A theoretical investigation of the electronic and magnetic structure in carbon nanoribbons, defective graphene and carbon peapod structures. The critical importance of electron correlation in the emergent behaviour will be demonstrated for; the generation of long range magnetic interactions, spin dependent transport and the localisation of well defined spin qubits.
