Understanding surfactant aided aqueous dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes.

Dispersions of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) assisted by surfactant adsorption were prepared for a number of ionic and non-ionic surfactants including sodium 4-dodecylbenzenesulfonate (NaDDBS), hexadecyl(trimethyl)azanium bromide (CTAB), sodium dodecane-1-sulfonate (SDS), Pluronic® F68, Pluronic® F127, and Triton® X-100 to examine the effects of… (More)
