Pacifichem Symposium #135

Carbon Nanotubes and Nano-Carbon Materials: Preparation, Characterization, and Applications

Updated: December 16, 2010

Symposium #135 at Pacifichem 2010 in the Topic Area of Materials & Nanotechnology

December 15-20, 2010
Hawaii, USA.

Organized by: Shigeo Maruyama (The University of Tokyo), R. Bruce Weisman (Rice University), Jie Liu (Duke University), Young Hee Lee (Sungkyunkwan University)

This symposium will focus on the preparation, characterization, and application of carbon nanotubes and related nano-carbon materials such as fullerenes and graphene. Papers are invited in the following areas: (1) New developments in methods for growth, dispersion, and chemical functionalization and processing; (2) Characterization by spectroscopic techniques such as Raman scattering, photoluminescence, Rayleigh scattering, as well as microscopic techniques such as electron and scanning probe microscopies; (3) Purification and structural separation of nano-carbon materials by density-gradient centrifugation, chromatography, dielectrophoresis, and chemical approaches; (4) Applications of nano-carbon materials in biology, medicine, electronics, solar energy harvesting, advanced materials, etc.
