Book Description

This book describes in a comprehensive manner latest studies conducted by various research groups worldwide focusing on carbon and related nanomaterials. Fourteen chapters of this book deal with a number of key research topics and applications of pure and functionalized carbon nanomaterials and their hybrid nanocomposites. Specifically, the authors have presented interdisciplinary investigations including: (i) carbon nanoparticles and layers synthesis, (ii) analytical aspects of carbon nanomaterials and their characterisation under different conditions as well as (iii) various applications of carbon nanoparticles. They have reported and summarised key applications of carbon particles or nanoobjects in pharmacy, biomedicine, agriculture and food industry, water treatment, physicochemical analysis, optoelectronics, electronic and magnetic materials for supercapacitors or radar adsorbing materials, tribology, chromatography, electrophoresis, bioanalysis, nanobiocatalysis, biofuels production as well as environmental remediation.

Pawel K. Zarzycki is a pharmacist by education. His research expertise is analytical chemistry combining separation science, supramolecular chemistry, signal processing and multivariate statistics. He has conducted several research projects in Poland, Australia and Japan focusing on steroids, cyclodextrins, fullerenes, hopanoids and spirulina. His research group is working on analysis of endocrine disrupters (EDCs) in surface water ecosystems and during wastewater processing. Most recently, he started the RoSSY (Research on Small Sailing Yacht) project enabling EDCs samples collection involving cellulose biopolymers and carbon derived nanomaterials via miniaturised extraction and microfluidic devices. Presently, he extended his research to civil engineering area concerning chemometric analysis and proposal of new materials that can be used as Lunar Soil Simulants and Mars Soil Simulants.
