Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fullerene molecules have the unique closed morphologies that are totally composed of carbon atoms. They can include foreign atoms inside, and also can be attached with a variety of functional groups, which offers a great degree of freedom on their shape and properties. Hence, we can expect to produce a tremendous number of fullerene assemblies that will be useful for the application of energy, environment, biology, medicine, electronics, mechanics and so forth. Among these fullerene materials, the nanofibers made of fullerene molecules such as fullerene nanowhiskers and fullerene nanotubes are especially attractive, owing to their potential applicability for semiconductors, transistors, catalysts, sensors, molecular sieves, templates for chemical synthesis, illuminants, solar cells and so forth. The fullerene nanotubes defined here are the tubular nanofibers composed of fullerene molecules. In addition, single-crystal thin sheets made of fullerene molecules, “fullerene nanosheets”, will find a wide application as well. Hence, this special issue “Fullerene Chemistry” focuses on the synthesis, characterization and application of low-dimensional fullerene nanomaterials. Physical and chemical treatments of fullerene nanomaterials can also widen the fullerene world. Not only the fullerene nanomaterials but also carbon nanotubes and graphene are included in this special issue since they have close relationships with fullerene chemistry.

The researchers in fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene are strongly encouraged to submit their recent topics to this special issue. The related review papers are also welcome.
