International meeting
on the chemistry
of graphene and carbon nanotubes

Brussels, Belgium, April 3 - 7, 2016




In 2016, ChemOnTubes will move to Belgium!!

It will be organised at the Hotel Le Plaza in the city centre of Brussels from April 3 - 7, 2016.

This “chemistry – certified“ event will be the perfect place to share your latest results on chemistry at large on graphene, carbon nanotubes and other related nanoforms of carbon and hear about your colleagues' work in the area.

As usual, the conference will start on Sunday (April 3rd) afternoon and end on Thursday (April 7th) at noon, with two lively evening poster sessions.

Come share with us the excitement of chemistry of graphenic surfaces, be they cylindrical, flat, crumpled, rolled, conical, etc...

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Brussels on April 3rd, 2016 for the sixth international scientific meeting around the chemistry of graphene and carbon nanotubes.
