  • carbonaceous nanocomposites;
  • carbonaceous nanomaterials;
  • hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) synthesis


This chapter discusses the latest advances in the synthesis of unique carbonaceous nanocomposites and nanomaterials via the hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) synthesis method. Some representative examples of the applications of carbonaceous nanomaterials and nanocomposites from the HTC process are briefly presented with a special focus on their environmental, catalytic energy, and biological applications. Finally, the chapter provides a summary and an outlook on this active research topic.
