KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Nobel Laureate Sir Harold Kroto (1996 Chemistry) will deliver the Keynote Address on Monday morning, April 7, 2014.

Sir Harold Kroto has a long and distinguished career in chemistry. Today he is a professor at Florida State University where he carries out research in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The conference is designed for business executives, engineers, and scientists to gain essential and wide-ranging knowledge about the science, technology, and applications of nanomaterials.

The three-day Congress includes:

  • Special Workshop: Graphene/Carbon nanotubes: properties, manufacturing techniques, and applications.
  • A series of comprehensive lectures by international leaders from industry, academia, and national laboratories. The presentations will review the state-of-the art in the rapidly expanding science and technology of nanomaterials.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Workshop leaders:
Prof. Fengge Gao, Nottingham Trent University

Workshop topics

  1. Graphene - the basic building blocks for new carbons
    (The relationship between graphene and other carbon materials and historic evolution of carbon materials)
  2. Graphene derived micro/nano species suitable for composite application
    (Graphene, graphene oxide, graphite interacted compounds, expanded graphite)
  3. Graphene synthesis: various graphene synthesis techniques (including CVD, wet-chemistry etc.) will be discussed and reviewed in this section.
  4. Graphene characterization: an introduction of characterization of graphene and graphene derivatives.
  5. New properties from graphene.
