Introduction

Carbon is one of the most investigated material in the history of nanoscience and is mainly responsible for the current nanotechnology boom. The field of technology is very progressing at an exponential rate, with a wide variety of research articles and book chapters appearing in scholarly literature every year.

Introduction to Carbon Nanomaterials presents information on new technologies based on the application of carbon nanotubes and the methods used to prepare carbon nanotubes are also discussed in detail.

  1. - Emphasizes the mechanisms used in developing and synthesizing carbon nanotubes.
  2. - Explains the unique electrical, optical, mechanical, thermal and vibrational properties of carbon nanotubes with changes in these properties due to structural differences.
  3. - Provides information about applications of enhanced carbon nanotube structures with bibliographic references
  4. - Highlights the significance of carbon nanotubes in delivering a wide variety of molecular payloads including drugs, small organic molecules, oligonucleotides, proteins, siRNA, vaccines and nutrients.
  5. -Explains the effects of carbon nanotubes on biological processes such as cell viability, proliferation, reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, genotoxicity, extracellular matrix remodelling/tissue remodeling, mutagenicity and toxicology

Introduction to Carbon Nanomaterials is a useful resource for novice nanotechnology researchers, undergraduates and post-graduate students who are interested to pursue a career in carbon nanomaterials research.

Preface

The proposed book focuses on the new technologies that are to introduce carbon nanotubes and the methods used to prepare carbon nanotubes are also discussed in detail. This field is very progressing at exponential rate, with a wide variety of research articles and book chapters appearing in the literature every year. This book can be a great resource for budding nanotechnology researchers, undergraduates and post-graduates students who are interested to peruse science, and a career in carbon nanomaterials research. It is one of the most investigative material in the history of nanoscience and mainly responsible for current nanotechnology boom. This book also emphasizes the mechanism proposed for the development of carbon nanotubes. This book is also focused on the unique electrical, optical, mechanical, thermal and vibrational properties of carbon nanotubes. This book also discusses the property changes observed in CNTs due to their structural differences as in single walled and multiwalled CNTs. This book also discusses the methods for synthesis of such unique nano-composite structures. The various aspects of how and where these structures can be applied with enhanced properties are also discussed with evidences from published literatures. This book highlights the significance of CNTs as carrier for delivering wide variety of payloads including drugs, small organic molecules, oligonucleotides, proteins, siRNA, vaccines and nutrients. This book also emphasizes on effects of CNT on cell viability, proliferation, reactive oxygen species (ROS) producing ability, genotoxicity, extra cellular matrix remodelling/tissue remodelling and mutagenicity. Finally it is mentioned about the toxicological considerations of CNT and discusses different ways of minimizing the toxicity.
