Nanocarbons Division Robert C. Haddon Research Award

The Nanocarbons Division established this award in 2018 to encourage excellence in nanocarbons research. The award is intended to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the understanding and applications of carbon materials.

Nomination Period: March 15 – June 15, even years
Presented: Spring meeting, odd years

Recipient Qualifications

Only active members of The Electrochemical Society and the Nanocarbons Division are eligible for the award.

The recipient will have made outstanding contributions to basic or applied science involving the electronic structure and properties of molecules and materials. Particular emphasis is placed on chemical, optical, magnetic, transport, and device properties of organic conductors, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and related nanocarbon materials.

An unsuccessful nomination will automatically remain active for one additional award cycle, if eligibility remains.


The award consists of a scroll, a US $1,000 prize, and assistance up to a maximum of US $1,500 for registration and travel expenses to the meeting at which the award is to be presented.

About Robert C. Haddon

Professor Haddon has made a series of important contributions to the understanding and applications of conjugated organic molecules, fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene and their nanostructures. His work has led to landmark papers in the fields of conjugated organic molecules and carbon materials which have served as the starting point for many other advances in the area of nanocarbons.
