The forum will provide a platform for reviewing and discussing novel developments in
the field of carbon nanostructures and related materials as well as their applications.
Subjects included are:
• Nanotube synthesis and purification, large-scale production, quality-control
• Graphene and nanoribbons synthesis
• Mechanical properties, composite and hybrid materials
• Electronic and optical properties
