Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene are two representative nanomaterials comprised of purely element carbon [1,2]. Graphene is the two-dimensional, hexagonal sp2-carbon ring networks with one atomic layer thickness, while CNTs can be envisaged as one or several graphene sheets concentrically rolled up into a one-dimensional cylindrical structure, so-called singlewalled (SW) or multi-walled (MW) CNTs, respectively. Figure 12.1 shows the schematic diagram of structures of graphene, SWCNT and MWCNT. Owing to their exceptional mechanical, electrical, optical and thermal properties, CNTs and graphene have been widely considered as a new type of materials with great potentials to revolutionalize many of the biological and medical fields [3–5].

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
