Carbon nanotube–polymer composites: Chemistry, processing, mechanical and electrical properties
Abstract Carbon nanotubes have long been recognized as the stiffest and strongest man-made material known to date. In addition, their high electrical conductivity has roused interest in the area of
Chemical oxidation of multiwalled carbon nanotubes
Abstract The effect of oxidation on the structural integrity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes through acidic (nitric acid and a mixture of sulfuric acid and hydrogen peroxide) and basic (ammonium
Chemistry of carbon nanotubes.

Current progress on the chemical modification of carbon nanotubes.
It is shown here how CNTs formed following Halogenation, followed by Direct Formation on Defect Sites, and the subsequent Encapsulation of Inorganic Substances led to the formation of CNT’s with Metal Nanoparticles.
High volume fraction carbon nanotube-epoxy composites.
The results suggest that targeted chemical modification of the carbon nanotube surface is an effective way to enhance the electrical and mechanical properties of carbon Nanotube-polymer composites.
Functionalized graphene - poly(vinyl alcohol) nanocomposites: Physical and dielectric properties
Chemically derivatized graphene/poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) nanocomposites were successfully fabricated by combination of solution processing and compression molding. SEM imaging combined with XRD
Introduction of Graphene Oxide as Buffer Layer in Perovskite Solar Cells and the Promotion of Soluble n-Butyl-substituted Copper Phthalocyanine as Efficient Hole Transporting Material
Abstract Organometal halide perovskite solar cells have been constructed using soluble tetra-n-butyl-copper phthalocyanine as hole transporting material. Devices were constructed and characterized
Soluble carbon nanotubes.
Carbon nanotubes have attracted great interdisciplinary interest because of their unique structure and properties. However, carbon-nanotube research is challenged by several problems, such as: i)
The effect of oxidation treatment on the properties of multi-walled carbon nanotube thin films
Abstract Carbon nanotube thin sheets – buckypapers – were prepared from multi-walled carbon nanotubes oxidised with different oxidation agents. Prepared buckypapers were characterized by mechanical
