The development of graphene-related nanomaterials and nanocomposite has shown their immense utility in the areas of science, engineering, and technology. These materials include graphene derivatives, graphene-supported inorganic nanomaterials and films, graphene-metal decorated nanostructures, core–shell structures of nanocarbon-graphene, and graphene-doped polymer hybrid nanocomposites. They have been prepared by various methods like chemical vapor deposition, exfoliation of graphite, chemical reduction of GO, silver mirror reaction, catalysis, in situ hydroxylation, and sono sol–gel route. The attractive properties of graphene-based nanomaterials and nanocomposites have made them ideal templates and useful as functional materials in electronics, optics, and energy-based products like solar cells, fuel cells, Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors, ion exchange, and molecular adsorption. This book provides an overview of the recent advances in graphene and related nanomaterials, graphite nanomaterials, and nanocomposites, including their preparation, functionalization, properties, and potential applications. It presents novel approaches for the preparation of graphene nanomaterials from graphite, which will boost both product- and process-oriented industrial research.
- Book contains methodology (various methods which can be useful in research laboratory) for preparations of Graphene based hybrid materials. This book can be user friendly and easily adopted for first year under graduate, post graduate students and course work for research scholar students.
- This book also gives idea about how resulting hybrid and nanocomposites materials are used to fabricate devices and for applications in areas such as biomedical sector, energy sector, electronic sector and sensing as well as metal detection.
- This book will also helpful to academicians (research scholars, professors, scientists) to study in deep (properties of Graphene’s related nanomaterials, nanocomposites, nanohybrids.
- In each chapters, figures and diagrams are illustrated and also references to each chapters are separately given.
