Carbon-based materials exhibit unique properties driven by the many different bonding configurations available to the element carbon. Many of them proved to be compatible with inorganic and/or biologic systems and might be considered as useful materials in medicine and biology. The carbon nanoparticles existing in environment are an important factor on healthy, either by their toxicity or by interaction with pathogen microorganisms, Carbon black is nowadays one of the additive most widely used to make composites and the applicability of nanocarbon-based composites depends on how well its properties can be manipulated. The activation of carbon materials improves their functional properties and depends on their structure. Through the variation of the experimental parameters, the method of laser-induced pyrolysis allows obtaining carbon nanoparticles with different morphologies providing useful functional properties. The focus is to drive these materials into a regime where they can naturally interface with the surrounding matter. With other words, the goal of the work is to investigate how to modulate, through laser induced pyrolysis, the characteristics of carbon nanopowders in order to achieve functional properties claimed by specific applications.
