British Carbon Group


The British Carbon Group (joint with the IOP and SCI) is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.

The Group promotes the science or technology of graphite and carbon materials. This includes diamond and fullerenes, composites, fibres, deposits and any other relevant carbon science topics in the UK. By providing a forum for scientific discussion we represent the interests of UK carbon scientists in relation to learned societies worldwide. 

Awards and Bursaries

The Brian Kelly Award and a number of bursaries are offered by the Group.
