Nomenclature of sp2 carbon nanoforms
MetadataShow full item record
Carbon’s versatile bonding has resulted in the discovery of a bewildering variety of nanoforms which urgently need a systematic and standard nomenclature . Besides fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene, research teams around the globe now produce a plethora of carbon-based nanoforms such as ‘bamboo’ tubes, ‘herringbone’ and ‘bell’ structures. Each discovery duly gains a new, sometimes whimsical, name, often with its discoverer unaware that the same nanoform has already been reported several times but with different names (for example the nanoform in Fig. 1h is in different publications referred to as ‘bamboo’ , ‘herringbone-bamboo’ , ‘stacked-cups’  and ‘stacked-cones’ ). In addition, a single name is often used to refer to completely different carbon nanoforms (for example, the ‘bamboo’ structure in  is notably different from ‘bamboo’ in ). The result is a confusing overabundance of names which makes literature searches and an objective comparison of results extremely difficult, if not impossible.
