Graphitic Carbon Materials, Chemistry and Physics of
June 17-22, 2012
Davidson College
Davidson, NC

Carbon materials play an extremely important role in our society. They not only constitute the largest supply of energy we use today (i.e., coal) but also are the bases of many important technologies ranging from pencils, adsorbents, and metal strengtheners, to batteries and many others. Recent studies on graphitic carbon, including fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, have further revealed novel optical and electrical properties, making it possible to use them for new applications in renewable energy as well as microelectronics. Moreover, there are many novel and exciting phenomena in these materials such as molecular magnetism, catalysis, many-body and relativistic quantum mechanics, etc.

Fundamental challenges associated with these materials have hindered our ability to understand and exploit them for various applications. These include precise structural control, characterization, and large-scale synthesis, which require the collective efforts of scientists in multiple disciplines to overcome. This conference will highlight the urgency for research on graphitic carbon materials and gather scientists in physics, chemistry, and engineering to tackle the challenges in this field. The conference will focus on scalable synthesis, characterization, novel physical and electronic properties, structure-properties relationship studies, and new applications of the carbon materials.
