This book reveals why carbon is playing such an increasingly
prominent role as a sensing material. The various steps that
transform a raw material in a sensing device are thoroughly
presented and critically discussed.The authors deal with all
aspects of carbon-based sensors, starting from the various
hybridization and allotropes of carbon, with specific focus on
micro and nano sized carbons (e.g., carbon nanotubes, graphene) and
their growth processes. The discussion then moves to the role of
functionalization and the different routes to achieve it. Finally,
a number of sensing applications in various fields are presented,
highlighting the connection with the basic properties of the
various carbon allotropes. Readers will benefit from this book s
bottom-up approach, which starts from the local bonding in carbon
solids and ends with sensing applications, linking the local
hybridization of carbon atoms and its modification by
functionalization to specific device performance. This book is a
must-have in the library of any scientist involved in carbon based
