Carbon Nanotubes: Preparation, Characterization and Applications (#227)

This symposium will focus on the preparation, characterization, and application of carbon nanotubes. Papers are invited in the following areas: (1) New developments in methods for growth, separation, and chemical functionalization and processing; (2) Characterization by spectroscopic techniques such as Raman scattering, photoluminescence, Rayleigh scattering, as well as microscopic techniques such as electron and scanning probe microscopies; (3) Purification and structural separation of carbon nanotubes by density-gradient centrifugation, gel-chromatography, and other approaches; (4) Applications of carbon nanotubes in biology, medicine, electronics, solar energy harvesting, advanced materials, etc.
