term: carbon nanomaterials
Determination:a collective term denoting carbon-based small-scale structures or nanostructured materials.
Description:Carbon nanomaterials include fullerenes (see also fullerite) and their derivatives (see also fulleride, endohedral fullerene), carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibres, nanodiamonds and graphenes (see also graphane).
Carbon nanomaterials are often used as filling compounds in composites, the most widely known of which are composite materials with a polymer matrix. ...
