Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are extraordinary molecules due to the simplicity of their structure. Bulk, as well as part by part modification, such as tips, outer or inner walls of CNTs is possible. This helps scientists to achieve the desired properties of the end products.

This text is written especially for those who have had no instruction or limited instruction in CNTs. In this book, we give an idea of technology relating to CNTs as well as R&D taking place all over the world. Several projects that have been sanctioned in India, a comprehensive list of companies and more than 100 patents relating to CNTs have been given.
