The Chemistry and Physics of Carbon series presents advances in carbon research and development and comprehensive reviews on the state of the science in all these areas. Building on the tradition of its highly acclaimed predecessors, Volume 28 of this series presents authoritative, interdisciplinary coverage of contemporary topics. With contributions by leading international experts and more than 1300 references, this indispensable volume discusses the structure of glassy carbon, carbon fibers, carbon black (soot), chars, spherulitic graphite in cast iron and naturally occurring forms of carbon; and structural similarities with fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and carbon nanoparticles.
1. Impact of the Discovery of Fullerenes on Carbon Science. 2. Molecular Models of Porous Carbons. 3. Adsorption of Water Vapor on Activated Carbon: A Brief. 4. Coal-Tar Pitch: Composition and Pyrolysis Behaviour
