Thursday 19 Mar 2015: Chemistry of carbon nanotubes and graphene
Professor Karl S. Coleman - Director of Research, Department of Chemistry, Durham University
HAR/170 (3D Visualisation Suite) 14:00-15:30
In this seminar I will discuss the selective functionalisation of carbon nanotubes and new methods to synthesise graphene that are scalable and sustainable. I will then go on to talk about the use of graphene in polymer nano composites discussing the role of the nanofiller and the role of the polymer matrix.
