The Philosophy of Carbon: Meso-Entropy Materials

Abstract

In the past decades, the materials field has been developing widely and at a high speed, especially for carbon materials. The most popular carbon-rich materials include fullerene, carbon nanotube, graphene, graphite, diamond, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Although studies appear to be exhaustive, the relationship between these materials remains unclear. Even for one of them, the understanding at chemistry level is still at the stage of hybridization difference. In this article, we propose a new method, the meso-entropy concept, to re-understand carbon materials and forecast new carbon-rich materials with new properties.
