Carbon Materials and Carbon Allotropes
A section of C (ISSN 2311-5629).
The Carbon Materials and Carbon Allotropes section of C is dedicated to the publication of original research and development studies on all fundamental and applied aspects of the synthesis/processing, structure/composition and properties of carbon materials including all forms of graphite, diamond, and all carbon nanostructures including fullerenes, graphene, nanobuds, and nanotubes and their related structures such as ribbons or yarns. Papers on other carbon forms such as glassy carbon, nanofoams, and other less common structures of carbon synthesized or obtained by first-principles calculations or modeling are also welcome. Applications in sensors, electrochemistry, energy storage and conversion, catalysis, electronics, health, biologicics and medicine, the environment and sustainable development, scale-up of industrial processes, and composite materials are also of interest.
