"Carbon Alloys" is a very ambitious project and some considerable advances have been made. As the same materials were studied in several laboratories by different techniques the reports are particularly valuable. The book is recommended.
Professor Peter A. Thrower, Editor-in-Chief, CARBON,
In this remarkable book the results of a major innovative Japanese national programme on new forms and applications of carbon are presented. Carbon is a unique material and the research results here take the subject forward in many new directions. Carbon alloys are defined as carbon in multi-component systems the components having carbon in different states of hybridisation or in relationship with other compounds. The studies range from carbon nanotubes and the exploitation of nanospace to carbon-carbon composites and super-hard materials. It will be required reading for all involved in carbon science and Materials scientists generally.
