Explore the Practical Applications and Promising Developments of Graphene

The Graphene Science Handbook is a six-volume set that describes graphene’s special structural, electrical, and chemical properties. The book considers how these properties can be used in different applications (including the development of batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, and supercapacitors based on graphene) and produced on a massive and global scale.

Volume One: Fabrication Methods

Volume Two: Nanostructure and Atomic Arrangement

Volume Three: Electrical and Optical Properties

Volume Four: Mechanical and Chemical Properties

Volume Five: Size-Dependent Properties

Volume Six: Applications and Industrialization

This handbook describes the fabrication methods of graphene; the nanostructure and atomic arrangement of graphene; graphene’s electrical and optical properties; the mechanical and chemical properties of graphene; the size effects in graphene, characterization, and applications based on size-affected properties; and the application and industrialization of graphene.

Volume six is dedicated to the application and industrialization of graphene and covers:

  • The design of graphene- and biomolecule-based nanosensors and nanodevices
  • The use of graphene-based field-effect-transistor (GFET)-like structures as sensing substrates and DNA aptamers as sensing elements
  • Recent advances in graphene-based DNA sensors
  • The antibacterial properties of graphene-based nanomaterial (NM)
  • The chemical and physical properties of graphene and its current uses
  • The development of sensitive and selective field-effect transistors (FET) biosensors based on graphene

"This is a very good and excellent book on graphene material which is not only useful for researchers but also for students… This hand book is devoted to different applications of graphene materials in different fields…"

—Dr. Noorunnisa Khanam Patan, Center for Advanced Materials, Qatar University

"Graphene Science Handbook: Applications and Industrialization is a comprehensive collection of the most recent advances on diverse areas of graphene science and development. The book has recognized editors and as such attracted high quality authors for chapters. The chapters have their own independent structures that allow the readers to read and use them as separate reference entities. … Most of the chapters have been well written and are easy to read and understand. I recommend this book as a good reference that covers both basic and advanced topics regarding graphene."

—Professor Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), Australia

"Many practical applications utilize not only graphene’s electronic properties and optical transparency but also its extremely high thermal conductivity, mechanical strength and flexibility, tunable electron density, excellent current-carrying capacity, and ultimate surface-to-volume ratio. The present volume provides a scope of applications in sensors and nanodevices that use one or several unique material characteristics of graphene."

—Dr. Alexander A. Balandin, University of California Presidential Chair Professor

"I am confident in the materials … The wide scope of information covered, and the qualifications of the contributors projects a positive image of the potential quality of the publication."

—Albert V. Tamashausky, Asbury Carbons Inc.

"This book is a result of an impressive project to collect views from experts in every aspect of graphene science. All popular topics in the research of this impressive material are covered. This is the best and most complete presentation that has been published so far for the hottest material of our times. A must-have reference."

—Ioannis Remediakis, Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete, Greece

"…this set of volumes represents a complete handbook showing the state of the art of science and technology related with graphene. This set of books is written by great specialists and competent experts. For someone who works in this field, this set of volumes is an essential reference for the characterization and application of graphene."
