ABSTRACT An overview of the various carbon structures with characteristic sizes in the nanoscale region is presented, with special attention devoted to the structures and properties of ‘nanodiamond’ and carbon nanotubes. The term ‘nanodiamond’ is used broadly for a variety of diamond-based materials at the nanoscale ranging from single diamond clusters to bulk nanocrystalline films. Only selected properties of carbon nanotubes are discussed, with an aim to summarize the most recent discoveries… 

Classic Carbon Nanostructures

The era of carbon-based nanotechnology, as it is well-known, started from 1985 when the fullerene C60 was discovered. The rediscovery of carbon nanotubes and unexpected discovery of graphene gave a

A review on application of carbon nanostructures as nanofiller in corrosion-resistant organic coatings

Since corrosion has tremendous economic effects, academics and industries have sought to develop more effective coatings. These efforts have led to profound importance of nanocomposite coatings based

The carbon-based materials (CbMs) refer to a class of substances in which the carbon atoms can assume different hybridization states (sp1, sp2, sp3) leading to different allotropic structures -. In

Realization of diamond nucleation within the multi-walled carbon nanotubes matrix upon electron irradiation

Individual multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were exposed to the electron beam of 200 kV energy and high resolution transmission electron micrographs were recorded at several time intervals.

This book is a review of the science and technology of the element carbon and its allotropes: graphite, diamond and the fullerenes. This field has expanded greatly in the last three decades

Molecular electronics: Momentous period for nanotubes

Physicists have now directly confirmed unusual electron behaviour in carbon nanotubes that can develop exotic properties when conductors are reduced to molecular dimensions.

Synthesis of Linear Acetylenic Carbon: The "sp" Carbon Allotrope

In the presence of end capping groups, laser-based synthetic techniques similar to those normally used to generate fullerenes, produce thermally stable acetylenic carbon species capped with trifluoromethyl or nitrile groups with chain lengths in excess of 300 carbon atoms.
