Advanced carbon materials: electrochemical aspects

This symposium is about electrochemical aspects of advanced carbon materials (e.g., diamond, CNTs, graphene, carbon dots, and derived carbon composites, etc), ranging from their electrochemical synthesis, properties, and applications (e.g., sensing, energy storage and conversion, electrocatalysts, electrosynthesis, etc).


Advanced carbon materials covered in this symposium include novel carbon films (e.g., conductive diamond, fullerenes, DLC, CNTs, graphene, etc.), carbon nanoparticles (e.g. diamond nanoparticles, carbon dots, carbon powders, graphene dots, etc.) and micro-fabricated and CVD grown carbon structures (e.g., carbon foam, diamond nanowires, porous diamond, carbon nanofibers, etc.) as well as carbon nanocomposites (e.g., diamond/SiC nanocomposite films, carbon nitrite, etc.). The topics of this symposium will consist of mainly electrochemical aspects of these advanced carbon materials, starting from their electrochemical synthesis, characterization and property investigations. The production of various carbon nanostructures or carbon composites will be included. Of particular focus will be the applications of these advanced carbon materials as the electrodes for electrochemical/biochemical sensing, as the metal-free catalysts for electrocatalytic reactions, as well as for electrochemical energy storage and conversion, electrosynthesis, and environmental degradation. In vivo and in vitro electrochemical sensing with novel carbons, electrocatalytic reactions (e.g., hydrogen evolution reaction, oxygen reduction reaction, CO2 reduction reactions) using advanced carbon materials, organic synthesis using diamond electrodes, photoelectrochemical degradation of environmental pollutants, the construction of supercapacitors and batteries using various bulk/nanostructured/porous carbon nanomaterials will be hot topics of this symposium. The fabrication, characterization, and application of advanced carbon material based electrochemical devices and setups (e.g., all-diamond electrode arrays, etc.), the novel sensing platform for single molecular detection (e.g., graphene nanopore sequencing, etc.) will be also highlighted.
