Insight - Carbon Materials publishes original research papers devoted to the physics, chemistry and technology of the organic substances that are precursors for producing aromatically or tetrahedrally bonded carbonaceous solids, and of the materials that may be produced from those organic precursors. These materials range from diamond and graphite through chars, semicokes, mesophase substances, carbons, carbon fibers, carbynes, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes, etc. Papers on the secondary production of new carbon and composite materials (for instance, carbon-carbon composites) from the above mentioned various carbons are also within the scope of the journal. Papers on organic substances will be considered only if the research has close relation to the resulting carbon materials.


Call for Papers for the Special Issue: Insight - Carbon Materials


Among all elements in the Periodic Table Carbon 12C6 is most important one because of its tetravalent bond forming capacity and availability in varied forms like amorphous(coal), graphite (extremely soft, hexagonally bonded) &Diamond ( extremely hard. tetrahedrally bonded). Carbon materials have diverse use from day to day life as fuel to industries irrespective of whether they are small scale or large, even we cannot thing of living body without the use of carbon materials like amino acid, proteins etc. As porous carbon materials, mesoporous carbon materials, catalyst in chemical reactions, absorption material in industries, use in energy storage system, in making super capacitor & nano structure carbon materials they are of great importance. Also electric applications of carbon materials and use of nitrogen doped carbon materials are, in any way, not less important. Aim of this special issue is to cover all these areas in the frontier of fundamental research and review in the field as guide both for researchers and industry.
