Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) exhibit advanced electrical and surface properties useful for high performance nanoelectronics. Important to future manufacturing of nanotube circuits is a large-scale assembly of SWNTs into aligned forms. Despite progress in assembly and oriented synthesis, pristine SWNTs in aligned and close-packed form remain elusive and needed for high-current, -speed, and -density devices through collective operations of parallel SWNTs. Here, we develop a Langmuir… 
Supramolecular assembly of single-walled carbon nanotubes at air-solid interface
AbstractWe formed a stable and reversible Langmuir film (LF) of bundles of unfunctionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) at the air–water interface. The film exhibits gas-like and
Dose-controlled, floating evaporative self-assembly and alignment of semiconducting carbon nanotubes from organic solvents.
It is shown that the aligned semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes with exceptional electronic-type purity are aligned within ±14°, are packed at a density of ∼50 s-SWCNTs μm(-1), and constitute primarily a well-ordered monodispersed layer.
New confinement method for the formation of highly aligned and densely packed single-walled carbon nanotube monolayers.
A new generic method allowing the formation of a very high density of aligned SWNT film is presented, representing a new route to large-scale integrated nanotube electronics.
Unidirectional Langmuir-Blodgett-Mediated Alignment of Polyaniline-Functionalized Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes for NH3 Gas Sensor applications.
Large-scale alignment of PANI@MWCNTs demonstrated in this investigation would enable the fabrication of high-density MEMS based nanoscale sensor arrays for high performance NH3 gas sensor applications.
Lyotropic liquid-crystalline solutions of high-concentration dispersions of single-walled carbon nanotubes with conjugated polymers.
To take full advantage of the anisotropic charge-transport properties of SWNTs and to enhance their performance in high-strength composite materials, it is necessary to align them over a large area.
Alignment of Nanoscale Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Strands
Depositing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with controllable density, pattern and orientation on electrodes presents a challenge in today’s research. Here, we report a novel solvent
