Single wall carbon nanotube-Nafion composite actuators
(The American Chemical Society: Nano Letters, 2002-11)
Single wall carbon nanotube (SWNT)-Nafion composite actuators have been demonstrated for 0.1-18% w/w doping of purified SWNTs within the polymer matrix. The high purity SWNTs, >95% w/w, were homogeneously dispersed into ...
Effects of alkyl amide solvents on the dispersion of single-wall carbon nanotubes
(The American Chemical Society: Journal of Physical Chemistry B, 2004-11-04)
Stable dispersions of both as-produced (raw soot) and purified laser-generated single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have been demonstrated with several alkyl amide solvents. Optical absorption analysis over a range of ...
Formation of single-wall carbon nanotube superbundles
(The American Chemical Society: Chemistry of Materials, 2000-03)
Since their discovery in 1993, carbon single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs) have been of great interest because of their expected novel electronic, mechanical, and gas adsorption properties. Difficulties arise in measuring these ...
Assessing the hydrogen adsorption capacity of single-wall carbon nanotube / metal composites
(American Institute of Physics Conference Proceedings: Hydrogen in Materials and Vacuum Systems, 2003-07-11)
Carefully controlled and calibrated experiments indicate a maximum capacity for adsorption of hydrogen on SWNTs is ~8 wt% under room temperature and pressure conditions. Samples displaying this maximum value were prepared ...
Electrochemical transformation of SWNT/Nafion composites
(The Electrochemical Society: Electrochemical and Solid State Letters, 2004-10-08)
The electrochemical performance of single wall carbon nanotube (SWNT)/Nafion composite electrodes were studied in sulfuric acid solutions. Electrochemical oxidation of the highly dispersed SWNTs within the Nafion matrix ...
Investigation of the electronic structure of carbon single wall nanotube hybrid nanostructures
(Plasmonic Nano-imaging and Nanofabrication: Proceedings of the SPIE, 2005-08-03)
The effects of protonation on the structure of the carbon single-walled nanotube (SWNT) polymer composites were studied by solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques and Raman spectroscopy. In addition, ...
Synthesis and characterization of boron-doped single-wall carbon nanotubes produced by the laser vaporization technique
(The American Chemical Society: Chemistry of Materials, 2006-05-16)
We present the first successful high-yield laser vaporization synthesis of high-quality boron-doped single-wall carbon nanotubes (B-SWNTs). Boron was loaded into graphite targets in the form of elemental B as well as nickel ...
A simple and complete purification of single-walled carbon nanotube materials
(Wiley: Advanced Materials, 1999-11)
Growth of multi-walled carbon nanotubes by injection CVD using cyclopentadienyliron dicarbonyl dimer and cyclooctatetraene iron tricarbonyl
(Elsevier: Materials Science and Engineering B, 2005-02-15)
Preferential oriented multiwalled carbon nanotubes were prepared by the injection chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method using either cyclopentadienyliron dicarbonyl dimer or cycloctatetraene iron tricarbonyl as the iron ...
