This book provides information on synthesis, properties, and applications of carbon nanomaterials. With novel materials, such as graphene (atomically flat carbon) or carbon onions (carbon nanospheres), the family of carbon nanomaterials is rapidly growing. This book provides a state-of-the-art overview and in-depth analysis of the most important carbon nanomaterials. Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field which ensures that both, a review on the subject along with emerging perspectives are provided to the reader.


"… represents a very comprehensive overview on various types of carbon nanomaterials and their different fields of applications … well-written and perfectly suitable for undergraduates and PhD students, experts in the fields, newcomers and industry."

—Magdalena Titirici, Queen Mary University of London
