Carbon Nanomaterials and Related Nanostructures: Synthesis, Characterization and Application

Description

Carbon is capable of forming many allotropes and exhibits a rich structural diversity from zero-dimensional fullerene, one-dimensional carbon nanotubes, to three-dimensional graphite and diamond. Since the discovery of fullerene in 1985, carbon nanomaterials and nanotechnology research has advanced rapidly in the past decades. There have been a variety of carbon nanomaterials, including fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, carbon fibers, nanodiamond, amorphous carbon films, nanoporous carbon, and more recently graphene. Different physical forms of carbon nanomaterials offer a variety of structures, which have endowed carbon nanomaterials with various superior properties such as high chemical inertness, biocompatibility, high mechanical strength, high electrical and thermal conductivities, and huge specific surface area. Due to these unique physical and chemical properties, carbon nanomaterials have wide ranges of versatile applications in mechanical engineering, energy, environment, biomedicine, and other fields.

This special issue will cover a wide range of interdisciplinary and current research progress on carbon nanomaterials and nanotechnology. We invite researchers to contribute original research and review articles that will focus on synthesis, characterization, and applications of carbon nanomaterials and related nanostructures. We are particularly interested in articles describing novel fabrication methods, interesting physical and chemical properties, and new insight into the applications of carbon nanomaterials and nanostructures. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis and application of traditional carbon materials: graphite, diamond, amorphous carbon films, carbon fibers, and so forth
  • Synthesis and structure of new carbon nanomaterials: fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, nanoribbons, nanoporous carbon, graphene, and so forth
  • Doping, modification, functionalization, hybrid, and composite of carbon nanomaterials
  • Mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical, and surface properties of carbon nanomaterials
  • Applications in protective coatings, energy storage and conversion, solar cells, lithium-ion batteries, super capacitors, water purification, catalyst carrier, biosensors, and so forth
  • Multiscale designing, modeling, and theoretical calculations of material properties
  • Other carbon-related nanostructures
