5th PBAST 2009, Singapore

The Pacific Basin Conference on Adsorption Science and Technology is held once in every three years. The past events were held in Japan (1997), Australia (2000), Korea (2003) and China (2006).

The next congress, PBAST 5, will take place from May 25 - 27, 2009 in Singapore. The event is jointly organized by the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS).

The key objective of the PBAST 5 is to provide opportunities for academics, researchers and industrialists, particularly from the Asia Pacific region, to interact, exchange ideas, discuss current developments and chart possible collaborations. Through these close interactions, it is aimed to bring the participants up to date with latest technological trends in adsorption science and related areas. The conference also aims at providing opportunity for students to meet leading academics and to motivate them to pursue research in adsorption.
