Guide through the Nanocarbon Jungle:
Buckyballs, Nanotubes, Graphene, and Beyond
This practical guide provides an orientation in the nanocarbon
terminology jungle. It explains in simple language why not all carbon
nanotubes are metallic, relates bucky bamboo to multi-wall nanotubes and
onions to fullerenes, and answers whether graphene pseudospin is related
to magnetism (it is not). Simple formulas to estimate size, energy and
spectroscopic data of carbon nanostructures as well as linked primary key
literature citations come handy to researchers. The simple glossary format
with over 300 entries, over 100 figures and over 2000 cross-references
helps to quickly identify (in contrast to a web search) relevant information
for most topics related to nanocarbons. The compendium is rounded off
with tables including the time lines of fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene,
illustrating the growing interest in the field of carbon nanostructures.
linked to each entry, is a dynamically growing resource containing
multi-media material, additional references and links.
