wide variety of carbon nanostructures, from zero-dimensional fullerene through one-dimensional carbon nanotube to two-dimensional graphene, have attracted attention of scientific community worldwide for their exciting properties. Carbon-based nanomaterials have found applications in a vast field-electronics, sensors, biotechnology, energy, structural, etc. We have concentrated our effort in developing new engineering nanomaterials (graphene, carbon nanotubes) and their device applications in the field of energy generation and storage, nanoelectronics, and bio-electronic sensors. This article aims to capture those recent research efforts in synthesis and applications of carbonbased nanomaterials.
