2nd From Carbon-Rich Molecules to Carbon-Based Materials Conference

7 June 2018 14:00 - 10 June 2018 12:00, Nassau, Bahamas



This interdisciplinary conference will provide unique “fusion” opportunities for chemists, physicists and engineers having various backgrounds but sharing passion and interests in carbon-only or carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials. It will allow a diverse group of scientists from all over the globe to discuss the current challenges, needs and prospects of this quickly-evolving multidisciplinary field.

The major focus areas will range from newly designed methods of chemical synthesis, characterization, and structure determination of carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials to measurements of their functional properties and investigations into their potential practical applications. The types of carbon-rich molecules include (but are not limited to) π-bowls and π-baskets, carbon nanohoops, nanobelts and short segments of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphene nanoribbons, and full-length nanotubes. This forum is designed to promote excellence in research and education and to facilitate the interchange of new information among a broad community of scientists.

Organised by
Fusion Conferences is a scientific conference organiser. We specialise in meetings within the academic and corporate industry for those working at the forefront of physical, medical, life sciences and their related technologies.

Why does a Fusion conference stand out from other scientific meetings? Our meetings attract an exclusive audience of 60-80 participants who have a narrow concentration within a specialised field. We create a platform for informal, workshop style forums delivering a more intense scientific experience unlike other larger style conferences.

Our conferences bring together a 'Fusion' of distinguished leaders, young investigators, scientific ideas, unpublished research, new collaborations and global representation.

Our conference venues are of a very high standard, located in culturally rich areas allowing delegates to explore and socialise outside of the conference, adding to the unforgettable experience of a Fusion conference.
