S7: 6th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials and Nanocomposites


ICACC'12

Preliminary Program – Symposium 7


This symposium will focus on science and engineering of nanostructured materials, with a strong focus on the elaboration of the practical side of nanotechnology. Special emphasis will be given to novel synthesis, functionalization, processing, and characterization of nanoparticles, nanowires and their heterostructures. Application of nanostructures in drug-delivery, catalysis, energy and sensing applications, nanocomposites in structural light weight materials, nansotructured coatings for photovoltaic, bio-medical and optical applications will form the major thrust areas. Contributions related to fabrication of nanomaterials-based products and challenges related to the large-scale production and integration of functional and structural nanomaterials will be given particular attention.
