Neutron Studies of Carbon Nanostructures

Research output: Article


The possibilities of neutron scattering methods in the research of carbon nanomaterials are outlined. Some examples of determinations of the structure of crystalline solids, the characterization of films, layered structures, and dispersed systems are given. Quasi-1D fullerene structures, single-wall carbon nanotubes (their chirality and hydrogen storage capacity), liquid dispersions of nanodiamonds and shungites, fullerene solutions, and the structure of water in pores and at interfaces are considered. The results of the application of nanodiamond powders in fundamental neutron physics, as well as the possibilities of carrying out neutron investigations in Russia, are discussed.
