Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene book cover

Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene

Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are the materials lying between fullerenes and graphite as a new member of carbon allotropes. The study of CNTs has gradually become more independent from that of fullerenes. As a novel carbon material, CNTs will be far more useful and important than fullerenes from a practical point of view, in that they will be directly related to an ample field of nanotechnology. This book presents a timely, second-generation monograph covering--as far as practical - the application of CNTs as the newest science of these materials. Most updated summaries for preparation, purification and structural characterization of single-walled and multi-walled CNTs are given. Similarly, the most recent developments in the theoretical treatments of electronic structures and vibrational structures are covered. The newest magnetic, optical and electrical solid-state properties providing a vital base to actual application technologies are described. Explosive research trends toward application of CNTs, including the prospect for large-scale synthesis, are also introduced. It is the most remarkable feature of this monograph that it devotes more than half of the volume to practical aspects and offers readers the newest developments of the science and technological aspects of CNTs.
