Book description

Carbon nanotubes represent one of the most exciting research areas in modern science. These molecular-scale carbon tubes are the stiffest and strongest fibres known, with remarkable electronic properties, and potential applications in a wide range of fields. Carbon Nanotube Science is a concise, accessible book, presenting the basic knowledge that graduates and researchers need to know. Based on the successful Carbon Nanotubes and Related Structures, this book focuses solely on carbon nanotubes, covering the major advances made in recent years in this rapidly developing field. Chapters focus on electronic properties, chemical and bimolecular functionalisation, nanotube composites and nanotube-based probes and sensors. The book begins with a comprehensive discussion of synthesis, purification and processing methods. With its comprehensive coverage of this active research field, this book will appeal to researchers in a broad range of disciplines, including nanotechnology, engineering, materials science and physics.

Reviews

Review of the hardback:'With its extensive coverage of nanotube synthesis, structure, properties and applications, this book will appeal to students and researchers in engineering and sciences. … [it] offers an introduction to the topics in carbon nanotubes rather than [an] exhaustive review. … this brevity and simplicity makes the book accessible to non-specialists and useful for classroom teaching.'

Review of the hardback:'You will hardly find a more comprehensive reference on the science of carbon nanotubes. Written by Peter Harris, 12 individual chapters incorporate the most recent technological advances and research developments on an exceptionally timely topic. This new book is an appropriate addition to its predecessor Carbon Nanotubes and Related Structures.... Personally, I would recommend this book to chemical physicists and physical chemists, and to those broadly interested in nanoscience.'
