Summary This book covers a multidisciplinary research field that combines materials chemistry and physics with nanotechnology and applied energy sciences. On the one hand, itincludes introductory chapters on carbon nanomaterials (including synthesis, modification and characterization) and on composites and hybrids (definition and principles). On the other hand, italso provides a critical overview of the present state of research, discussing materials challenges and various energy applications as well as fundamental topics, such as interfacial transfer processes
