247 Synthesis of Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes: Kinetics, Mechanisms and Reactor Design

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 8:30 AM
311 (Convention Center )
This session focuses on the synthesis of graphene, 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 and reduction.
