An In-Depth Look at the Outstanding Properties 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 four is dedicated to the mechanical and chemical properties of graphene and covers:
"This book [summarizes] the state-of-art knowledge of the structure-property relationship of graphene, as well as relevant applications they lead to. The first three chapters provide a multi-scale description of mechanical properties of graphene, from the role of defects at atomic scale, the effective models capturing micro-structural features, to the macroscopic performance. Details of theoretical models and experimental techniques are explained in detail, and Literature data are collected in tables with references listed, which are easy to follow up and thus informative for students and researchers on this topic."

"So far, books on graphene covered mainly its electronic properties and applications, and other aspects were relatively overlooked. This book (or volume) deals with those relatively untouched aspects of graphene research like mechanical and chemical properties and applications, which is, I judge, actually very important because the first generation commercial products of graphene are composites for structure and energy storage devices. It contains in-depth details of theoretical and experimental studies. Because of the comprehensive coverage of those fields, I believe that it will be useful for those who want to obtain fundamental knowledge as students or novices and those who are considering practical applications as professionals."
—Changgu Lee, Mechanical Engineering, Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, Korea
"… truly a valuable resource for any researcher trying to unlock the many potential applications this miracle material may offer."
—Amro Satti, Leitat Technological Center, Barcelona, Spain
"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."
