A timely second edition reference unitizing the science and engineering of carbon allotropes CNT and Graphene. Updated summaries for preparation, purification and structural characterisation of single walled CNT and multi walled CNT alongside are given. 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 are reviewed, providing a vital base to application technologies. Current applications of both materials, including the prospect for large-scale synthesis of graphene, are also introduced.

Key Features

  • Updated discussion of properties, structure, and morphology of biological and flexible electronic applications aids fundamental knowledge discovery
  • Innovative parallel focus on nanotubes and graphene enables you to learn from the successes and failures of, respectively, mature and emergent partner research disciplines
  • High-quality figures and tables on physical and mathematical applications expertly summarize key information – essential if you need quick, critically relevant data
