About this book

Chemically-modified carbon nanotubes (CNTs) exhibit a wide range of physical and chemical properties which makes them an attractive starting material for the preparation of super-strong and highly-conductive fibres and films. Much information is available across the primary literature, making it difficult to obtain an overall picture of the state-of-the-art. This volume brings together some of the leading researchers in the field from across the globe to present the potential these materials have, not only in developing and characterising novel materials but also the devices which can be fabricated from them. Topics featured in the book include Raman characterisation, industrial polymer materials, actuators and sensors and polymer reinforcement, with chapters prepared by highly-cited authors from across the globe. A valuable handbook for any academic or industrial laboratory, this book will appeal to newcomers to the field and established researchers alike.

Author information

Dr. Dimitrios Tasis has previously worked for more than in the prestigious group of Prof. Maurizio Prato in the field of chemical functionalisation of graphitic allotropes (2002-2004). During the last seven years he is teaching as Lecturer and Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science, University of Patras, Greece. His research interests include the chemistry of graphitic allotropes for the fabrication of multifunctional polymer composites. He is the co-author of 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals, conference proceedings and book chapters. He has participated in 50 national/international conferences and delivered 10 invited lectures.
