"Carbon nanotubes are now a mature subject after close to 20 years of active research in the field. This book, written by renowned experts, is a timely update of the subject that enlarges the reader's vision with discussions about other carbon materials such as fullerenes, nanohorns and other lesser known carbon species and about applications ranging from biogical aspects to quantum computing. Very interesting!"
Prof. Alain Pénicaud - Université Bordeaux 1, France
"The book combines together the most recent results of the relatively new but fast-growing field of carbon nanomaterials. It has a good balance of fundamental knowledge and applications ideas and presents different aspects of this multidisciplinary field in chapters written by experts in synthetic and computation chemistry, materials science, electronics, and biology. This book is a very important source of information especially for graduate students and young researchers entering the field of carbon nanomaterials."
Prof. Nikolai V. Tkachenko - Tampere University of Technology, Finland
This monograph offers an excellent overview on the lasted achievements concerning the carbon nanomaterials. It starts with a short preface by the editor, followed by nine seminal chapters clearly written by specializsd researchers from diverse horizons.
- Contemporary Physics
A promising class of carbon-based nanostructured materials, ranging from empty-caged fullerenes and endohedral metallofullerenes to carbon nanotubes and nanohorns, has led to an explosion of research associated with nanotechnology. The great potential of these materials for nanotechnology-associated applications has been widely recognized because of their exclusive structures and novel properties.
This book presents contributions by experts in the diverse fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, and medicine, providing a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge of this constantly expanding subject. It starts with the nomenclature and modeling of carbon nanomaterials, presents a variety of examples on surfaces and thin films of fullerenes, and gives an insight into the morphology and structure of carbon nanotubes and the characterization of peapod materials with the aid of transmission electron microscopy. Subsequently, it presents the electro-optical properties of and self-assembly and enrichment in carbon nanotubes, followed by strategies for the chemical functionalization of carbon nanohorns and endohedral metallofullerenes. Finally, the applications of endohedral metallofullerenes in quantum computing and of functionalized carbon nanotubes in medicine conclude this fascinating overview of the field.
