Abstract: Amorphous carbon (a-C), including carbon black and activated charcoal, can be obtained through incomplete combustion of plant and animal substances. In consideration of a rapid development in a-C-reinforced nanocomposites, this chapter reviews current research and relevant techniques for the manufacture and application of a-C and its nanocomposites. On the basis of their superior and unique properties, these materials have been used in various applications for textile, plastic, and health-care industries as well as in the fields of gas and water filtering, electrical applications, and food packaging.
