#8 - 22a Carbon Nanotubes I: Synthesis (TF002)
This session focuses on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes and other carbon nanostructures. Papers discussing new synthesis methods or innovative improvements to existing methods are appropriate. New methods to increase purity and yield are relevant, including post-synthetic processing.
Chair:Daniel E. Resasco
CoChair:Michael S. Strano
