Carbon-based nanomaterials have become important due to their unique combinations of chemical and physical properties (i.e., thermal and electrical conductivity, high mechanical strength, and optical properties), extensive research efforts are being made for various industrial applications.Carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene and mesoporous carbon structures constitute a new class of carbon nanomaterials with properties and offer a number of opportunities for high technology applications. The electrical properties resulting from the sp2-bonded structure of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene are particularly promising material.
Fullerenes are spherical, caged molecules with carbon atoms located at the corner of a polyhedral structure consisting of pentagons and hexagons. The best known and most stable fullerene is C60 which is commonly referred to as buckyball or buckminister fullerene. Fullerenes exhibit rich photochemistry and act as an electron shuttle in photochemical solar cells. They also play an important role in improving the performance of organic photovoltaic cells.
Carbon nanotubes are made of seamless cylinders of hexagonal carbon networks and are synthesized as single-wall (SWCNT) or multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT). CNTs can be highly conducting. Their conductivity has been shown to be a function of their chirality (degree of twist), as well as their diameter. CNTs can be either metallic or semi-conducting in their electrical behavior.The carbon atoms of a single (graphene) sheet of graphite form a planar honeycomb lattice, in which each atom is connected via a strong chemical bond to three neighboring atoms. Because of these strong bonds, the basal-plane elastic modulus of carbon is one of the largest of any known material.For this reason, CNTs are expected to be the ultimate high-strength fibers. SWNTs are stiffer than steel, and are very resistant to damage from physical forces. CNTs represent a very small, high aspect ratio conductive additive for plastics of all types. Their high aspect ratio means that a lower loading (concentration) of CNTs is needed copared to other conductive additives to achieve the same electrical conductivity. This low loading preserves more of the polymer resins’ toughness, especially at low temperatures, as well as maintaining other key performance properties of the matrix resin. CNTs have proven to be an excellent additive to impart electrical conductivity in plastics. Their high aspect ratio (about 1000:1) imparts electrical conductivity at lower loadings, compared to conventional additive materials such as carbon black, chopped carbon fiber, or stainless steel fiber.
Graphene is the two-dimensional sp2-bonded allotrope of carbon equivalent to a single layer of graphite with high charge carrier mobility, superlative thermal and chemical stability and intrinsic flexibility. Unique electrical and electronic properties, a wide electrochemical stability window, and high surface area have prompted many researchers to employ fullerenes,CNT and graphene derivatives.Graphene oxide is a single-layer sheet of graphite oxide, that attracted great interest for its a potential. The electronic properties of graphene oxide mainly depend on the oxidation level and chemical composition; it can be tailored by removal or addition of certain oxygen groups to adjust the proportion of sp2 and sp3 carbon.
