British Zeolite Association

The British Zeolite Association promotes zeolite and ordered nanoporous materials science in the UK. It does this through its annual research conference, which brings academic and industrial scientists together to discuss the latest developments in the field, as well as by its support for research students, its summer research bursaries for under-graduate students and other educational programmes and the Founders' Award, an annual prize for the best PhD student working in the area of micro- or mesoporous science and the Barrer Award, which is awarded every three years for the meritorious recent pure or applied work in the field of porous inorganic materials.

Annual meeting of the British Zeolite Association 11 - 12 April 2019

The 42nd annual meeting of the British Zeolite Association will take place at the University of Birmingham. More information to follow soon.

These pages provide an overview of the various activities of the BZA, together with news and information on upcoming events, general information about zeolites and some useful links.




And the winner of the 2018 Founders' Award is Giulia Bignami, University of St Andrews

Congratulations! Giulia has made significant contribuitons to the isotopic enrichment of important inorganic and inorganic-organic hybrid materials, thereby enabling quantitative and in situ analysis of structure and processes through sophisticated high-resolution solid-state NMR techniques. Giulia will receive her award and will give a lecture at this year's BZA Annual Meeting in Ambleside.
