Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are part of the so-called B-C-N material system, which includes novel nanostructures of carbon (C), doped-carbon, boron (B), boron nitride (BN), carbon nitride (CNx), boron-carbon nitride (BxCyNz), and boron carbide (BxCy). BNNTs and CNTs are structurally similar and share extraordinary mechanical properties, but they differ in chemical, biological, optical, and electrical properties. Therefore, hybrid nanotubes constructed of B, C, N elements are expected to form a new class of nanotubes with tunable properties between those of CNTs and BNNTs. In addition, these B-C-N nanostructures will further enhance and complement the applications of CNTs and BNNTs. With contributions from leading experts, B-C-N Nanotubes and Related Nanostructures is the first book to cover all theoretical and experimental aspects of this emerging material system, and meets the need for a comprehensive summary of the tremendous advances in research on B-C-N materials in recent years.

Professor Yoke Khin Yap received his Ph.D. in 1999 from Osaka University as a "Monbusho" scholar. He was a fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) before joining Michigan Tech in 2002. Professor Yap received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2005. He has published more than 140 articles including book and encyclopedia chapters, review papers, peer-reviewed articles, and conference proceedings. His research program at Michigan tech has been supported by the U.S. Department of Army (DOA), National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and multiple DOE Nanoscale Science Research Centers. Professor Yap is also the first elected Chair of the user group of the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
