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 Deadline: September 1, even years
Presented: Spring meeting, odd years

Recipient Qualifications

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. Only active ECS members are eligible for the award. An unsuccessful nomination will automatically remain active for one more cycle of consideration, 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.
