Chemistry of Nanocarbons Hardback
Edited by Takeshi Akasaka, Fred Wudl, Shigeru Nagase
During the last decade, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes haveattracted special interest as new nanocarbons with novelproperties. Because of their hollow caged structure, they can beused as containers for atoms and molecules, and nanotubes can beused as miniature test-tubes.
Chemistry of Nanocarbons presents the most up-to-dateresearch on chemical aspects of nanometer-sized forms of carbon, with emphasis on fullerenes, nanotubes and nanohorns.
All modernchemical aspects are mentioned, including noncovalent interactions, supramolecular assembly, dendrimers, nanocomposites, chirality, nanodevices, host-guest interactions, endohedral fullerenes, magnetic resonance imaging, nanodiamond particles and graphene.
Thebook covers experimental and theoretical aspects of nanocarbons, aswell as their uses and potential applications, ranging frommolecular electronics to biology and medicine.
