Carbon Nanomaterials for Gas Adsorption

by Maria Terranova, Silvia Orlanducci and Marco Rossi

“Application of carbon nanostructures as new effective gas adsorbers is most interesting. This multi-author book represents a fine collection of reviews that cover practically all aspects of gas adsorbers based on new carbon nanostructures, including fullerenes, nanotubes, graphenes and nanodiamonds. The volume combines not only experimental but also theoretical studies (including computer simulation), and what’s more, the careful and detailed reviews describe the techniques used for measurement of gas adsorption. Special attention is given to hydrogen adsorption because of the important its role of hydrogen as a new green energy source. The critical and constructive analysis demonstrates real possibilities of carbon nanostructures for hydrogen storage. As a whole, I believe this collection will be a book for constant rereading by scientists and engineers interested in modern nanotechnology.”
