Carbon Nanotubes

Some of the first discovered and widely studied/publicized nanoscale materials are those of carbon allotropes. Prior to the advent of nanotechnology, three forms of carbon were known: graphite, diamond, and amorphous carbon. Now many other forms of carbon have been discovered that exhibit novel properties, including fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene (individual graphitic sheets). Chapter 3 provides a summary of materials, including their properties, synthesis, and applications.
