This quantity contains articles of specific curiosity to researchers within the box of statistical mechanics. Its charm is, although, now not restricted to this crew. either articles are written in a mode that makes them obtainable to graduate scholars and to scientists who're drawn to yet now not experts during this box.
This primary quantity within the sequence on nanocarbons for complicated functions offers the most recent achievements within the layout, synthesis, characterization, and purposes of those fabrics for electrochemical strength garage. The hugely well known sequence and quantity editor, Xinliang Feng, has prepare an across the world acclaimed specialist group who covers nanocarbons akin to carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphenes, and porous carbons.

The processing– property relationships of borides are discussed in one of the sections in this book, and the way sinter-aids and sintering conditions can be optimized to develop borides with high sinter density and a better combination of physical and mechanical properties is illustrated. One application that has attracted much attention is ball bearings (see Fig. 2).
