Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are a part of the so-called B-C-N fabric method, together with novel nanostructures of carbon (C), doped-carbon, boron (B), boron nitride (BN), carbon nitride (CNx), boron-carbon nitride (BxCyNz), and boron carbide (BxCy). BNNTs and CNTs are structurally comparable and proportion impressive mechanical homes, yet they range in chemical, organic, optical, and electric homes. for that reason, hybrid nanotubes developed of B, C, N parts are anticipated to shape a brand new type of nanotubes with tunable homes among these of CNTs and BNNTs. furthermore, those B-C-N nanostructures will additional improve and supplement the purposes of CNTs and BNNTs. With contributions from major specialists, B-C-N Nanotubes and similar Nanostructures is the 1st e-book to hide all theoretical and experimental points of this rising fabric procedure, and meets the necessity for a accomplished precis of the large advances in examine on B-C-N fabrics in recent times.

Here's a significant publication that covers the foremost facets of nanomaterials construction. It integrates the various and sundry chemical, fabric and thermo-dynamical aspects of construction, delivering readers a brand new and special approach to the topic. The mechanical, optical, and magnetic features of nanomaterials also are offered intimately.
Written by means of a number one nanobiologist actively concerned on the leading edge of the sphere either as a researcher and an educator, this publication takes the reader from the basics of nanobiology to the main complex purposes.
This e-book remembers the fundamentals required for an knowing of the nanoworld (quantum physics, molecular biology, micro and nanoelectronics) and offers examples of purposes in quite a few fields: fabrics, strength, units, facts administration and existence sciences. it really is truly proven how the nanoworld is on the crossing element of data and innovation.

Although the attempts in growing for C3N4 were not succeeded, nanoscale CNx particles or films were found to be promising to be a hard material . Similar to the thin film studies, PECVD , plasma sputtering deposition , and chemical reaction  had been utilized to produce the CN nanoparticles. Apparently, nanoscale carbon nitride compounds appear to be the important area in the future, including the nitrogen-doped CNTs and nanostructures to be discussed in the chapters by Arenal and Loiseau, Yu and Wang, and Filho and Terrones of this book.
This interpretation is also identical to the out-of-plane bending mode of h-BN films [58, 59] with a small shift in wavenumber due to the strain developed on the tubular h-BN network in BNNTs. More interestingly, the authors observe a splitting of this R mode vibration at ~800 and ~815 cm−1, as highlighted in the inset of Fig. 6b. Tentatively, it is thought that the splitting of the radial buckling vibration is related to the complex interaction of buckling vibration at different h-BN sheets that have different diameters and chiralities.
