Description

The Carbon Nanomaterials Sourcebook contains extensive, interdisciplinary coverage of carbon nanomaterials, encompassing the full scope of the field—from physics, chemistry, and materials science to molecular biology, engineering, and medicine—in two comprehensive volumes.

Written in a tutorial style, this first volume of the sourcebook:

  • Focuses on graphene, fullerenes, nanotubes, and nanodiamonds
  • Describes the fundamental properties, growth mechanisms, and processing of each nanomaterial discussed
  • Explores functionalization for electronic, energy, biomedical, and environmental applications
  • Showcases materials with exceptional properties, synthesis methods, large-scale production techniques, and application prospects
  • Provides the tools necessary for understanding current and future technology developments, including important equations, tables, and graphs

Each chapter is dedicated to a different type of carbon nanomaterial and addresses three main areas: formation, properties, and applications. This setup allows for quick and easy search, making the Carbon Nanomaterials Sourcebook: Graphene, Fullerenes, Nanotubes, and Nanodiamonds, Volume I a must-have reference for scientists and engineers.

About the Editor

Klaus D. Sattler, Ph.D., has been a professor of physics at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu for 27+ years. He has conducted atomic cluster research at the University of Konstanz, Germany; served as a Heisenberg fellow at the University of California, Berkeley; and studied the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nanoparticles in hydrocarbon flames in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich. His current work focuses on novel nanomaterials and solar photocatalysis with nanoparticles for the purification of water. He is the editor of Fundamentals of Picoscience (CRC Press, 2014) and the seven-volume Handbook of Nanophysics (CRC Press, 2011). Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Sattler was awarded the German Physical Society’s prestigious Walter Schottky Prize in 1983.
