Graphene Workshop

Dates: October 21, 2013
Location: San Diego, California

Special Workshop: Graphene/Carbon nanotubes: properties, manufacturing techniques, and applications

Time: October 21, 2013

Venue: Crowne Plaza, San Diego

Workshop leaders:
Prof. Yu Zhu, The University of Akron
Prof. Fengge Gao, Nottingham Trent University

Workshop topics:

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

The workshop is free to all attendees of the conference “Nanomaterials for Industry
