Pulsed Neutrons for Materials Discovery This talk provides an overview of the merits & strengths of neutron-scattering techniques for materials discovery [1], as illustrated by the current research programme of the _Molecular Spectroscopy Group_ at the _ISIS Pulsed Neutron & Muon Source,_ Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom [2,3]. With the novice in mind, I will explain & illustrate with recent examples the uniqueness of pulsed neutrons to explore a broad & growing range of structural & dynamical phenomena in novel functional materials, with an emphasis on energy applications & sustainability. I will also highlight existing & emerging synergies with computational materials modelling, as well as recent & ongoing developments for _in-situ_ and _operando_ neutron science under realistic conditions of industrial relevance.
