Noncovalent functionalization of carbon nanotubes by wrapping them using pi-conjugated polymers is one of the most promising techniques to sort, separate, and purify semiconducting nanotube species for applications in optoelectronic devices. However, wide energy bandgap polymers commonly used in this technique reduce charge transport through the nanotube network. To avoid the formation of insulating barriers between the tubes, challenging procedures for the removal of the polymer from the… CONTINUE READING
