“Application of carbon nanostructures as new effective gas adsorbers is most interesting. This multi-author book represents a fine collection of reviews that cover practically all aspects of gas adsorbers based on new carbon nanostructures, including fullerenes, nanotubes, graphenes and nanodiamonds. The volume combines not only experimental but also theoretical studies (including computer simulation), and what’s more, the careful and detailed reviews describe the techniques used for measurement of gas adsorption. Special attention is given to hydrogen adsorption because of the important its role of hydrogen as a new green energy source. The critical and constructive analysis demonstrates real possibilities of carbon nanostructures for hydrogen storage. As a whole, I believe this collection will be a book for constant rereading by scientists and engineers interested in modern nanotechnology.”

The increasing interest in new technological solution for gas storage, requiring the development of novel solid state media, induced to benchmark carbon nanomaterials as one of the ongoing strategic research areas in science and technology. In such a context, research in adsorption of gases by carbon nanomaterials has experienced considerable growth in recent years, with increasing interest for practical applications. Many research groups are now producing or using such materials for gas adsorption, storage, purification, and sensing.
This book provides a selected overview of some of the most interesting scientific results regarding the outstanding properties of carbon nanomaterials for gas adsorption and of interest both for basic research and technological applications. Topics receiving special attention in this book include storage of H, purification of H, storage of rare gases, adsorption of organic vapors, gas trapping and separation, and metrology of gas adsorption.
