Cutting-edge coverage of carbon nanoscale science

This definitive volume offers an in-depth look at the unique properties and potential applications of carbon nanomaterials (CNM). Beginning with a description of various CNM types, Carbon Nanoforms and Applications addresses the need to develop a new classification of carbon. After discussing the fundamental physics, the book covers techniques for CNM synthesis and characterization. This authoritative resource then provides comprehensive information on the physico-chemical and biosystems applications of CNMs.

Carbon Nanoforms and Applications covers:

  • Theoretical aspects of CNM
  • Synthesis and characterization of CNM
  • Electron field emission
  • Fuel cells
  • Electric double-layer capacitors
  • Hydrogen storage
  • Lithium-ion batteries
  • Carbon solar cells
  • Microwave absorption
  • Carbon nanosensors
  • Biosystems
  • Cancer treatment
  • Nano-enabled drug delivery
  • Antimicrobial properties
  • Tissue fabrication
  • Neurogenesis
  • Food and cosmetics
