About the book

This book “Carbon Nanotubes - Recent Advances, New Perspectives, and Potential Applications” contains several recent research on efficient growth, facile preparation, continuous improvements, significant developments, and potential applications on carbon nanotubes and their hybrid/modified materials, which dimension is less than 100nm. It is a promising novel carbon nanotubes booklet that attains huge interest last three decades. Here, it concludes with the exciting scientific reports on cutting-edge science & technology related to synthesis, characterization, morphological analysis, surface modification, control growth, functionalized with terminal modification, hybridization for self-assembly including potential materials, devices, chips, sensors, and biosensors applications. In this approach, it gives an inclusive review of the current progress of carbon nanotube research in this fast-moving field by scientists and researchers worldwide dynamically contributing to the advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. After a short outline and a brief introduction of carbon nanotubes and their hybrid materials, the preparation methods and significant growth mechanisms for carbon nanotube functional materials are extensively described in this booklet. It is followed by scientific reviews/chapters on carbon nanotubes and their hybrid materials on morphological evaluation, electronic properties, electrical characteristics, structural arrangement, elemental, optical, and mechanical properties, improved imaging, and their spectroscopies analyses, and other practical applications. It is an essential book for universities, research organizations, institutes, governmental sectors, research centers, post-graduates, academicians, graduates, academic libraries, & R&D sectors in current improvement and development research on carbon nanotubes, their functional/hybrid materials, and potential applications.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
