We report a facile chemical route for stabilizing a dispersion of carboxylated single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in a ZnO sol. The dispersion is stabilized via capping of the carboxyl groups on the SWCNT surface by a titania layer, which was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. We also demonstrate… CONTINUE READING
