Fabrication and Functionalization of Advanced Tubular Nanofibers and their Applications describes the synthesis, preparation, and characterization of carbon-based tubular nanofibers and their applications in environmental protection and new energy sources. Nanomaterial science is a relatively young and rapidly developing discipline that includes aspects of physics, chemistry, and biology and is finding applications in some of mankind’s greatest current challenges. This book explores novel strategies for the preparation of carbon tubular nanofibers and explains how they have been used to great effect in a range of applications, including energy and healthcare. Throughout, the author refers to the isothermal, thermodynamic, and kinetic processes at the heart of chemical systems important to the fabrication of nanomaterials. The processing-structure-property relationship in functional inorganic/organic materials is examined at the nano-level, explaining where interesting electronic, magnetic, optical, mechanical or catalytic and therapeutic properties come from. Covering everything from the basics to their use in practice, including the synthetic procedure and characterization, this book is the perfect guide for anyone interested in the design of nanomaterials for advanced applications.
