From Carbon-Rich Molecules to Carbon-Based Materials

22 Sep 2014 - 25 Sep 2014

El Jadida, Morocco


This conference has now passed. Join us in The Bahamas in 2018 for the 2nd series, view details here

This interdisciplinary conference will provide unique “fusion” opportunities for chemists, physicists and engineers having various backgrounds but sharing passion and interests in carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials. It will allow mixed groups of scientists from all over the globe to discuss the current challenges, needs and goals of this quickly-evolving interdisciplinary field. The major focus areas will range from new designed methods of chemical synthesis, characterization, and structure determination of carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials to measurements of their functional properties and investigations into their potential breadth of practical applications as new materials. The list of carbon rich-molecules includes (but is not limited to) π-bowls and π-baskets, carbon nanohoops, nanobelts and short segments of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphene nanoribbons, and full-length nanotubes. This forum is designed to promote excellence in research and education and to facilitate the interchange of new information among a broad community of scientists.
