Synopsis

Carbon is a unique substance with many forms each one with the potential to enrich our lives. From its use in everyday objects such as tyres to the beauty of diamonds and the recently discovered graphene with its potential to revolutionize the electronics industry, carbon has a lot to offer. This one day meeting brings together an international group of scientists to talk about the various forms, their production and their application. 

This meeting provides an excellent opportunity for cross fertilization of ideas and knowledge from many fields with a strong interest in carbon science.

The Group's Annual General Meeting will also be held on the same day at 12.15 pm at the the British American Tobacco Group Research and Development centre.

Press registrants are welcome.
