Carbon Nano Forms and Applications

by: Maheshwar Sharon, Madhuri Sharon


Abstract: An in-depth look at the unique properties and potential applications of carbon nano materials Beginning with a description of various forms of carbon nano materials (CNM), this book addresses the need to develop a new classification of carbon. After the fundamental physics are discussed, CNM synthesis and applications are covered. Special emphasis is given to fuel cell, supercapacitor, hydorogen storage, microwave absorption, electron field emission, and biosystems applications. Carbon Nano Forms and Applications is an essential resource for material engineers, chemists, and physicists whose research focuses on carbon nano materials, including carbon nanotubes, carbon nanoantennas, and carbon nanowires. The book is also beneficial for those researchers using carbon material for next-generation technologies, such as quantum computing, solar cell, and nanomedicine.
