their large surface-to-volume ratios, abundant low-coordination surface atoms, and controllable surface energy, nanoparticles have been extensively studied in a broad range of reactions. With the rapid advances in synthesis, an increasing number of nanoparticles with customized sizes, morphologies, surface lattices, chemical compositions, and surface ligands are available. Studies on how nanostructures, surface energy, and surface ligands impact their catalytic performance become possible in chemical and energy transformations. This symposium focuses on designing nanomaterials with defined nanostructures to solve the fundamental challenges of understanding the synthesis-nanostructure-activity correlations of functional nanoparticles. A broad range of topics, from synthesis, surface characterization, reaction mechanisms, to theory modeling, will be highlighted in this symposium: • Controlled synthesis of catalytically active nanoparticles • Controlled synthesis of catalytically active hybrid nanomaterials • Conversion of CO2, N2 and CH4 • Water splitting using nanoparticles • Assembly of nanomaterials for complex reactions • Plasmon-enhanced photocatalysis • Hot carrier-driven chemical transformations • Eletrocatalysis using defined nanoparticles • The role of surface ligands in tuning reaction pathways • Surface spectroscopy to characterize reaction mechanisms • Product selectivity control using nanomaterials • Theory and modeling of reaction mechanisms"

Electric double layer formation at solid-electrolyte interfaces often plays defining roles in governing the performance of electrochemical systems, from batteries and electrolyzers to electrochemical biosensors. While double layer formation is increasingly studied in many fields, including colloid science, electrochemistry, physical chemistry, and engineering, major questions persist surrounding how molecular level details of double layer formation are connected to interfacial properties and electrochemical reactivity. This is especially true under conditions of large surface potential and high ion concentrations that are common in many electrochemical systems. This symposium will include a diverse community of early-, mid-, and established-career scientists investigating interfacial phenomena in electrochemical systems. By bringing together leading experimental and theoretical scientists working at the intersection of colloid science and electrochemical systems, we aim to facilitate discussions and collaborations that can lead to breakthroughs in linking electric double layer formation to electrochemical properties. We plan to invite leaders in the complementary technical areas of surface forces measurements, interfacial spectroscopy, electrochemical microscopy, theory, and simulation. By spanning multiple interrelated impact areas, including energy storage, electrocatalysis, and biological sensing, we aspire to reveal cross-cutting themes for how double layer formation can be leveraged to control interfacial properties in electrochemical systems.

The properties of polymer interfaces and thin films play important roles in many applications ranging from packaging, adhesives, coatings, biomaterials, sensors, to microelectronics. The polymer interfacial and thin film properties are mediated by their molecular structures. It is thus significant to develop experimental and simulation methods to study molecular structures of polymer interfaces and polymer thin films. To satisfy increased demands of new applications, new polymer materials have been continuously developed with desired interfacial structures or thin film properties. This symposium will focus on the recent progress in the materials development, molecular level characterization, and modeling of polymer interfaces and polymer thin films.

Electrostatic forces are crucial for many key biochemical processes. For example all energy transduction processes, such as catalysis, proton transport, electron transfer, ion homeostasis, involves electrostatic interactions. However, modeling electrostatic forces and effects in inhomogeneous media in the cellular environment is not a trivial task. We propose to organize a symposium entitled “Electrostatics and polarization in inhomogeneous media: Physico-chemical effects at the interface of macromolecule-water phases” to bring together researchers working in the general area of electrostatics of biological macromolecules. The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers with common interests in electrostatic and polarization effects in biological macromolecules to forge new collaborations or strengthen ongoing collaborations of common interesting questions. A symposium with researchers utilizing and developing different experimental and computational methods certainly helps reveal the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches and make further improvements. The symposium can also be used to identify important new questions for which experiment is necessary for physical insight, to guide extension of theoretical and computational models, and to provide quantitative data for benchmark of models.

We have all seen the news and articles about the development of quantum computers. What is less discussed publicly is the impact that quantum computers could have on chemistry and the fact that chemistry has a huge role to play in the development of quantum computing. Molecules themselves can act as qubits in quantum computers, and techniques that have been used to advance computational chemistry can themselves be adapted to advance quantum computing. In return, quantum computing is predicted to give a lift to electronic structure theory, dynamics, and spectroscopy. This symposium will share the latest developments at the interface between chemistry and quantum computing and brainstorm new directions where chemists have a unique power to contribute to the field. Topics will include quantum computing algorithm development and molecular quantum computing architectures, as well as the back-and-forth orthogonal directions of using quantum devices to simulate chemistry and using molecules as a platform for quantum computing and simulation.

This symposium will focus on the intersection of measurement and modeling, especially as they relate to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and large, language models (LLMs) to address specific resilient and mitigation challenges. The Climate and Atmospheric Chemistry communities have petaflops of computing power and petabyte-sized data sets. Still, we struggle to answer operationally relevant questions over moderate timeframes. Beyond the national and international political and policy debates, engineers, city and state actors, military operations, and economic estimators, among others, need to be able to translate the outputs from our myriad sensor and measurement systems to meaningful predictions on relevant size and time scales to direct resources efficiently. This symposium will explore how the communities historical and ongoing work in measurement and modeling might be augmented by recent developments in AI and LLMs to address specific requirements and to solve existing engineering resiliency and mitigation challenges.

Managing CO2 emissions at the gigaton-scale requires transformative scientific advances to capture, convert, and store emissions. In a significant advance over existing discrete CO2 capture, conversion and storage pathways, novel functional materials and integrated chemical pathways have the potential to significantly enhance the overall energy efficiencies of carbon transformations. Increasingly low cost of renewable energy resources has unlocked the potential for harnessing electron-, photon-, and plasma-based approaches for carbon transformations. Therefore, this symposium aims to highlight these advances which are timely, relevant, and necessary.

Green hydrogen has gained worldwide attention as it can become a strong enabler for global decarbonation and climate control. It can be used for oil upgrading, fertilizer synthesis, metal/steel production, synthetic fuels, transportation, etc. Green hydrogen can be produced via water electrolysis using water and renewable electricity, thus significantly reducing the carbon footprint from conventional hydrogen production process-methane reforming. According to the estimate from IRENA, the need for water electrolyzers will reach 5000 GW to contain global temperature increase below 1.5 oC by 2050. Meanwhile, there have been grand challenges for green hydrogen production and adaptation, including high CapEx and OpEx cost for electrolyzer system, coupling with renewables, storage and transport, vertical integration with existing industries. Therefore, this symposium aims to pinpoint these grand challenges by providing critical perspectives from the industries and stakeholders. The interested topics may include but are not limited to the following categories: 1) advances of water electrolysis technologies; 2) water electrolyzer manufacturing and gigafactory; 3) techno-economics of water electrolyzers; 4) integration between renewable energy and water electrolyzers; 5) green hydrogen storage and transport.; 6) adaption of and application of green hydrogen from multiple industries; 7) hydrogen safety and public acceptance; 8) Initiatives from recent DOE’s regional H2 hubs.

The current global market value of methane (natural gas) is $105 billion and is projected to grow at least 5% per year. Methane is second in terms of contribution to the greenhouse gas inventory, between carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, and accounting for about 30% of the global warming since the industrial revolution; the atmospheric concentration of methane is increasing faster than at any time since record keeping began in the 1980s. Methane’s savior is its mean atmospheric lifetime of about ten years, providing a near-term opportunity to mitigate its atmospheric concentration, the imbalance between natural sources and sinks. This symposium includes methane sources and sinks, measurement, control, and use technology, climate modeling, regulatory impacts, and market supply and demand.

Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are manmade chemicals and have been widely used since their development in 1940s. These synthetic compounds are resistant to degradation due to the presence of carbon-fluorine (C-F) bonds and are nicknamed as “forever chemicals†. PFAS have been also used in military within aqueous film forming foams (AFFF) for fire training and emergency response purposes. It is estimated that around 110 million Americans find PFAS contamination in their drinking water supplies. Exposure of PFAS including their short-chain cousins has been linked to several health-related issues such as cancer, elevated cholesterol, obesity in humans. Recently, the Biden-Harris Administration and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a national drinking water standard for perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) as well as mixtures of several PFAS compounds. Various traditional techniques have been attempted to degrade and remove PFAS from contaminated media. The incineration of PFAS with other wastes have potential to produce the active greenhouse gases. This symposium will discuss recent advances in research efforts on the degradation, destruction, detection, isolation, removal, and sensing of PFAS. Moreover, research on fluorine free PFAS alternatives and toxic effects of PFAS will also be discussed.

Most existing water treatment processes rely on the use of chemical inputs, such as coagulants, oxidants, and disinfectants. The transportation and storage of these chemicals can jeopardize the resilience of centralized water treatment and create intrinsic challenges for distributed water treatment. Recent attention has been drawn to treatment processes that mainly consume electricity instead of chemicals. These processes use electricity to drive separation processes (e.g., electrodialysis), provide direct redox power (e.g., electrochemical redox processes), or generate chemicals in situ (e.g., electrocoagulation, electrochemical acid/base production). Compared to chemical inputs, electricity is easier to deliver, can be generated locally upon grid disruption, and can be produced using sustainable energy for remote applications. As energy cost decreases and the treatment needs evolve (e.g., more stringent standards, zero-liquid discharge, and resource recovery), previously cost-prohibitive electrified processes may become economically favorable. In the meantime, new high-performance and energy-efficient electrified treatment processes are emerging. Therefore, we invite abstract submissions on electrified water treatment processes. The relevant technical areas include, but are not limited to, electrocoagulation, electrochemical redox processes, electrodialysis, electrified membranes, electrosorption, and capacitive deionization, electrochemical or electrophysical water disinfection, electric-field assisted processes, and electrochemical resource recovery. Abstracts on techno-economic analysis (TEA) and life cycle assessment (LCA) of electrified water treatment processes are also welcome.

[Virtual Presentations Only] Environmental pollutants in our planet are mainly present in the water, sediment, and air. The day-to-day life cycle combined with industrial development has vastly increased during the past decade and it is affecting organisms and finally human health. Developmental activities in different countries have been directly focused on growth of cities and states in various countries. The development process and its subsequent activities includes physical, chemical and biological processes involving diverse matrices (air, water and sediments). The environmental processes on identifying the enrichment of pollutants (especially toxic metals, micro/nano plastics and hydrocarbons) have been developed in various laboratories/ institutes around the world and there are numerous methodologies that are being pursued to identify the level of pollutants in different matrices. Many processes involved in the development modifies or changes the natural environment into an artificial or modified environment where biogeochemical process plays a major role in all the three matrices. However, overall sustainable development has taken a back seat in many of the developmental activities and in the present condition it has led to take extreme steps to reduce the contamination/ pollution which happened during the past developmental activities from the early 1970s till date. The symposium will focus on different approaches and various indicators that are being analyzed in different studies/ laboratories around the world. This is mainly focused to learn and know the sources of pollution and subsequently their abatement which will lead to sustainable development.

The success of any effort to model environmental chemistry outcomes, be they fate, transport, transformation, or bioactivity, relies upon a suitable understanding and representation of the underlying and causative chemistry. This symposium invites direct scrutiny of the advantages, disadvantages, and methodologies associated with the various means of representing chemical structure pertaining to modeling and organizing chemical data. Topics can include modern approaches for chemical representation such as string encoding, fingerprinting, graph representation, analytical spectra, substructure characterization, or novel basis sets. Emphasis is placed on the interpretability of these representations, and how they can help chemists harness modern cheminformatics and computational approaches while remaining intuitive in the resulting models. We are also interested in new ontological schemas for organizing chemical classes of environmental concern, which may emerge from unsupervised machine learning or expert-driven efforts to better categorize chemicals of contemporary interest.

The environmental community has invested tremendous resources in the past to understand the fate and transport of emerging per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and micro/nanoplastics (MNPs), and to develop sustainable technologies to remove them from water, air and soil. The efforts are often carried out by separate research groups, with limited communication between them. However, in the real world, these chemicals or materials are often present in the same environment and they interact with each other closely, leading to altered environmental fate and transport. For example, MNPs are known to provide large areas for contaminant adsorption, which in turn may alter the surface properties of MNPs, resulting in modified fate and transport of both chemicals. Some microplastics are actually made of polymeric PFAS. Therefore, understanding the environmental processes associated with both groups of contaminants is imperative. This symposium aims to provide a venue for researchers who have experience with either or both of these emerging contaminants and are interested in sharing their expertise and learning from each other to generate new perspectives and develop novel technologies to simultaneously tackle the complex mixtures of different environmental pollutants.

Plastic waste, a primary environmental contaminant pervading landfills and marine ecosystems, has elicited widespread global concern. This is attributable to its prodigious production rates, persistent durability, and the underutilization of extant waste management methodologies. While recycling is often advocated to mitigate the deleterious effects of plastic pollution, it is frequently hampered by significant limitations, including elevated costs and the degradation of material quality. A more sustainable approach involves the upcycling of plastic waste into materials of higher economic value to offset production costs. A plethora of upcycling methodologies are under continuous investigation and development, representing the most viable economic strategy to address the burgeoning issue of plastic waste. This session offers an exhaustive overview of the most promising chemical and biological avenues for the upcycling and valorization of prevalent plastics and composite plastic detritus. The advancement of efficacious upcycling and valorization protocols, within the paradigm of a circular economy, is imperative. Such processes should aim to generate not only monomers for the synthesis of new plastic materials but also high-value products or intermediates that could serve as inputs for various industrial supply chains. Presented herein is an innovative and sustainable paradigm, showcased in this session, which advocates for the efficient upcycling and valorization of plastics. This is achieved through an integrative catalytic and biological treatment using biomass-derived chemicals, culminating in the production of high-value platform chemicals.

Mineral crystallization, aggregation, and dissolution represent crucial research domains spanning geochemistry, materials science, environmental engineering, and biomedicine. A comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms behind these processes is essential for designing and developing novel materials, as well as predicting and controlling mineral formation in both environmental and industrial contexts. For instance, unraveling the crystallization, aggregation, and dissolution of iron (oxyhydr)oxide minerals in natural environments is of enduring interest due to its impact on regulating global biogeochemical cycles of various elements such as C, O, N, and S. The fast-paced growth of this field brings forth a challenge: the need to establish a fundamental understanding of interactions among ions, molecules, complexes, clusters, and/or nanoparticles in a growth medium, and the resulting response dynamics. This session aims to address this challenge by highlighting contributions related to: 1) dynamic changes of nanomineral reactivity throughout nucleation, crystal growth, aggregation, and dissolution; 2) the influence of additives on mineral crystallization, aggregation, and dissolution; 3) computational modeling and simulation of mineral crystallization, aggregation, and dissolution; 4) in-situ observation of mineral crystallization, aggregation, and dissolution; 5) crystallization pathways in biomineralization; and 6) thermodynamic and kinetic parameters controlling mineral formation, alteration, and dissolution.

Recent developments in experimental and modeling techniques have had a huge impact on geoscience research. High flux neutron and X-ray sources enable in-situ observations of nonequilibrium processes such as phase transformations on flat surfaces and in complex porous matrices. Large scale molecular simulations and highly resolved pore scale simulations give us an unprecedented ability to quantitatively test hypotheses regarding processes at the mineral-water interface. However, the connection between experiments and simulations remains an important challenge for geoscientists. In part, this is due to the large range scales associated with these processes and the heterogeneity of geomaterials. This session focuses on how the data from experimental and modeling studies can be successfully utilized for testing hypothesis and validating theories. In particular, how experimental observations can validate modeling techniques, indicate novel unconsidered phenomena, and help to understand complex chemical mechanisms occurring on mineral surfaces. We are specifically interested in contributions that incorporate modeling or experiments at the pore scale. Studies that use molecular-scale-derived understanding of mineral and liquid solution properties to fill the knowledge gaps in pore-scale studies are also encouraged. We welcome submissions that combine characterization, experimental, data processing, and modeling methods to explain mineral reactivity in CO2 storage and transformation, contaminant remediation, underground hydrogen storage, and other subsurface geochemical applications.

Carbon mineralization in reactive reservoirs (i.e. basalt, periodite) is being explored for permanently sequestering CO2 through mineralization. Commercial scale subsurface sequestration requires a Class VI well permit. Acquisitions of a Class VI permit requires reservoirs benchmarked and parameterized by field- and laboratory-derived data, enabling accurate predictions of the fate and transport of the injected CO2. This data includes temperature- and pressure-dependent kinetics of mineral dissolution, secondary mineral crystallization, and secondary mineral identity. Subsurface injection and mineralization of CO2 is additionally being explored as an aid in critical mineral release and recovery. This session is motivated by the need to assess the state of science in understanding the complex and key processes occurring at mineral-water interfaces within the applied context of carbon mineralization and critical mineral recovery. Contributions are invited that highlight the fundamental and applied geochemistry at the mineral-water interface as it relates to mineral dissolution, precipitation, carbon mineralization, and critical mineral recovery, as well as emerging experimental techniques to understand these processes. We encourage submissions that utilize bench scale experiments, molecular simulations, and reactive transport models.
