Catalysts for Nanocarbon Growth

Presented by MRS Bulletin
November 22, 2017 | 12:00-1:30 p.m. (ET)

Sponsored by

The November 2017 MRS Bulletin reviews the genesis and development of nanocarbons over the last 50 years, including the role of catalysts in their formation. The issue also focuses on the formation mechanisms and controlled growth of carbon nanotubes and graphene on substrates through catalytic processes.  The talks in this webinar expanded upon the articles in the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees were able to interact—in real time—with the webinar presenters.
