1. Carbon Nanotubes and Related Structures New Materials for the Twenty-First Centuryby Peter J F Harris, (Department of Chemistry, University of Reading, UK), Published by Cambridge University Press and also published in China by Beijing World Publishing., 296pp Hardback ... ISBN: 0521554462. Price: £50-00/$80-00, Paperback ISBN: 0521005337. Price: £29.95/$39.95.

The new book by Peter Harris reviews the properties of carbon nanotubes and clarifies their promise as revolutionary new materials for the twenty-first century. Harris has written a most readable and useful book, which contains a wealth of up-to-date information for specialists and non-specialists. The book highlights the main challenges that have to be overcome if carbon-based nanotube technology is to fulfil the exciting, indeed revolutionary, promise that the already-known properties forecast.

2. Physical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes, English / Japanese, Authors: Riichiro Saito, Gene Dresslhaus, and M. S. Dresselhaus, Publisher: Imperial College Press (London) , ISBN 1-86094-093-5, Price: $35(hard Cover)/$24(soft cover) U.S. 258pages.

Physical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes is an introductory textbook for the graduate students and researchers who start to learn carbon nanotubes from many fields of science. Although progress in the field is still at an early stage, the book focuses on the basic principles behind the physical properties. Some computational source codes which generate coordinates of carbon nanotube are included in the textbook which will be useful to start the research.

4. Carbon Nanotubes, Basic Concepts and Physical Properties, ISBN-10: 3-527-40386-8, ISBN-13: 978-3-527-40386-8 - Wiley-VCH, Berlin, 1. Edition - January 2004, 132.- Euro, 2004. IX, 215 Pages, Hardcover 126 Fig.- Monograph.

This text is an introduction to the physical concepts needed for investigating carbon nanotubes and other one-dimensional solid-state systems. Written for a wide scientific readership, each chapter consists of an instructive approach to the topic and sustainable ideas for solutions. The former is generally comprehensible for physicists and chemists, while the latter enable the reader to work towards the state of the art in that area. The book gives for the first time a combined theoretical and experimental description of topics like luminescence of carbon nanotubes, Raman scattering, or transport measurements. The theoretical concepts discussed range from the tight-binding approximation, which can be followed by pencil and paper, to first-principles simulations.
