Young Carbon Researchers Networking Day
On Tuesday 18th June, we hosted the annual meeting of the British Carbon Group (a special interest group of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Physics, and the Society of Chemical Industry) at the NGI.
The purpose of this year's meeting was to provide a networking opportunity for young researchers working with various allotropes of carbon, with a variety of research demonstrated through oral and poster presentations.
The prizes for best oral presentation were awarded to work in reclaiming waste phosphorus using functionalised char, and growing vertically aligned graphene nanosheets using microwave CVD. The prizes for best poster were awarded to another work on vertically aligned CVD graphene, and bio-inspired graphene based composites.
Thank you to CDT students Michael Greaves, Katie Lewthwaite, and Solen Monteil who volunteered to help, and special thanks also to Kelly Chen.
