Carbon Nanotubes and Related Materials: From Physico-Chemical Properties to Biological and Environmental Effects

Nanomaterials have specific properties mainly governed by quantum physics or surface effects, and significantly different from those of macroscopic objects. Emblematic nanomaterials are carbon nanotubes, which have generated a worldwide, and highly competitive, scientific research activity. The general aim of this conference is, thanks to its pluridisciplinary approach, to give the different actors of carbon nanotubes (CNT) research (physicists, chemists, biologists) the proper level of knowledge required to discuss with the other participants and understand each other correctly. The conference will therefore propose courses accessible to scientists of different fields, as well as more specialized courses in each domain of interest, including the most recent advances on the subject. The program will focus on four general topics: synthesis/characterization of CNT, CNT chemistry, health effects of CNT, and environmental effects of CNT
