Overview

This book is a status report on the synthesis, properties, and applications of new carbonaceous materials. These materials are called pi-electron materials since they have extended pi-electron clouds in the solid state. They include carbon, nanotubes, fullerenes, and graphite. The major topics are the synthesis of graphite and carbon nanotubes at low temperatures, intercalation compounds of carbon nanotubes exhibiting universal conductance fluctuation, and technological applications of carbon materials in semiconductor physics, chemistry, and biology. The special properties of pi-electron materials give rise to the development of novel functional devices. This book is written for materials researchers, physicists, and research engineers involved in the development of these new carbon-based devices.
