Advances in carbon nanomaterials : science and applications by Nikos Tagmatarchis

By Nikos Tagmatarchis

This publication 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 using transmission electron microscopy. It additionally offers electro-optical houses and self-assembly and enrichment in carbon nanotubes, by way of suggestions 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 review of the field.

Superplastic forming of advanced metallic materials: Methods and Applications (Woodhead Publishing in Materials)

Extremely fine-grained metals can exhibit unparalleled ductility, often called superplasticity, in the course of sheet forming. the better ductility of superplastic metals makes it attainable to shape huge and intricate elements in one operation with no joints or rivets. the result's much less waste, reduce weight and production expenditures, excessive precision and shortage of residual pressure linked to welding.

Fatigue of Materials and Structures: Application to Damage and Design

The layout of mechanical buildings with more suitable and predictable sturdiness can't be completed with no thorough knowing of the mechanisms of fatigue harm and extra particularly the relationships among the microstructure of fabrics and their fatigue homes. Written by means of major specialists within the box, this publication (which is complementary to Fatigue of fabrics and constructions: program to wreck and layout, additionally edited by means of Claude Bathias and Andre Pineau), presents an authoritative, finished and unified remedy of the mechanics and micromechanisms of fatigue in metals, polymers and composites.

Single-Molecule Electronics: An Introduction to Synthesis, Measurement and Theory

This e-book provides a multidisciplinary method of single-molecule electronics. It encompasses a entire assessment of the sphere, from the synthesis and layout of molecular applicants to the regularly occurring experimental innovations, complemented by way of a close theoretical description. This all-inclusive technique presents the reader with the much-needed point of view to completely comprehend the far-reaching ramifications of single-molecule electronics.

Bioactive Glasses - Fundamentals, Technology and Applications

The worldwide growing old society has considerably elevated the necessity for implant fabrics, which not just change broken or misplaced tissue yet also are capable of regenerate it. the sector of bioactive glasses has been increasing regularly over contemporary years as they've been proven to bond with not easy and tender tissue, free up therapeutically energetic ions, and manage to improving bone formation and regeneration.

(a) Atomistic model of a spherical carbon onion, C60 @C240 @C560 . 187 While metal-filled onions are of interest for their electromagnetic response,188 the primary interest in carbon onions is for tribiological applications. The onion’s spherical shape means they should serve as useful low-friction lubricants, while the multilayer structure makes them mechanically more robust than simple single-layer fullerenes.

16 Other Molecular Forms As well as the fullerenes, once hydrogen termination is included there are a vast range of other carbon molecular forms. There are books devoted to the structure and properties of fused polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons,224 small “graphene-like” platelets of finite size, beginning with benzene (C6 H6 ). We mention here only some special cases due to unusual topologies, and only discuss those for whom an experimental synthetic route has been devised; there are many more theoretically proposed structures in the literature.
