Aims and Scope

Carbon Letters aims to be a comprehensive journal with complete coverage of carbon materials and carbon-rich molecules. These materials range from, but are not limited to, diamond and graphite through chars, semicokes, mesophase substances, carbon fibers, carbon nanotubes, graphenes, carbon blacks, activated carbons, pyrolytic carbons, glass-like carbons, etc. Papers on the secondary production of new carbon and composite materials from the above mentioned various carbons are within the scope of the journal. Papers on organic substances, including coals, will be considered only if the research has close relation to the resulting carbon materials. Carbon Letters also seeks to keep abreast of new developments in their specialist fields and to unite in finding alternative energy solutions to current issues such as the greenhouse effect and the depletion of the ozone layer. The renewable energy basics, energy storage and conversion, solar energy, wind energy, water energy, nuclear energy, biomass energy, hydrogen production technology, and other clean energy technologies are also within the scope of the journal. Carbon Letters invites original reports of fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of carbon science and technology.

In the journal, some of the covered technical areas are

Adsorption and Surface (Reactivity, Catalysts, etc. )
Clean Energy Storage (Secondary batteries, Capacitors, Fuel cells, Gas storage, Electronic / electrochemical properties, etc)
Carbon Nanomaterials (Particles, Tubes, Fibers, Coils, etc. in nano scale size)
Biomedical Carbons
Industrial Carbons (Chars, Cokes, Graphite, Flame formed carbons, etc.)
Noval Carbons (New-form carbons, Chemically modified carbons, Carbon alloys, Functional carbons, etc)
Porous Materials and Environmental Applications (Membranes, etc.)
Structural Carbons (Whiskers, Fibers, Composites, etc.)
Carbon Science (Precursor chemistry, Carbonization, Graphitization, Materials characterization, Computer simulation of carbon, etc.)
Other Products and Applications (Pyrocarbons, Diamonds, Diamond-like carbons, etc.)
