Description : 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. 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.
