Track 1: Graphene and other 2D materials
Graphene is the first 2D material to be isolated. Graphene and other two-dimensional materials have a long list of unique properties which have made them a hot topic for intense scientific research and the development of technological applications. These also have huge potential on their right or in combination with graphene. The extraordinary physical properties of Graphene and other 2D materials is that they all can enhance the existing technologies and also create a range of new applications simultaneously. Pure Graphene has an exceptionally wide range of mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Graphene can also greatly improve the thermal conductivity of a material by improving its heat dissipation property. In applications which require very high electrical conductivity, Graphene can either be used alone or as an additive with some other materials. Even at very low concentrations Graphene can greatly enhance the flow of electrical charge in a material. Graphene’s ability to store electrical energy at very high densities is exceptional. This attribute, added to its ability to rapidly charge and discharge, makes it ideal for energy storage applications.

Track 2: Novel Hybrid carbon materials
Large molecular building blocks required for hybrid materials, such as large inorganic clusters, may be of the nanometre length scale. The term hybrid material is more often used if the inorganic units are formed in situ by molecular precursors, for example applying sol–gel reactions. The biggest distinction between a Nano composite and a hybrid is that a hybrid material possesses a property that does not exist in either of the parent components. Graphene and single-walled carbon nanotubes are carbon materials that exhibit excellent electrical conductivities and large specific surface areas. An effective, economic way of using carbon fiber is to combine it with resin and another material, either a fiber or a metal, to produce a hybrid structure.

Carbon is an extraordinary element because of its ability to covalently bond with different orbital hybridizations. This leads to a rich variety of molecular structures that constitute the field of organic chemistry. For millennia, there were only two known substances of pure carbon atoms: graphite and diamond. The discovery of nanometre dimensional C60, and related fullerene-structures (C70, C84), spawned the field of Nano carbon research. The next major advance in carbon research was the discovery of carbon nanotubes (CNTs).The traditional electrochemical applications for carbon in solid electrode structures for the chlor-alkali industry as well as in aluminium refining are giving way to more diverse applications requiring high-surface-area carbon i.e., capacitor, fuel cells, metal/air batteries and high-energy lithium batteries. In all of these applications carbon has the desirable combination of acceptable electrical conductivity, chemical/electrochemical compatibility with the surrounding environment, and availability in the appropriate structure for fabrication into electrodes. In addition, the low cost of carbon relative to other electronic conductors is an important advantage for its widespread use in electrodes, particularly in electrochemical systems that must compete with existing technologies. Diamond electrodes are particularly attractive for electrochemistry. Because of its extraordinary chemical stability; diamond is a perspective electrode material to be used in electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering.

Track 9: Carbon Materials in Energy
Carbon materials touch every aspect of our daily life in some way or the other. Regarding todays environmental challenges carbon may be the key elemental component, usually blended into notations such as “carbon cycle” or “carbon footprint”. Interestingly, not being used as “fossil fuel”, carbon materials also considerably contribute to the field of sustainable energy. They are central to most electrochemical energy-related applications, i.e. they also help to generate, store, transport and save energy. Nanostructured carbon is already used in fuel cells, conventional batteries and super capacitors. Electric double layer capacitors (EDLC, also called super capacitors) are energy storage devices based on the electrical adsorption of ions at the electrode/electrolyte interface (non-Faradaic process). Porous carbons are being used widely as electrode materials for super capacitors because of their higher specific surface area and relatively good electrical conductivity.

Track 10: Nano Carbon Materials
Nano carbons are among the most promising materials developed in the past years. Nano carbon materials include fullerenes, carbon nanotubes (CNT), carbon nanofibers (CNF), nanodiamond, onions and various hybrid forms and 3D structures based on this structural principle. Nano carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes (CNT's) and Graphene have many extraordinary properties, such as a factor of 1000 times higher mobility and 10 times larger saturation velocity than Si. Several years ago these materials were available in milligram-scale quantities. Now many of them are produced in tonnes each year.

Track 11: Applications of carbon nanotubes
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are cylinders of one or more layers of Graphene (lattice). Diameters of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are typically 0.8 to 2 nm and 5 to 20 nm, respectively, although MWNT diameters can exceed 100 nm. CNT lengths range from less than 100 nm to 0.5 m. Individual CNT walls can be of metallic or semiconducting component depending on the orientation of the lattice with respect to the tube axis, which is called chirality. Carbon nanotube production exceeds several thousand tons per year, and are used for applications in energy storage, automotive parts, boat hulls, sporting goods, water filters, thin-film electronics, coatings, actuators and electromagnetic shields, health care and environmental protection.

Graphene-enhanced lithium ion batteries could be used in higher energy usage applications now, like in smartphones, laptops and tablet PCs. Graphene has a great potential of being used at a low cost, flexible and highly efficient photovoltaic devices due to its excellent electron-transport properties and carrier mobility. Single or multi-layered Graphene, with less agglomeration, exhibit a higher effective surface area and better properties. In hydrogen storage, hydrogen plays an important role as energy carriers. As a fuel of choice, it is light weight, contains high energy density and emits no-harmful chemical by-products, therefore hydrogen is considered as a green energy. Graphene oxide has excellent characteristics as a nanomaterial for drug delivery. Using the fluorescence super-quenching ability of graphene, novel fluorescence resonance energy transfer biosensors could be developed. Cancer therapy is made by exploration of graphene in drug delivery by in vitro tests. For clinical cancer and other disease treatment, in vivo behaviour of graphene loaded with drugs is observed to be implemented.

Importance & Scope:
Carbon materials (nanodiamond, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and graphene) are one of the most fascinating platforms in the fields of nanomedicine. In their biomedical applications, surface chemical functionalization of carbon materials plays an important role.
Diamond materials and related substances already hold an important position concerning surface coatings and electronic devices. In this case, the development producing ever smaller and more efficient components will continue. Diamond might once completely replace silicon for being more stable and biocompatible than the latter, and it may be possible to establish electronic devices even at the phase boundary to living systems. A nanostructuring of diamond surfaces as well as the directed doping or chemical functionalization will multiply the potential utilization of diamond in both everyday applications and the high-tech segment.
Most of the industrial carbon and graphite materials are synthesized form carbonaceous precursors. But also natural graphite is an important raw material. The majority of natural graphite is still consumed for refractory applications. However its use as anode material in lithium-ion batteries is fundamental for electro-mobility.
Many physical properties of graphite are not yet sufficiently used. Better use and new, huge fields of application can be generated with Nano forms of the element carbon. This comprises fullerenes, single- and multiwall nanotubes, Graphene and other Nano forms. Most promising fields of application are in electronics, sensor technology, medical and also mechanical applications.
