Production processes for carbon nanotubes often produce mixtures of solid morphologies that are mechanically entangled or that self-associate into aggregates. Entangled or aggregated nanoparticles often need to be dispersed into fluid suspensions in order to develop materials that have unique mechanical characteristics or transport properties. This paper reviews the effects of milling, ultrasonication, high shear flow, elongational flow, functionalization, and surfactant and dispersant systems… CONTINUE READING
