ABSTRACT

Carbon nanotubes, with their extraordinary engineering properties, have garnered much attention in the past 10 years. Because of the broad range of potential applications, the scientific community is more motivated than ever to move beyond basic properties and explore the real issues associated with carbon nanotube-based applications. Presenting up-to-date literature that presents the current state of the science, this book, Engineered Carbon Nanotubes and Nanofibrous Material: Integrating Theory and Technique, fully explores the development phase of carbon nanotube-based applications. It looks at carbon nanotubes and their applications in diverse areas of science and engineering and considers environmental engineering applications as well.

This volume is a valuable resource for engineers, scientists, researchers, and professionals in a wide range of disciplines whose focus remains on the power and promise of carbon nanotubes.
