From a chemistry aspect, graphene is the extrapolated extreme of condensed polycyclic hydrocarbon molecules to infinite size. Here, the concept on aromaticity which organic chemists utilize is applicable. Interesting issues appearing between physics and chemistry are pronounced in nano-sized graphene (nanographene), as we recognize the importance of the shape of nanographene in understanding its electronic structure. In this book, the fundamental issues on the electronic, magnetic, and chemical properties of condensed polycyclic hyodrocarbon molecules, nanographene and graphene are comprehensively discussed.


"A balanced blend of theory and experimental work is presented in this interesting book. It has excellent technical depth, and up-to-date material and references (up to 2011). Graduates students in materials science, physics, or physical chemistry who want to understand graphene and related carbon-based low dimensional materials in terms of basic physics and chemistry, will find this book to be a very good choice. Professionals working in this area will also benefit from its comprehensive coverage of the subject matter."
