The NSF-sponsored workshop on Future Directions in Solid State Chemistry was held to address the interfaces in the fields where there would be significant opportunity for the development of new scientific advancements through increased interaction. The seven topic areas ranged from those with established ties to solid state chemistry such as Earth and planetary sciences, and energy storage and conversion, to those such as condensed matter physics, where the connections are in their infancy, to biology, where the opportunities for connections are largely unexplored. Exciting ties to materials chemistry were explored in discussions on molecular materials and nanoscale science, and a session on the importance of improving the ties between solid state chemists and experts in characterization at national experimental facilities was included.
