Introduction

After three conferences (2006, 2008 and 2010) and an increasing number of participants, the 4th occurrence of ChemOnTubes will be held again in the unique setting of Arcachon Convention Center, in april 2012. In addition to carbon nanotubes, which were the focus of conferences of 2006 and 2008, graphene is now a major subject for carbon chemists and is undertaking a significant scientific development. Since 2010, ChemOnTubes has opened up to the chemistry of graphene, while retaining many presentations around nanotubes. Likewise, the sessions of the ChemOnTubes 2012 conference will also be entirely dedicated to the chemistry of carbon nanotubes and graphene.

As before, the conference will come alive around invited speakers, oral and poster sessions on the latest research in the field. The conference will last five days, from sunday april 1 at 2pm to thursday april 5 at 2pm. Two poster sessions, fundamental for the exchanges between participants, will be held on monday and tuesday evenings.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Arcachon on april 1, 2012 for the fourth international scientific meeting around the chemistry of nanotubes and graphene.
