Prof. Yury Gogotsi At The Annual World Conference on Carbon, July 24-29, 2011 And His Visit to SARI
Prof. Yury Gogotsi presented with his collegues their common work at the CARBON 2011, keynote presentation in Carbon for Energy Storage and Conversion:
Flexible Carbon Nano-Felt Derived from Electrospun TiC Nanofibers and Its Superior Electrochemical Properties. Lifeng Zhang, Volker Presser, Jun Jie Niu, John McDonough, Hao Fong,*, and Yury Gogotsi (ID: 1043)
The Annual World Conference on Carbon, which is held in the American, Asian, and European continents alternately since 2000, is a unique chance for the academic and industrial people involved in the science and technology of carbon materials and relative fields to assemble and discuss their current research.
East China University of Science and Technology, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, and Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, co-host the Carbon2011 under the guidance the Asian Association of Carbon Groups.
With the rapid development of carbon science and technology, carbon materials play an important role in our daily life. Carbon is old, but it is new. With discoveries of fullerene in 1985, carbon nanotube in 1991 and graphene in 2004, carbon always attracts much attention. “Nice Carbon, Nice Life” is the theme for Carbon2011 and will become a forever theme.
Carbon exhibits electronic and structural versatility, extreme properties and abundance, having become more and more indispensable in our modern society. Advances in nanocarbons continue to deeply improve understanding of the fundamentals of carbon materials and reveal exciting new applications. More details about CARBON 2011
On July 26, 2011 professor Yury Gogotsi also visited the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI), a brand new and gigantic institute of the Chinese Academy of Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Prof. ZHU Zhiyuan, Executive Vice President of CAS Shanghai Branch and Prof. JIANG Biao, Vice President of SARI, received Prof. Gogotsi and held a meeting with him.
