Foreword
To say that carbon is a unique element is perhaps self-evident. Allelements are unique, but carbon especially so. Its polymorphs range fromthe
hard,
transparent diamond to the soft, black graphite, with a host of semi-crystalline and amorphous forms also available. It is the only element whichgives its name to two scientific journals,
Carbon
(English) and
Tanso
(Japanese). Indeed, I do not know of another element which can claim toname
one
journal.While there have been recent books on specific forms of carbonnotably carbon fibers, it is a long time since somebody had the courage towrite a book which encompassed all carbon materials. High Piersonperhaps did not know what he was getting into when he started this work.The recent and ongoing research activity on diamond-like films and thef ullerenes, both buckyballs and buckytubes, has provided, almost daily, newresults which, any author knows, makes an attempt to cover them almost
futile.
In this book, the author provides a valuable, up-to-date account of boththe newer and traditional forms of carbon, both naturally occurring and man-made.An initial reading of chapters dealing with some very familiar and somenot-so-familiar topics, shows that the author has make an excellent attemptto cover the
field.
This volume will be a valuable resource for both specialists
in,
and occasional users of, carbon materials for the foreseeable future. Iam delighted to have had the opportunity to see the initial manuscript andto write this foreword.Peter A. ThrowerEditor-in-Chief,
