This title features 11 new chapters unique to this edition, including chapters on grain boundaries in graphene, 2D metal carbides and carbonitrides, mechanics of carbon nanotubes and nanomaterials, biomedical applications, oxidation and purification of carbon nanostructures, sintering of nanoceramics, hydrothermal processing, nanofibers, and nanomaterials safety. It offers a comprehensive approach with a focus on inorganic and carbon-based nanomaterials, including fundamentals, applications, synthesis, and characterization. This book also provides a unique angle from the nanomaterial point of view on application, synthesis, and characterization not found in any other nanomaterials book on the market.


"The Nanotechnology Handbook provides valuable introductions to many important topics, as well as the more detailed information needed to begin advanced research. Professors Yury Gogotsi and Volker Presser should be congratulated on their choice of topics and authors, which makes this volume so useful."

—Ray H. Baughman, University of Texas at Dallas, USA

"…a true tour de force on carbon based materials. Anyone searching for information on carbon nanomaterials will be extremely unfortunate if they do not find a detailed description/reference to it within these pages. Although a text that is clearly aimed at the expert, and possibly the expert researcher at that, it is accessible to graduate physicists and materials scientists and could well provide an extremely well-informed introduction to the field to the new graduate student. The Editor has done a tremendous job of choosing a well-informed group of experts, who pass on knowledge in a confident and articulate manner."

—John F. Watts, University of Surrey, United Kingdom
