The 6th International Conference “Novel Functional Carbon Nanomaterials” will highlight recent achievements and challenges in the synthesis, structural control and modeling at the meso- and nano-scales of the variety of low-dimensional carbon allotropes including nanodiamonds, diamond-like carbon, fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene and graphene-related structures, as well as high surface area carbon networks, which are promising for a range of emerging applications in energy conversion and storage, water purification, high-speed nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, photonics, quantum information processing, quantum computing, biosensing, drug delivery, medical imaging, thermal management, catalysis, lubrication, etc.
All aspects of new chemistry, science and technology of growth, functionalisation, characterisation, and electronic, optical, mechanical, thermal and biomedical applications will be covered. Of special interest will be the development of multifunctional and hierarchical architectures based on nanocarbons as building blocks and on integration technologies of carbon-based nanostructures with other inorganic or organic materials to realize micro/nanodevices encouraging novel viable approaches in interfacing materials science, engineering and biology.
