One Line Description
Brings together innovative methodologies with R & D strategies to provide a detailed state-of-the-art overview of the processing, properties, and technology developments of graphene materials and their wide-ranging applications

Scientists and researchers in materials science, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, biomedical engineering who work on atom-thick and super-thin materials research; industrial scientists intending to harvest graphene-based technology employing state-of-the-art techniques; and PhD, master and undergraduate level courses on graphene materials processing, properties and applications.

Graphene materials constitute probably the most focused arena of materials research in the current decade because of their involvement with fundamental phenomena from the fields of physics,chemistry, biology, applied sciences and engineering. Graphene Materials: Fundamentals and Emerging Applications provides detailed and up-to-date overviews on the processing, properties, and technology developments of graphene materials including multifunctional graphene sheets, surface functionalization, covalent nanocomposites, reinforced nanoplatelets composites for a wide range of applications in the biosensing, energy storage, environmental monitoring, and health fields.
In particular, Graphene Materials: Fundamentals and Emerging Applications has chapters covering:
• Fabrication of graphene oxide and two dimensional materials
• Surface functionalization of graphene
• Functional three-dimensional graphene networks
• Covalent graphene-polymer nanocomposites
• Magnesium matrix composites reinforced with graphene nanoplatelets
• Graphene derivatives for energy storage
• Graphene nanocomposite for high performance supercapacitors
• Graphene nanocomposite-based bulk hetro-junction solar cells
• Graphene bimetallic nanocatalysts foam for energy storage and biosensing
• Graphene nanocomposites-based for electrochemical sensors
• Graphene electrodes for health and environmental monitoring
