Advances in Graphene
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Graphene is an allotrope (form) of carbon consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. It is the basic structural element of many other allotropes of carbon, such as graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. Graphene has many unusual properties. It is the strongest material ever tested, efficiently conducts heat and electricity and is nearly transparent. Graphene shows a large and nonlinear diamagnetism, which is greater than that of graphite, and can be levitated by neodymium magnets.


In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about Graphene published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on chemistry, material science, kinetics, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in Graphene as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
