Synthetic carbon allotropes such as fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene represent one of the most promising materials families with enormous potential for high-performance applications in the fields of nanoelectronics, optoelectonics, hydrogen storage, sensors and reinforcements of polymers based on their unprecedented electronic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties. At the same time they are ideal targets for investigating fundamental chemical and physical questions such as shape- and charge-dependent binding and release of molecules, charge transport in confined spaces and superior sensing of supramolecular interactions.
The 6th Erlangen Symposium on Synthetic Carbon Allotropes represents a platform where national and international experts present the recent developments in the field.
When: October 8 to October 10, 2023
Where: Hörsaal C1 im Chemikum, Nikolaus-Fiebiger-Str. 10, 91058 Erlangen
