Advances in carbon nanomaterials : science and applications by Nikos Tagmatarchis

By Nikos Tagmatarchis

This e-book covers the nomenclature and modeling of carbon nanomaterials, contains examples of surfaces and skinny movies of fullerenes, and examines the morphology and constitution of carbon nanotubes and the characterization of peapod fabrics by using transmission electron microscopy. It additionally offers electro-optical houses and self-assembly and enrichment in carbon nanotubes, by way of concepts for the chemical functionalization of carbon nanohorns and endohedral metallofullerenes. eventually, the purposes of endohedral metallofullerenes in quantum computing and of functionalized carbon nanotubes in drugs finish this attention-grabbing assessment of the field.

Micro and nanocoils are also synthesized by CVD in the presence of a catalyst. 125 Their formation has been explained by nonuniform growth rates of the tube from the catalyst particle,124 which is consistent with the presence of impurities within the catalyst. There is a relationship between the coil pitch and the coil diameter. Coiled nanotubes are grouped in what is called “stability islands”121 (with pitch of either ∼30 nm or 50–70 nm, diameters 30–50 nm). These stable groupings suggest that the helical shape has an intrinsic structural origin imposed by the atomic structure.

In a TEM), as a series of stacked angled lines similar to the arrangement of bones down the back of a fish such as a herring. 1 The Structure of Herringbone Nanotubes and Nanofibers Topologically there are two fundamental structural types of herringbone (see Fig. 15). In the first of these, herringbone nanotubes can be viewed as a stack of nanocones (for this reason they have also been named stacked-cups and stacked-cones). As for nanocones, the cone angle is restricted to specific angles (see Fig.

In addition, nanoscrolls present a continuous, easily accessible, connected interlayer space, in contrast with the individual interwall spacing in MWCNTs. 76 The reactivity of nanoscrolls is increased compared to equivalent MWCNTs due to the presence of edges. 5 Carbon Nanocones A carbon nanocone (CNC), also referred to as a nanohorn, is a conical object constructed from tri-coordinated carbon atoms. Nanocones can be classified by the number of layers as single (SWNC), double (DWNC), triple (TWNC), or few layers CNCs.
