What is the new choise for Raman characterization f carbon materials?
Carbon is the most abundant element in the nature. It has low cost, long life, high temperature resistance, diverse stuctures, and high specific capacitance of carbon materials. It is currently the most active research direction in the field of electrochemistry. It is also the one of the inportant topics in the development of clean & renewable energy, and play a vital role in electeic cars, mobile communications, solar and wind power, aerospace and defense technology, etc.
The research of carbon nanotechnology is quite active in recent years. Common carbon materials is graphene, graphite, carbon nanotubes and carbon black, etc. They all show the unique electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and mechanical strength. It's all due to the unique structure of each allogtaft. However, how to describe the types and quality of different carbon nanomaterials in a simple quite way to effectively monitor, control production and later application is an inportant issue. Because of the molecular vibration characteristics of nanomaterials, Raman spectroscopy has been widely used in the research field of carbon nanomatericals. It is a fast, simple, and ideal analysis tool for characterizing carbon materials.
