The journal Carbon
is an international multidisciplinary forum for communicating scientific advances in the field of carbon materials and carbon nanomaterials. The journal reports significant new findings related to the formation, structure, properties, behaviors, and technological applications of carbons, which are a broad class of ordered or disordered solid phases composed primarily of elemental carbon. These materials can be either synthetic or of natural origin, and include, but are not limited to, graphene and graphene-oxide, carbon nanotubes, carbon fibers and filaments, graphite, porous carbons, pyrolytic carbon, glassy carbon, carbon black, diamond and diamond-like carbon, fullerenes, and chars. Papers on composites will be considered if the carbon component is a major focus of the paper's scientific content. Papers on organic substances may be considered if they are precursors for such carbon materials. Relevant application areas for carbon materials include, but are not limited to, electronic and photonic devices, structural and thermal applications, smart materials and systems, energy storage and conversion, catalysis, environmental protection, and biology and medicine.
publishes comprehensive research articles, Letters to the Editor, and invited reviews by leading experts in the field. Papers will be selected that have high scientific merit, impart important new knowledge, and are of high interest to the international carbon materials community. The journal welcomes manuscripts on both bulk and nanoscale carbon materials and is particularly interested in manuscripts that help define and develop the basic science that applies to all carbons, including both established and emerging materials.
