The world of nanomaterials is complex; there is dubiety as well

as unrealistic optimism about costs, practicality, timing for the

availability of, and the true capabilities of products featured in

the news. The progress of the industry is being affected from

the incertitude generated by the multitudinous names used,

coupled with lack of clarity and standardization in the definitions

for carbonaceous nanomaterials, such as graphene, graphene

oxide, nanographene, nanographene flakes, nanographite flakes,

graphene nanoribbons, single-layer graphene, few-layer graphene,

nanographite, nanotubes, nanofibers.

In this perspicuous book about the carbonaceous nanomaterial

domain, the author concisely covers nomenclature, characteristics,

applications, costs, and manufacturing; all with the cardinal goal

to offer the reader a reality check by delineating the steps to

commercialization. Along the way, he also examines the cost impact

of the touted applications and the boundaries of market adoption.

Through references and personal experience, the author makes

a compelling case for the market readiness of a mostly neglected

class of nanomaterials known as Graphitic Nanofibers.

Includes varied levels of technical focus and financial analyses to

appeal to a range of skills and interests.

  • Graphitic Nanofibers presents a technical and financial case for graphitic nanofibers, as materials that meet commercialization criteria today. Through personal experience and references, the author compares the functionality of graphitic nanofibers with the more hyped nanomaterials, and provides a comparitive reality check from a business perspective on the ease of manufacturing, cost and market adaptation.
  • Includes varied levels of technical focus and financial analyses to appeal to a range of skills and interests.
