Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) can be synthesized and purified by a number of techniques, and always contain certain amount of impurities of varying composition (mostly metal catalyst and non-tubular carbon), as well as defects resulting from purification. Particular purification route also affects homogeneity of nanotube material and its dispersability in organic solvents, which are important in the subsequent application development. A number of analytical characterization tools have… CONTINUE READING
