About Roger Taylor

Roger Taylor (1935 – 2006), was an Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the University of Sussex where he published 350 scientific papers and six books and made a significant contribution to the high international reputation of chemistry at Sussex. Prof. Taylor was the winner of the RSC Josef Loschmidt prize in 2002. With the discovery of C60 and the other fullerenes, he was known for research related to the preparation and characterization of novel derivatives of fullerenes, especially those having fluorine, hydrogen, alkyl and aryl group addends; and time and again producing novel structures such as the holey fullerenes, saturnene, triumphene, functionalized dimers and the fullerene trannulenes.

The British Carbon Group (registered charity 207890) is affiliated to The Royal Society of Chemistry, The Institute of Physics and The Society of Chemical Industry.
