Chemistry of Carbon Nanostructures aims to present the current state-of-the-art synthesis and application of carbon materials like nano diamonds, ribbons and graphene-like structures in science and engineering. Edited by Professor Klaus Müllen, who received the Adolf von Bayer Medal for his contribution to Carbon Chemistry, and Xinliang Feng, this book combines outstanding contributions by a renowned international team of experts.
The authors discuss chemical aspects of carbon nanostructures, their synthesis, functionalization and design strategies for defi ned applications. Recent advances in carbon nanomembranes, molecule-assisted ultrasound-induced liquid-phase exfoliation of graphene, and solution synthesis of graphene nanoribbons and biological application of nanodiamonds are highlighted topics.
This book provides an excellent reference on the chemistry of carbon nanostructures for Chemists, Materials Scientists, Condensed-matter Physicists, Surface Scientists, and Engineers.
Prof. Müllen was awarded the Adolf von Baeyer Medalin 2013 for his contribution to Carbon Chemistry.

"[...] this book is timely and most welcome. [...] the style is self-consistent, the illustrations are most of the time of very high quality, and the text is very clear and helpful. Most importantly, this is a book in which anyone will find something to learn, whether physicist, chemist, nanotechnologist, etc. [...] Any researcher deeply involved in the ‘graphene’ topic should, therefore, have it on his/her shelf. It thus appears that the present book is a musthave in the library of any specialist in nanotechnology and/or carbon scientist."
