An international conference; NanoteC18, was held at the university of Sussex, UK from 29th August to 1st September 2018. Ms Yuri Tanuma; a master candidate of the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary New Science, won a prize for best poster presentation. She was one of three winners during the four day conference.
Y. Tanuma, T. Uchida and T. Maekawa, Isolation and characterisation of FeCl-fullerene complexes, NanoteC18, University of Sussex (2018), Brighton, UK.
The purpose of her study is to synthesise smallest magnetic nano particles intercalating magnetic molecules such as FeCl and FeClH into C60 molecules. She successfully synthesised FeClHC60 particles by arc discharge, which attracted quite a few participants’ attention. The present nano particles may well be actively utilised in the fields of nano electronics and nano biotechnology.
Lady Margaret Kroto, who was specially invited to the conference celebrating its 20th anniversary, awarded the prize to Ms Yuri Tanuma at the ceremony.

What is NanoteC18? (from the conference website)
As one of the longest running series of international nanoscale carbon conferences in Europe (since 1998), NanoteC has brought together the world's leading thinkers in fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene and related two-dimensional materials. While each of these materials attracts its own dedicated community of researchers, NanoteC draws on common themes and allows researchers to share insight into this unique element at the nanoscale.
For its 20th anniversary, NanoteC18 is returning to the University of Sussex and will be dedicated to the late Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Harry Kroto FRS, co-discoverer of fullerenes.
