Abstract

The era of carbon-based nanotechnology, as it is well-known, started from 1985 when the fullerene C60 was discovered. The rediscovery of carbon nanotubes and unexpected discovery of graphene gave a powerful impulse to the further development of carbon nanostructures. At present, these nanocarbons, as well as nanodiamonds or nanofibers, can already be considered as “conventional” carbon nanostructures.
