This book compiles all current information on the different types of functionalization of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene, both covalent and non-covalent. The book starts with a general overview of the synthesis, characterization and application of functionalized CNTs and graphene. Special attention is dedicated to the characterization of functionalized materials, a topic rarely addressed on the literature. The authors provide a comparison between the functionalization of these two types of carbon materials.
Offers a full review on non-covalent and covalent functionalization of carbon nanotubes and graphene
Covers the characterization of functionalized materials
Presents possible applications for functionalized CNTs and graphene materials
Includes supplementary material: sn.pub/extras
