Peeling back the layers


Carbon onions are multi-layered carbon materials that receive less attention than their carbon cousins graphene and nanotubes. This may soon change. Carbon based nanomaterials have been extensively theoretically examined, demonstrate and commercialized in the last decade due to their exceptional electronic and structural properties. Carbon onions (COs) are relatively new members of the carbon nanomaterials
