Carbon Materials

Professor Sobhy was unable to give his lecture, ‘The Influence of Science Technology and photography on Art’. Professor Dore, from the University of Kent, instead presented a lecture entitled ‘Carbon Materials: The Next revolution in Materials Science’. He described the history of the uses of carbon and explained the discovery of C60, carbon nanotubes and graphene sheets, together with the techniques used to determine their atomic structures and physical and chemical structures.
