Chapter Two

Review of Carbonaceous Nanomaterials and Graphite

Abstract

This chapter describes the qualities of graphitc materials. Natural graphite, graphene, graphitic nanofibers, carbon nanotubes and graphene oxide are discussed in detail. Along the way, the characteristics common to all three are pointed out and suggestions for substitution of graphene, nanotubes and graphene oxide with graphitic nanofibers for many of the investigated applications are offered
