Physical and Chemical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are rolled up graphene sheets with a quasi-one-dimensional structure of nanometer-scale diameter. In these last twenty years, carbon nanotubes have attracted much attention from physicists, chemists, material scientists, and electronic device engineers because of their excellent structural, electronic, optical, chemical and mechanical properties. Carbon nanotube research, especially that aiming at industrial applications, is becoming more important. This book covers recent research topics regarding the physical, structural, chemical and electric properties on carbon nanotubes. All chapters were written by researchers who are active on the front lines. The chapters in this book will be helpful to many students, engineers and researchers working in the field of carbon nanotubes.
