Carbon Nanotubes and Related Structures: New Materials for the Twenty-First Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carbon nanotubes are molecular-scale carbon fibers with structures related to those of the fullerenes. Since their discovery in 1991, they have captured the imagination of physicists, chemists and materials scientists alike. This book covers all the most important areas of nanotube research, as well as discussing related structures such as carbon nanoparticles and "inorganic fullerenes." It is the first single-author book on the subject and will be of interest to chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and engineers working on carbon materials and fullerenes in both academia and industry.

Synopsis:

First single-authored book on carbon nanotubes, one of the most exciting areas in materials chemistry.

Description:

Carbon nanotubes consist of tiny cylinders of graphite, closed at each end with caps which contain precisely six pentagonal rings. Since their discovery in 1991, physicists, chemists, and materials scientists have been interested in nanotubes because of their electronic properties, potential as nanotest-tubes, and incredible stiffness. Attempting to cover all the important areas of nanotube research, author Peter Harris considers the various methods for synthesizing nanotubes, including catalytically produced and single-walled tubes, and summarizes current thinking on growth mechanisms. Theoretical approaches to observation, methods of opening and filling nanotubes, electronic properties, and nanotube structures are discussed. Later chapters cover inorganic analogues of fullerenes and nanotubes, look at spheroidal forms of carbon, and consider future directions in which nanotube science might develop.

About the Author

Peter Harris was brought up in Gloucestershire and read chemistry at Birmingham University. He went on to study for a doctorate at Oxford University, where his project involved transmission electron microscopy of catalytic materials. Since that time his research has focused on the application of various forms of microscopy to problems in solid-state chemistry, and materials science. He has carried out post-doctoral work at both Cambridge and Oxford, and currently works in the Chemistry Department at Reading University, where he is responsible for electron microscopy. In addition to his work on carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles, he is involved in a wide range of projects for departments across the University. He has published over 40 scientific papers, and regularly reviews books for materials and microscopy journals. He lives in Twyford, outside Reading, with his wife and two daughters.
