In this symposium, we will provide a place to present the research on carbon-based nanomaterials. In addition to fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, the target substances are nanocarbon materials with new forms based on these (carbon nanowalls, graphene, graphene oxide, diamonds, diamond-like carbon, marimocarbon, carbon quantum dots, etc.). The purpose of this symposium is to provide a meaningful forum for experimental and theoretical research results on synthesis, physical properties and applications. We look forward to presenting research results at the forefront of nanocarbon material researches, such as the diversity of structures and dimensions peculiar to carbon-based materials, porosity represented by activated carbon, responsiveness to light and pressure, and catalytic activity. Regarding synthesis, in addition to conventional methods, environmentally friendly synthesis such as effective utilization of biomass, biomolecule compatible materials, fuel cells, electric double layer capacitors, solar cells, LEDs, biosensors, etc., from electronic devices to medical applications We also welcome a wide range of applied research utilizing new nanocarbon materials.
