Diameter and rigidity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes are critical factors in mesothelial injury and carcinogenesis
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) have the potential for widespread applications in engineering and materials science. However, because of their needle-like shape and high durability, concernsExpand

Optical and Conductive Characteristics of Metallic Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes with Three Basic Colors; Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow
We present protocols to prepare high-purity metallic single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with three basic colors, cyan, magenta, and yellow, through density gradient centrifugations. Addition ofExpand

Simple and scalable gel-based separation of metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes.
We report a rapid and scalable method for the separation of metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs); the separation is performed by the selective adsorption ofExpand

Tunable carbon nanotube thin-film transistors produced exclusively via inkjet printing.
Inkjet printing in electronics production has attracted considerable attention for a wide-range of applications because it is an environmentally friendly and low-cost technique. [ 1–5 ] In additionExpand

High-Yield Separation of Metallic and Semiconducting Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes by Agarose Gel Electrophoresis
We have developed a novel separation method of metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) using agarose gel electrophoresis. When the SWCNTs were isolated with sodium dodecylExpand

Intraperitoneal administration of tangled multiwalled carbon nanotubes of 15 nm in diameter does not induce mesothelial carcinogenesis in rats.
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) have attracted public attention not only for their potential applications in engineering and materials science but also for possible environmental risks. MWCNTsExpand

Growth of carbon nanotubes via twisted graphene nanoribbons
Carbon nanotubes have long been described as rolled-up graphene sheets. It is only fairly recently observed that longitudinal cleavage of carbon nanotubes, using chemical, catalytical and electricalExpand

Chiral-angle distribution for separated single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Chiral indices (n, m) of metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) selectively separated via the density-gradient ultracentrifugation process were individually assigned byExpand

A simple alcohol-chemical vapor deposition synthesis of single-layer graphenes using flash cooling
We report the synthesis of single-layer graphenes from ethanol using, what we call, “flash cooling” just after chemical vapor deposition. The single-layer graphenes synthesized are high-quality andExpand
