The study of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and related carbon nanostructured materials is international and multidisciplinary. Fullerenes are all-carbon molecules that have attracted attention in the form of about 2500 publications since 1990. The most recognized fullerene is C60, but various molecules exist, such as C70, C76, C84, and C102. Research on fullerenes has led to discoveries of other novel forms of carbon, such as carbon nanotubes, which may find uses in remarkably strong fiber-reinforced composites; and supergiant fullerenes, also termed carbon nanopolyhedra, which have an internal cavity large enough to encapsulate materials 1 to 50 nm in size. In 1993, the Fullerenes Division was formed after the large success and interest in the "Fullerenes: Chemistry, Physics, and New Directions" series of symposia held since 1990. In 2013, the Division changed its name to Nanocarbons Division to more accurately reflect the direction on the divisionís Technical Interest Areas. The purpose of the Division is : (1) to advance the research, publication, science, and technology of Nanocarbons and related materials by providing an international forum for the exchange of scientific and technical information and developments; (2) to foster interaction between all related elements to further the science and technology of Nanocarbons and related materials; (3) to encourage participation by scientists and technologists from all countries in symposia sponsored and co-sponsored by the Division and in the other activities of the Division; (4) to encourage education, training, and research in fields of interest to the Division; (5) to represent the interests and to enhance the advancement of the members of the Division within the Society; and (6) to advance the purpose of the Society.
