Materials scientists are currently facing the challenge of synthesising carbon nanostructures that can reproduce or even improve on the remarkable performance of fullerenes and nanotubes, but in a robust, three-dimensional structure. Recent advances in the assembling of clusters, manipulation and functionalisation, and the extension from pure graphite-like and diamond-like materials to mixed sp2/sp3 carbon-based materials with a controlled nanostructure are leading to an impressive array of advanced applications. This volume is an up-to-date account of progress in these areas, special attention being paid to the synthesis, structural and physical characterisation, theoretical simulation and technological applications of nanostructured carbon in its innumerable forms.
Readership: Graduate students, academic and industrial researchers in the field of nanophysics and related technologies.
