Carbon is truly an "old but new material." In the past 30 years, industry has made major improvements in the properties of carbon used in "old" applications such as electrodes for arc furnaces and in countless filtering processes. "New" carbons such as synthetic diamonds and carbon-based fiber-reinforced plastics have also been developed. The Chemistry and Physics of Carbon series presents advances in carbon research and development and comprehensive reviews on the "state of the art." Volume 25 introduces methods for the preparation of carbyne and addresses theoretical issues...discusses carbyne properties, spectroscopy, and chemical and crystal structure...explains the use of x-ray and neutron scattering for the structural evaluation of carbonaceous materials...examines the function of carbon as both a catalyst and a catalyst support...analyzes the role of carbonaceous materials' surface properties in a wide variety of processes...and more. Complete with illustrations and extensive bibliographic citations of the latest literature, this series, interdisciplinary in approach, is essential reading for organic and physical chemists, solid state physicists, electrochemists, chemical engineers, and materials scientists.
