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

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Golden Gate 7 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
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.
