    "There’s plenty of room at the bottom" - Richard Feynman’s legendary sentence has practically teleported the world into the age of Nano-technology over the last couple of decades. As nano-materials started drawing extensive attention, the use of nano-technology has opened many possibilities for humans. Carbon based nano-materials are an example of such prominent class of materials, which have an enormous potential to fit a wide range of applications, ranging from the energy sector to aircraft and automotive sector to bio-medical sector, etc. The book Novel Applications of Carbon Based Nano-Materials summarizes state-of-the-art studies focusing on various applications of carbon allotropes, considering the energy and environmental benefits and the socio-economic impact of the developed systems, all at the same time.
