The field of nanocarbon-based composite materials is naturally driving and stimulating applied research today because of the high potentialities offered by both nanotechnology and carbon: each nanocarbon species (nanotubes, nanocones, nanowalls, graphene and graphite nanoplatelets, fullerenes and carbon nanodots, etc.) presents its own specific physico-chemical properties and reacts and performs differently under the same conditions, thereby enabling the optimization of material properties for specific applications (energy storage, water
