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: October 8, odd years
Presented: Spring meeting, even years

Recipient Qualifications

The recipient will have made outstanding achievement in, or scientific contribution to, the science of fullerenes, nanotubes and carbon nanostructures.  An unsuccessful nomination will automatically remain active for the following two years if there is remaining eligibility.


The award consists of a scroll, a $1,000 prize and assistance up to a maximum of $1,500 to facilitate meeting attendance 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.
